Default My Own "Power of Prayer"

Imagine if Christianity was the "chosen religion", and Divine Poetic Justice was meted out in the afterlife..... or God has a great dark sense of humour:

You could pray for suicide bombs to go off just a tad prematurely.

All terrorist candidates would be prone to air sickness and tinnitis.

All suicide bombers would be assigned to the Jehovah's Witness room for eternity.

Wouldn't it be great if the "17 virgins" awaiting those martyrs turn out to be like, super ugly?
Or nuns? Or ugly nuns?
Or lesbians?
Or (even better) gay guys? Fat ugly desperate virgin gay guys with bad breath, tons of body hair and B.O.? Fending off 17 interested guys for an eternity...... now that's priceless. (Not to mention, the moment they give in, they take the express elevator down to that "other place"... bonus.)

And how is the female suicide bomber to be rewarded in the afterlife? 17 male suicide bombers, I suppose... now that's a lot of laundry.

There is an awful lot of leeway for interpretation in every holy book, and in this case, the exact type of virgin is implied, but not specified.
