Iran Renames Danish Pastries
Oh oh, this is serious.
Iranians love Danish pastries, but when they look for the flaky dessert at the bakery they now have to ask for "Roses of the Prophet Muhammad."
You are infidel, but your pastries are too good for us to pass up for the sake of Allah. I mean, praise be Allah and all that crap, but these things are better than the 72 white raisins I am going to get in heaven.
"Given the insults by Danish newspapers against the prophet, as of now the name of Danish pastries will give way to 'Rose of Muhammad' pastries," the union said in its order.
Yeah! What's up now infidel?
"This is a punishment for those who started misusing freedom of expression to insult the sanctities of Islam," said Ahmad Mahmoudi, a cake shop owner in northern Tehran.
Not that you would know what freedom of expression is, never having it and all...
Some customers took immediately to the new name. But others were less enthusiastic about the protest. "I just want the sweet pastries. I have nothing to do with the name," homemaker Zohreh Masoumi told the sales clerk taking her order.
Calling all black turbans, we have a 213 in progress...
