Man, won't those Islamic terrorists be embarrassed when they walk into this birthday party.

Lookout for those birthday candles, too. They could be a bomb.

Sarah Ericsson of Karlskrona, Sweden just celebrated her 21st birthday. For her party, she blew up large golden mylar balloons in the shape of numbers 2 and 1. The balloons appeared through the window to a nosy neighbor as reading "IS," for Islamic State.

The neighbor took a photograph of the propaganda, and reported her to police, causing them to begin an investigation into her terrorist affiliations.

You never want to be the neighbor who is too stupid to not recognize when ISIS is transmitting secret information via mylar in your own neighborhood.

When police arrived at Sarah's home on Monday to questions her, she was away at school, but her boyfriend, Fabien Åkesson was still in the house.

As Fabien told The Local, police caught him in the extremist act of brushing his teeth, and "immediately realized they had made a mistake."

I guess terrorists don't really stop to manage dental hygiene. Nevertheless, they were still against the birthday paraphernalia.

"They asked me to take down the balloons," Fabien told The Local. "So they avoid further misunderstanding."

Yes, they can't keep coming back as neighbors continue to see new messages as the balloons deflate.
