No Matter How Bad Your Day Was…

…It Wasn’t This Bad

Schoolteacher Bears Brunt of Religious Backlash

A British teacher in Sudan has been arrested – for allowing the class of children to name their class teddy bear Muhammad. Several teachers complained and the teacher was arrested on charges of insulting the prophet of Islam. The children picked several names and voted on them, and 20 of 23 children selected the name Muhammad, so clearly it was entirely her fault for instigating the insulting name choice.


“The BBC has learned the charge could lead to six months in jail, 40 lashes or a fine.”

Well, after all, we wouldn’t want her punishment not to fit the crime. That would be just silly, unreasonable, and maybe even a little insane.
