We have all heard the stories where Islamic Terrorists will be rewarded if they are killed or blow themselves up with 40 virgins when they reach Paradise.  Not the Paradise where we live but the other one.

I was reading recently that some scholars believe that this is a mistranslation of ancient texts.  The passage where it occurs refers to food stuffs like a land of milk and honey and a reward of plump sweet things that most likely referred to dates or candied raisins which were a special treat way back when.

Can you imagine some poor modern day Achmed showing up in paradise with his singed beard still smoking, lining up for his long anticipated reward only to be given a handful of Glosettes and saying             Hey Waiiiit a Minute!!!!!
