    Then Mo’s Christist bedmate will be turning in Mohammed for having a negative reaction that is clearly Christophobia. As the world of Incompatiblesuperstition turns….

  5. He has the cops on speed-dial, right?

    Ms. Benson, in movies and TV programmes from the USofA, characters are often given the phrase “gee-ess-dubbeh-yoo” to say during time-critical or emergency situations. I have always wondered why? Apart from the cachet of it being a “police jargon” thing, and so consolidating the expert, macho and super-heroic bona fides of the characters, it is an idiotic contraction. “Gun shot wound” is shorter, faster, easier to say, easier to remember and needs absolutely no translation from the cant by the listeners. “G.S.W.” is, in short, no shorter and actually longer. When time and clarity are critical, it makes no sense.

    But it is America and Hollywood so making sense is probably never to be expected.

    My reason for mentioning this is that it is exactly analogous to having, in UKland, the cops on speed-dial. Remembering and dialling “999” is far easier than remembering “999”, remembering that you speed-dialled it up on that phone, remembering the code for that particular speed dialling and tapping in that code. Even though the human (or, in the case of politicians and the religious, humanoid) brain doesn’t seem to work in terms of processing power and memory buses it is certainly much more work to speed-dial a memorable three-digit number than to just dial that number.

    In brief, having the cops on speed-dial is moronic and the act of a poltroon.

    So, you are probably correct. It’s the sort of thing a “Mo'” would do.

  7. SmallVoice says:

    Mr. Iscariot, grassing up your buddy for a “hate-crime” can not, per se, be a hate crime as it is part of the society’s systems set up to balance out injuries and harms done to its members by criminals.

    It is the logical equivalent, though far lesser, of executing a mass-murderer. Those who kill the criminal in that case are not themselves counted as criminals but as agents of the forces of Order and perhaps Good.

    Mo’, too, would be such an agent in this case.

    Mo’ would be a “GoodGuy”, a White Hat, one of the Legion of Light and Reason defending the innocent and vulnerable against the evil Army of Darkness.

    Mo’ would, in effect, be on “our side”.

  8. Troubleshooter says:

    Gee, Mo, is this really a hate-crime or is this you being a whiny little [expletive-deleted!] because someone said something to upset you? How about growing a pair … and maybe a thicker skin to go along with!
