    Other Hajj myths

    1. It's a big hit with the college kids during Spring Break.

    2. The black box known as the Kaaba that Muslims walk around counterclockwise 7 times is really made of the same indestructable material that black boxes are made of in airplanes. Why else do you think that they like to blow up airplanes?

    3. The Hajj was started as a tradition by Mohammad. Instead, it was started by the Holiday Inn Expresses in and around the Kaaba.

    4. Hajj was really named after a friend of Mohamads who sttutterred rreallyy badd.
