Crude Humor!!!

Bakeries around Tehran have renamed Danish pastries "Roses of the Prophet Mohammed" after the latest uproar concerning the Iranians lack of humor and constraint... oh yeah, and concerning the cartoon flap. The renaming of food items seems to be the weapon of choice these days similar to the "French & Freedom Fries" War of 2003. I personally don't get how people can get so worked up they actually change the names of products but what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Instead of OPEC oil, let's come up with an alternative name.

  • Water flotation solution
  • New Jersey Juice
  • Arabian Hair Tonic
  • The ooze of a thousand camels
  • Funky Cold Medina
  • Saladin Sauce
  • Hugo Chavez is a Slimy Snake (not an alternative name just an observation)
  • Future Greenhouse Gases
  • Petroleum (too familiar)
  • Crankcase Marinade

If my DOUI mates want to get in on the renaming they can feel welcome. We shall fight ineffective fire with ineffective fire.
