Hate to spoil the fun but as far as the Islamic group are concerned ISIS is/was not a name but an acronym.

I notice that it is for men and women. Surely it should be called is/ers or ers/is instead of is/is

Unfortunately Isis is a common name, after and Egyptian Goddess.
I know people that were given a hard time and teased when the
weather service names hurricanes after them...

I remember the Morris Isis which was a bigger Oxford which in turn was a bigger Minor. And they say that cars all look the same today!

Isis is also the name of a river, as well as a sugar mill, in Queensland.

I tried posting this yesterday - was it moderated,

Women go in western looking, but due to the hairdresser they come out wearing a burka because of the shame of it.
