Burger King Case

people are retarded nowadays

YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!

THE fast-food chain, Burger King, is withdrawing its ice-cream cones after the lid of the dessert offended a Muslim.

The man claimed the design resembled the Arabic inscription for Allah, and branded it sacrilegious, threatening a "jihad".


The chain is being forced to spend thousands of pounds redesigning the lid with backing from The Muslim Council of Britain. It apologised and said: "The design simply represents a spinning ice-cream cone."

The offending lid was spotted in a branch in Park Royal last week by business development manager Rashad Akhtar, 27, of High Wycombe.

He was not satisfied by the decision to withdraw the cones and has called on Muslims to boycott Burger King. He said: "This is my jihad. How can you say it is a spinning swirl? If you spin it one way to the right you are offending Muslims."

A Muslim Council spokesman said: "We commend the sensitive and prompt action that Burger King has taken."

I've got two words for these religious dildos, and they're not "let's dance"

I find the same attempts by christian fundamentalists to find fault/dishonor/sacrilege with harmless, tweedy things to be as infuriating as well.


I mean, no bra-burning feminist went after Yamaha for naming their Virago ("a hysterical, shrieking woman"), but you know, at some point, somewhere, someone is being offended by my post, so I better quit before someone posts a jihad on my heinie.

offended?

He was offended????

He should've been with me in Turkey (1987) when I gave a Turk an MRE that contained a dehydrated pork pattie. What was to come after he swallowed his first and only bite, I'll never forget.

Fuck....I had to give him all my porno mags just to calm him down!

Personally being a muslim and all i think that is pretty dumb. They weren't intending to have arabic writing on their icecream so whats the big deal. Now if they were, that would be a different story but dang just about any squiggly line can look like a word or letter in some language....

I love how whenever a Muslim gets pissed at something he has to call for a jihad. "Oh no, my toiletpaper has a design on it that is offensive. American infidels!.... I call for a Jihad against Charmin!"

I agree with Heesh, he's just trying to get his 10 minutes in the spotlight.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
