When Mohamed Osman Mohamud parked his not-actually-exploding van next to Pioneer Courthouse Square to bomb a tree-lighting ceremony, did he know he could walk two blocks to Fox Tower to watch his jihadist brothers try to bomb the London Marathon? The moronic mujahideen in Four Lions could be Mohamud’s British contacts: Radicalized would-be rappers who explain the Quran with parables from The Lion King, they have real bombs, which they successfully detonate on themselves, a crow and a sheep. Do you find domestic terrorism less funny after Portland tasted its sick stupidity? Wrong lesson. We’re in it now. We have to find it more funny. Academy, Laurelhurst.
