Is it possible to change your reward from 72 virgins to something like 72 flavors of ice cream?

My edition of the Koran doesn't promise 72 virgins, but there were a lot of nubile young boys in the afterlife.

Will Comedy Central also have to censor him?

Reader's Digest once did a series on Joe's body parts. How did they publish the chapter entitled "I am Joe's Penis". Oh. Back then everyone did not fear terrorists.
