The giraffe is Moses, the penguin's Jesus...

...and they called the bear Mohammed.

And now their kindly teacher is going to suffer sixty lashes for it.

I am beginning to think that there's nothing wrong with large swathes of this planet that 'round the clock carpet bombing wouldn't fix.

As long as the wind is blowing in the right direction and those bombs are armed with nukes, I'm with you. If they can't play nicely in polite society I want the survivors sterile.

Thank you, Tam. Now I will have "They Call The Wind Maria"/"They Called The Bear Mohammed" from the show PAINT YOUR WAGON in my head alllllll day. (smirk)

As for carpet bombing--I used to think such a comment regarding genocide akin to the Holocaust. But we're not talking about establish a Master Race here. I'm kinda leaning toward "a civilized society."

Crap like this really chaps my hide.

Where do I push the button?

The scary part about the poll in your link: almost fifteen hundred people thought the Sudanese weren't over-reactng.

Any White woman foolish enough to go to Sudan deserves everything she gets.

No Sudanese went to England and forced the silly woman to get on the plane at gunpoint.

So she's going to get flogged, tough!
Maybe other White women will learn to stay out of Africa!!!

"White women"?

What does color have to do with it?

Don't make me bring the snark.

See? Comments like this are just one of the many reasons I love you. "Bomb the Yanomamö!"

Carpet bombing the Yanomamo might be overkill. The best solution for them might be to take a bunch of out-of-work former East German women's swimmers, give them aluminum Louisville sluggers, and turn them loose in the headwaters of the Amazon:

"Me Tarzan, you..." *WHAAANNNGG!*

I reckon the Fierce People would snap to right quick-like.

In case you don't know, BLACK women are native to Sudan.

Does your wife get pissed when you cut eyeholes in the pillowcases?

Your Snark-Fu is unriveled!

Gertrude Bell didn't stay home, and without her there could not have been a DG Hogarth or a TE Lawrence (or the countries of Jordan and Iraq). Damn meddling white women.

I think most commenters here would stipulate they'd also be mightily pissed had the teacher in question been a native Sudanese. But lashings, jailings and executions of natives don't even make the news.

She got 15 days and deportation. But the lovely mobs over there are calling for her execution.
