Do Terrorists have Ringtones?

I’d venture to say it wouldn’t sound anything like this, which got a 15-year-old Singaporean girl in a lot of hot water (via Boing Boing):

[The girl] was almost refused the right to board a plane at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport on Monday due to her phone’s rather bizarre ring tone.

Security guards in the airport got a start when they heard a voice shouting, “I am a terrorist.”

The “voice” was soon found to be coming from the young Singaporean woman’s mobile phone.

The girl was immediately required to delete the strange ring tone. She was allowed to board after getting a severe telling off from the airport security officials.

The ringtone in question sounds a lot like a snippet from DJ Vadim’s song Terrorist (feat. Moshun Man), hip hop track released back in 1999… before everyone started freaked out about people just saying the “T” word in public, or having it on their cell phone.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. Having been to Singapore many times flying in and out of Guangzhou this is not at all surprising. They don’t mess around there. Just check out their drug laws!
