Insulting religion (comp)
The BBC reports that Gillian Gibbons has been sentenced to 15 days in prison for “insulting religion”. The religion in question which has so exercised the slow-witted mullahs of Sudan is known as “Islam”, a 7th century personality cult invented by an illiterate camel trader with a penchant for warfare and pre-pubescent girls. Think L Ron Hubbard in a tent.
For the duration of Gillian Gibbons’ incarceration we are holding an Insult Religion Competition in the comments. We’ll start the ball rolling: Islam, you scurvy dog! You are not fit to pick the winnets from a poodle’s arse.
Go on. Get it off your chest…
UPDATE: A prize, you say? Why, yes indeed. For once there shall be an actual, empirically verifiable prize for the winner of this comp. Leave it with me. I’ll get back to you. It will be worth winning.
PRIZE! The winner of this competition will receive a “presentation pack” of the Royal Mail’s Christmas 2005 series of stamps, designed by Irene Von Treskow. There are six stamps altogether, the most famous being the Hindu Madonna and Child which provoked history’s first known case of Stamp Rage. They are not worth much at the moment, but you won’t find them in the shops. Pressure from Hindu groups led to the Royal Mail cancelling the print run in November 2005.
Entries will be judged on wit and originality. Obscenity is acceptable, but if it is gratuitous, it does not stand a chance (I’m looking at you, Gareth).
