Super Geniuses at work
Iran's Foreign Minister has complained about the British government's conferring of knighthood on Salman Rushdie, author of the novel The Satanic Verses and several lesser-known works, two or three of which I've actually tried to read.
Said Mohammad Ali Hosseini:
Giving a medal to someone who is among the most detested figures in the Islamic community is ... a blatant example of the anti-Islamism of senior British officials. The measure that has taken place for paying tribute to this apostate and detested figure will definitely put British statesmen and officials at odds with Islamic societies, the emotions and sentiments of which have again been provoked.
In other news, Wile E. Coyote has filed yet another complaint with the state of New Mexico, objecting to the naming of the Roadrunner as the state bird in 1949.Posted at 10:38 AM to Dyssynergy
