Heads will roll for this, literally. Just wait till the muslimes start on a rampage.

This reminds me when I was in college and worked as an Asst. Manager at Hardees. Some guy called in complaining about a messed up order (pickles on his burger or some such thing) and threatened to have his union picket the store.

One thing I learned while working there is to never underestimate how stupid some people can be.
2005-09-19 11:20:35 AM  
What an ass. He should be declaring jihad on Burger King for more justifiable reasons, such as their food being shiat.
2005-09-19 11:21:21 AM  
Whatever happened to people resolving situations like this by not buying the product in question? Or was that mofo simply invoking the j-word because it made him feel tough?

Okay, so because their script is made up of swirls and squiggles, our decorative commercial art swirls and squiggles look like words in Arabic.

Do the decorative designs in Arab commercial art look like letters?

Just wondering.
2005-09-19 11:22:52 AM  

Before I flush my next poop, I'll consult all Muslim groups to ensure it doesn't offend Allah. If it does, I will stir it until it is not offensive.

Just wipe with your left hand and I think you'll be ok.

I know religious people seem to go for the whole Divine Image Appearing Randomly All Over The Bloody Place type thing, but what we have here is the equivalent of looking for a fight: not only have they made the word for god about as simple a scrawl as possible (but then the whole alphabet appears to be composed of u's, l's and n's) but then they get angry when people make something similar to it. At least they didn't make the arabic for allah resemble a full stop, though....

HAHAHAHA... hahahaha... oh, baby jebus, haha.

This is so funny... surely this is an Onion story? Can we lock the fundamentalists up with Big Business and let them destroy each other while the productive 70% of the world carries on with business?

A pox on all your gods, whether their name looks like "Ice Cream" or not. Religion is just a disease and it's moments like these that show how damaged the religious mind can get.

I see no need to avoid offending the mentally ill. Pity, yes, and even respect for their ability to function with such a load of viral insanity filling their brains. But a sicko is a sicko, wherever he comes from or spells her name, and so all I can say is...

...HAHAHAHA... hahahaha... oh, baby jebus, haha. God Is An Ice Cream!!

Ahh that wonderful, tolerant and peaceful religion of Islam.
Sure the fark looked like an ice cream come icon to me!

If I were Burger King, I'd keep the stupid symbol and come out with a bacon-flavored sunday. Mmmmm.... Bacon.
2005-09-19 11:26:34 AM  
Does dirka dirka really mean anything in arabic? I thought it was just a nonsense phrase made up by the South Park guys to mock the arabic language.

I know "jihad" and "muhammed" are real words.
2005-09-19 11:26:35 AM  
Was the ice cream flavor Jamoca Allah Fudge?
2005-09-19 11:26:42 AM  
You know, I don't remember Christians threatening a "Jihad" over Mapplethorpes "Piss Christ" piece, and that was a picture of Jesus on the Cross submerged in a jar of piss. This is a stretch at best.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

These guys have run out of valid things to act on, so now they grasp onto little bullshiat distraction issues. Much like our legislature, they've outlived their usefulness.
2005-09-19 11:28:33 AM  
This thread is useless without pics: one of the actual lid and one of the symbol it's suggested it resembles.

2005-09-19 11:29:41 AM  
Ok, sure, it looks kinda like the word for Allah. But so do the random scribbles I draw in the corners of my notebook in class. It's hard for something curved NOT to look like Arabic writing. Besides, since Islam forbids depiction of people in art, decorating with writing is common over there.

And then, the nut says "no! I'm not going to be satisfied that they are changing it, it's my jihad!"

Sounds like somemoran is just out to find a jihad, and too much of a coward to go join a real jihadist group.

/not that I approve of jihadist groups

So Burger King just grabs their ankles is response to this ONE muslim? If he's so sensitive, maybe it's time he re-located back to some desert for dessert.
2005-09-19 11:29:58 AM  
Any vaguely-Arabic-looking squiggle is probably an actual Arabic word.

I went to a highschool in Ontario that was about 15% muslim. My favorite way of passing the time in boring classes was to make military-themed doodles in the margins of my notebook. I remember one time I made this sketch of an Arab being interrogated by an Israeli soldier. I thought it looked pretty good, as far as doodles go. I made a speech bubble over the head of the Arab and filled it with some random squiggles that I thought looked like Arabic. The guy sitting next to me, who was of Lebanese descent, wanted to see what I was working on. I showed it to him. I thought he'd be mad, but the first thing he said to me was, "dude! I didn't know you could do Arabic calligraphy!" he was totally serious. Apparently my random squiggle looked exactly like the Arabic words for "Egypt is a beautiful country". He even sounded it out for me. Each of my random penstrokes turned out to be an Arabic letter.

Whoah. This pointless anecdote turned out a lot longer than I thought it would.

THE fast-food chain, Burger King, is withdrawing its ice-cream cones after the lid of the dessert offended a Muslim.

Why do companies kowtow to the whims of a few overly-sensitive idiots?
2005-09-19 11:30:54 AM  
You know what, fark all this bullshiat.
fark allthis bullshiat.

I call a farking Jihad on Islam.

They can call Jihads? I can call Jihads.

Stop being assholes. Stop ruining my fun. Stop being opressive. Stop being assholes.

You can fly a plane into buildings? I'll fly a plane into mud huts or whatever your barbaric people live in.

You call Jihads on Burger King? I'll call Jihads on Mutton Messiah or whatever you farkers have.

You make women cover their faces in your countries cause it's a sin?
I'll start my own country and MAKE women flash they's titties at me or they get executed.

Yeah, how you like that? How you like that!?!?!?!!

I'm gonna eat a few pounds of bacon, then vomit it all over your disgusting ass! Then we'll see who goes to paradise and has sex with 678 virgins.

How you like them apples Mohammed?

2005-09-19 11:31:09 AM  
ok..screw political correctness. These freaks scream jihad (religious war) on anything and everything.

Maybe we should play their game with them. Just say "Oh, you declare a religious war on us? OK."
Then whip their asses so bad they are no longer the feature story on CNN everyday.

We could go back to like it was 20 years ago when the only time you heard about these towel-headed creeps was if you landed on a National Geographic documentary when channel surfing.

Worshipping prophets. How farking stupid.
Did Allah foretell the coming of the heathenistic ice cream cones in his "teachings" No? Why not?

Way to cave BK, remember world we don't dare do anything that a muslime might get offened by. And we all can be sure that in Muslime countires people of other faiths are shown equal respect. They all get their throats slit just like anyone else who doesn't agree with pedophile prophet and the moon god.

SherKhan First, I am offended by anyone who considers Pollock an artist. If my daughter can do it, it ain't art. Same with most "modern" art, even Picasso's stuff. On the other hand, Dali's melting clocks are cool.

Second, I am offended that Buger King exists. Who made them King? Its not like they were elected. They can't just go around calling themselves King because they feel like it. Sure, maybe some watery tart gave them a sword, but they aren't my king.

Finally, if you are going to protest something at BK, it should not be the imitation ice cream. Their flame broiled ground butt-steak burgers are the worst evar!

Heck, what are ya gonna do but call for yet another Great Big Mother of All Jihads when you find out Allah has been appropriated by the Burger King? The major conflict between Muslims and the western world is that we steam roll over their culture with commercial rubbish and not a care, as well as not giving a crap that most of 'em are stuck in poverty-stricken deserts. Let's face it, Muslims are a pissed off bunch, looking for anything to incite themselves against the Evil West.

A real quick message for anybody that is offended by a ice cream cone lid:

What, are the muslims having a contest to see who can create the stupidist jihad? This guy must have just made the top 5.

If they can initiate a jihad over a design on a lid they can initiate one over anything.

By the way, what's an ice cream cone lid anyway? I guess I don't eat at BK often enough to know.
