    As Arabic script just looks like scribbling (to me, anyway!), how would you know if someone had scribbled all over a copy of the Koran?

  2. Donn says:

    If you hold a glass of something you shouldn’t be drinking, with the hand you shouldn’t be using to drink it with, does that cancel out?

    Anyway, you have to read it in Arabic. They should burn people alive for translating it, like Thomas “Man for all seasons” More used to do for the Latin bible.

  3. Son of Glenner says:

    Donn: So, it’s OK to burn an English (or Swedish, etc) translation of the Koran, although it’s an offence punishable by death to burn a copy of the original Arabic Koran?

  4. Donn says:

    So, people who boil crabs alive ought to have their eyebrows forcibly plucked out?

  5. Son of Glenner says:

    Donn: As someone who does not eat crabs or any other kind of animal, cooked or raw, I don’t understand the relevance of your comment. I also don’t eat copies of the Koran, cooked or raw, either orginal or in translation.

  6. Donn says:

    We’re square, then – I didn’t understand the relevance of your question.

    We had lunch with a couple vegans yesterday, and surprised by the restaurant crowds due to the wretched Bodily Assumption into Heaven of Everyone’s Favorite Mom, we were turned away from the restaurant where they knew they could find something tolerable. Where we ended up, there was nothing for them but boiled carrots and broccoli, and some potatoes after they specifically asked. I think the broccoli had been boiled in advance for the lunch crowd, then re-boiled before serving, and then duly allowed to cool. We had fish, but we made sure to eat all our vegetables just to be fair, and I paid, so at least they got their mushy broccoli for free. Anyway, I imagine they’d be firmly opposed to boiling crabs alive, and willing to eat some pretty awful things to back it up. I believe some countries have taken a stand against this hideous practice.

  7. Son of Glenner says:

    Donn: Potatoes, Carrots and Broccoli – add some curry sauce and rice, a poppadom, and you have an acceptable if very basic vegan dish. I had something very similar just yesterday evening. Non-vegans were having much the same with bits of chicken added. There was not a crab in sight!

  8. Wee Jim says:

    Has anyone checked if any of the books being burned were actual korans, or id this a case where it’s the thought – or belief – that counts?

  9. Donn says:

    A burned Koran is essentially little different from ashes produced by burning any book.

    I’m probably confused because there’s some current event I missed out on, that explains why you all want to talk about burning books.

    For all I know, the restaurant our friends tried to get us into would have served us those vegetables with a tasty sauce. I would have made something a bit similar this evening, but the lady of the house has an amino acid “protein” fetish that requires either leguminous complements or animal protein, and I forgot we didn’t have any tofu, so i pulled a squid tentacle from my reserve in the freezer and added an egg. No carrots though, as I don’t really care much for them. And plenty of rice, for my grain fetish.

  10. paradoctor says:

    I’m against burning any books, crappy or not. When they burn books, then next they’ll burn people.

  11. Son of Glenner says:

    Donn: Legumes, grains, vegetables, some fruit, basic ingedients for a healthy diet. Books not necessary – except maybe recipe books! Despite the name, Readers’ Digest counts as book, not food.

    Under the influence of Max Reger it’s best to keep them to the smallest room of the house…

  13. M27Holts says:

    I had a bite of a vegan bratwurst last xmas. It tasted nothing like the proper bratwurst I had in my other paw, in fact it tasted like dried granny-knicker gusset, and smelt like it too…Vegans can all fook off…

  14. M27Holts says:

    Aye. The problem with muslims, they are all for burning every book except the shitty koran. Some books are more worthy of not wasting paper to print them, the bible and koran are top of that list…

  15. M27Holts says:

    Vegan cook-books as well…

  16. Donn says:

    Would atheists go to Imitation Church for Atheists on Sundays? No. Why would vegans eat Imitation Meat Sausage for Vegans? You have found out that this is not a good idea, as it seems to me you might have known.

  17. Son of Glenner says:

    Donn: I agree with you – it’s not a good idea for vegans to eat vegan imitations of meat. The aforementioned legumes, grains, vegetables and fruit, maybe flavoured with seeds or herbs, can make very enjoyable foods in their own right, not even trying to taste like meat or other animal products. If an imitation “meat” product tasted like real meat, a committed vegan would probably find it quite off-putting!

  18. Shaughn says:

    Stop the herbicide on grass – eat a cow.

    By the way – all burned korans are just paper doubles (just like our boys Jesus and Mo are body doubles) so why bother?

  19. M27Holts says:

    As a committed omnivore, I eat an apple (whole) a kiwi fruit (whole) and prunes and apricots with my 3 weetabix and milk for breakie every day…oh and a banana…I like bananas…

  20. Donn says:

    A food critic who eats weetabix? Something doesn’t add up.

  21. jb says:

    I have a friend who is a vegetarian (not vegan though). She is emphatic that she has no interest in fake vegetarian meat, even — in fact especially! — if it tastes like real meat. She claims not to like the taste of meat (although given how many years it’s been I’m not sure how she can be so sure), but in any case she thinks it is totally contrary to the spirit of the thing.

  22. M27Holts says:

    Me a food critic? Eh? I eat everything and anything, I am definately not a food snob. I like weetabix, shredded wheat, porridge, all-bran, I think pretentious foodies are as stupid as wine snobs….why drink wine when you can supp ale? Pretentious toss-pots thats who. And yes, I have tried all.kinds of wine, including ludicrously expensive french wine? And I just prefer beer…and beer id best consumed with flesh-based foods…I love garlic biltong…perfect with any ale…

  23. M27Holts says:

    Here in blighty, we have a nurse convicted of 7 counts of murdering babies…Her friends insist she is a victim of circumstance and innocent! Like all brainless numpties, they insist on ignoring the balance of probabilities and the stark evidence that the babies didn’t die without an external agent, and the only nurse present for all 25 episodes of unusual medical complications was their friend…Unfortunately he friends are typical faith monkeys…with their hands over their ears shouting “ner ner ner…”…ignorant morons…

  24. M27Holts says:

    Richard, I would imagine that your reference to the fine composer of organ works would go unheeded without the aid of google….Church organ is my fifth favorite instrument, after leccy guitar, synthesizer, piano and mellotron….
