    Hey I saw Mad Max a couple of days ago and I think for the next short they should do Mad Matt. I could only give you this much now go do it.

    Lol I looked up Kalimah and... "Glory is for Allah and all Praise is due to Allah. There is none worthy of worship except Allah. Allah is the greatest. There is no power and no strength except with Allah the Most High, the Great." The Fourth Kalimah -Kalimah Tauheed.

      There's actually a small mistake you're making here in your search term. The term is actually Kali Ma referring to the Hindu goddess Kali. Also known as the scene from Indiana Jones. Nothing to do with Muslim people actually

      Sorry if I offended you Adam, I was only quoting wikipedia because I was curious as to why they were chanting that. I don't have anything against Muslims.

      Nah, just a reference to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

    Caly Ma, Cail Ma, Cally ma, 'Call mom', that is a good college tip as well, hidden in the form of a devil worshiping death chant, Clever, Clever, ;)

    How unprofessional. You need to make the incision across the sternum and down the ventral axis. Really lets you open up the chest better. And you didn't even wear gloves! You know Lord Frisbo hates it when people touch his food.
