“What’s the difference between the Titanic and Al Qaeda?"/"Al Qaeda made it to New York.”

Jokes about the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York City’s World Trade Center are numerous, although not politically correct. One riddle is:

Q: What’s the difference between the Titanic and Al Qaeda?
A: Al Qaeda made it to New York.


The joke was posted on Twitter on November 26, 2014.


Wikipedia: September 11 attacks
The September 11 attacks (also referred to as 9/11) were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group Al-Qaeda on the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks consisted of suicide attacks used to target symbolic U.S. landmarks.

Wikipedia: RMS Titanic
RMS Titanic (/taɪˈtænɪk/) was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning hours of 15 April 1912, after it collided with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard the ship, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. The RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line.
