Iran and Republicans sittin' in a tree...

I'd like a coffee and a Danish please.

Come again?

Coffee. Danish.

Oh oh, sorry. Yes. (Turns to kitchen) Abdullah! Gimme a coffee and a Rose of the Prophet Muhammad!! (Turns back to disgruntled customer) Sorry, sir, it's a... that thing you ordered. It's just that the confectioner's union, the cake guys, they, you know. They didn't like the comics thing so they renamed it Rose of the Prophet Muhammad as "... a punishment for those who started misusing freedom of expression to insult the sanctities of Islam..."

Obviously, Freedom Fries come to mind. DA writes: "Both those zealots are a few freedom-fries short of a Happy Meal."

And lest we believe this nominal zealotry began with the Iraq War, it's worth reminding ourselves, a la Swanson's Hungry Man dinners, that once upon a time we stuck it to the Jerrys during WWI by changing Hamburger to the mouth-watering Salisbury Steak. (BloggerRadio)
