Hidey Ho, Primates!! It's time to announce the official winner in the Real Banana's `You're the Qadi' contest and award the prize.
This was a quiz that put you in the chair of an Islamic Qadi and allowed you to take a hack at testing your knowledge of sharia law based on actual cases, just like the real Qadis do...and we had a couple of real jihadis of jurisprudence in ibn-Habish and Ali Booba come up with the questions and answers.
There were a total of twelve entries on site and via e-mail, and the answers were given here.
The scoring catagories were as follows:
0 - 5 - Infidel dog, incapable of higher understanding
6-7 - You show some understanding, but need much instruction in the ways of Allah
8-10 - Ya Allah! Want to fill in for ibn-Habish or Ali Booba in court sometime?
I'm sorry to say it, but none of the entries made it past the Infidel Dog category.
Nevertheless, it is my pleasure to announce that Frankie M, with a score of 5, is the winner!
In awarding our prize, Weekend Monkey needs to provide a little clarification.To tell you the truth, my face is a little redder than usual.
At the Real Banana, we have certain budgetary considerations, and when we offered our prize, we figured that it would be won hands down by a Muslim from the Middle East, who would be able to fully appreciate it. In fact, the prize was actually donated by one of ibn Habish's relatives...scroll down....
Frankie, you have won a specially trained camel, Fatima, for your very own! Isn't she gorgeous? I'm not exactly sure what she's specially trained for, but ibn Habish told me that camels like Fatima are very much in demand for those long lonely desert nights.
He also said that according to the Qu'ran, you can't eat the meat afterwards. I have no clue what he meant by that..must be some Arab culture thing.Anyway, Frankie, she's all yours, you lucky infidel!
Like I said, we expected this contest to be won by someone in the locality, so the Real Banana did not budget for shipping costs and can assume no liability or responsibility in this regard...but send an email to me at Wendmonkey@yahoo.com and I'll put you in touch with ibn Habish's brother -in-law so that you can arrange transport for Fatima to your locale. Shouldn't be too expensive, he knows some people.
Like Ali Booba quipped, it's cheaper than getting married...what a jokester!
Congratulations to Frankie M..and to the rest of you, thanks for playing. I think we all learned a lot.
