ANSWERS

1. Angry Birds. Angry Birds Land. In Finland.



2. Draw Something. Here’s one of mine (not one of mine):



3. Al-Qaida.

4. Al-Qaida’s. From the Foreign Policy blog:

There are some new features, including a quiz in the table of contents. A help-wanted notice suggests the magazine is looking for web help, researchers, translators, and "sisters who can write on women-related issues." There's also a long feature on the Pakistani army and its "role in the crusades." The regular humor feature, the Mad Magazine-esque "A Cold Diss," mocks the late Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi and refers to the famous "Zenga Zenga" YouTube video. (They're presumably aware it was made by an Israeli.) The instructional "open-source jihad" feature gives some helpful hints on handgun training.


5. Goldman Sachs.
