If He’d Only Stopped at 85 Wives …

According to an AP article, 84-year-old Nigerian preacher Mohammed Bello Masaba has been arrested for having 86 wives and 107 children in violation of Islamic laws regarding marriage. The article states Muslim principles forbid men from having more than 4 wives but Masaba believes it’s Allah’s will:

“A man with 10 wives would collapse and die, but my own power is given by Allah. That is why I have been able to control 86 of them.”

I’m no expert on Nigerian marriages but I’m skeptical that Masaba can control 86 wives, and there’s no way he could do in America. In America, he’d be lucky to control the TV remote.

  1. He will be sentenced to live with them.

  2. What will be his sentence? He has 86 wives. How do you punish a man who loves punishment?

  3. Here’s an idea. Don’t change your comment while the site seems slowed by traffic.

  5. Why?!?!?!?!

    Even 86 Swedish bikini models would give me a migraine.

  6. Betcha Sully would swoon with delight at thought of donating creamy loads to 86 different hunky young males. Swedish blondes may well be quite appealing to the likes of Tiger Woods and assorted black NFL players. Just where do the most attractive women actually originate? Based on winning international beauty contests, Venezuelans beauties do ok. And we often here that Thai ladies are the most beautiful. My own taste has been more for leggy Polish lasses with high cheekbones and wide shoulders. To each his or her own. I see Mrs. Obamalamadingdong doesn’t want anyone voting based on looks though.

  7. “That is why I have been able to control 86 of them.”

    And that explains the basic, cultural disconnect between the West, and Islam!

  8. Hmmmmm.

    Gets worse.

    Women who live together over a long period of time will eventually have their menstrual cycles synchronize.

    86 women all with PMS at the same precise time.

  10. Where’s assistant devil’s advocate when you need him?

    Copying him: I’ll bet 85 of them had it soft.

  11. ONE wife is enough trouble. Why would anyone want more than that?

    And not only did 86 women simultaneously PMSing, he had 86 mothers-in-law.

    Even if he brought it on himself, that’s a lot of suffering for one life.

  12. That’s nothing. King Solomon had 1000 of them! That was when men were men. 😉

  13. Actually, seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines. 1 Kings 11:3
    1000 in all.

  14. I think I got a letter from him saying he needed my bank account info and my SS#.

  16. One is a challenge, 12 makes it easy to find a warm bed each night, 86?

    GOD can’t even remember their names! Guy is doomed to some level of anxiety that can’t be described!

    But then he is probably the viagra poster boy as well eh?

    The only obvious thing I see is that he might have been validity challenged to “staying on” the “FULL EIGHT SECONDS”!

    Most of the time! :)
