Although there is currently an Iraqi insurgent group calling itself "Al Qaeda in Iraq," whether this group is directly connected to bin Laden is unknown.
The joke about the Dionne quintuplets and birth control doesn't really make sense. One, birth control wasn't widely available in 1934. Two, the suggestion that the Dionnes had five children because they didn't use birth control is silly. They're quintuplets! They were all born at the same time!
