Thousands flock to see 'divine' calf

Thousands of people flocked to southern Egypt today to seek blessing from a calf they believe was born as God's reply to the publication in Europe of cartoons depicting the prophet, police said.

Some 20,000 thousand people had gathered in front of Mohammed Abu Dif's house in the village of Tunis to see the holy mammal, whose skin folds when he was born reportedly formed the words "There is no God but Allah", a police official said on condition of anonymity.

He said the villagers flocked from all over the southern governorate of Sohag to the farmer's house and had to be dispersed by police, who feared the gathering could get out of control.

Witnesses said they believed the calf was "Allah's response to current attacks against Islam", the official said.

He was referring to the publication in a Danish daily five months ago of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed, which is banned in Islam.

It proves they got a better control of their population than we do. All we could manage was $20k for a piece of grill cheese, they managed to gather 20k people to look at a calf... not bad...

Hi Vash-

Praise the Lord and hallelujah! I'm checking into JetBlue for holy flights to Florida to pray to the glorious whitebread, butter, and yellow cheese sandwich.

Ok, we're supposed to fear a god who at his best can only manage to spell a few words in a calf's ass?



BWAAHHAAHHAAHAAA!!!!! :laughing:



At least Christians can claim their god (before opting for his cullinary endeavors) caused mass floods and turned people into pillars of salt for wronging him.

But wait, it gets better...

Iranians turn on Danish pastries

Not content with pelting European embassies with petrol bombs to protest against cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, Iranians are renaming Danish pastries.

From now on, the sweet, flaky pastries that dominate the shelves in Iran's cake shops will be known as Roses of the Prophet Mohammed, according to the official IRNA news agency.

"No one is allowed to make fun of our beloved and respected prophet," said Hassan Nasserzadeh, a cake-shop owner in central Tehran.

The pastries are baked every day and are not imported or subject to any boycott of Danish goods imposed over the cartoons.
So, they're not going to stop MAKING Danish pastries, they're just not going to CALL them Danish pastries.

Oooooh, that's telling them.

So how is that any different from the liberty cabbage and freedom fries and hotdogs that we did in the states? (Hot dogs was the only one that stuck)

Didn't hear about the cabbage or hotdog (what happened with them???) but, yes, changing the name of your fries to Freedom Fries is just as pathetic an attempt at thumbing your nose at someone as changing the name of a pastry.


Edit: Spelling. Oops!

the cabbage and hot dogs were a WW2 thing... they were sourcrout and frankfuters before that.. or something like that...


Point is that its nothing new, and I suspect its just a way to blow smoke at the general populace to further discourage them from thinking about what is really going on.


Which right about this time is an utter mystery to me.

The hot dog I can kind of understand (though not entirely), but cabbage isn't sauerkraut. Sauerkraut is made FROM cabbage.

Off topic. It was still sauergraut, but they couldnt call it by a german name with ww2 raging on and all.. so they called it liberty cabbage...

Either way, the stuff is seriously foul and one would have to have serious emotional issues to even think about eating it.

YZF:
WTF?

Funny thing they changed frankfurters (SP?) to hotdogs cause of WWII but still today on our MRE's (Meals Ready to Eat, to you civilian folk) they have frankfurters and beans. It's 4 hotdogs and a pack of beans with some other shit. Sick. We called them the 4 fingers of death. If you ate them in about 1/2 hour you would understand why.
