STIFLER'S MOM AND ISLAMIC LIBERATION

I know. Nothing the two could possibly have in common, right?

Well, it so happens that I'm editing a book about al-Qaeda and its affiliate terror organizations. In one of the chapters, the text notes that there's a al-Qaeda affiliate in the Phillipines that is known as the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. And yes, they go by their acronym: MILF.

If this is lost on you, I refer you to the MILF phenomenon brought to the cultural fore by Paul and Chris Weitz in their teen comedy classic, "American Pie," and ushered into musical awareness by Fountains of Wayne in their song, "Stacy's Mom."

Al-Qaeda...not funny.

Acronyms with double meanings...priceless.

LORETTA: Oh. I thought we were the Popular Front.
REG: People's Front! C-huh.
FRANCIS: Whatever happened to the Popular Front, Reg?
REG: He's over there.
P.F.J.: Splitter!
