I can only laud the decision of the wise Sudanese court of Justice & Flogging For All, upholding respect for the Islamic faith in the face of smug British teachers:
KHARTOUM, Sudan — Sudan on Wednesday charged a British teacher with insulting religion and inciting hatred, a crime punishable by up to 40 lashes, six months in prison or a fine, after she named a class teddy bear "Muhammad."
Outrageous it is indeed. Everybody should know how inappropriate it is to name a teddy bear Muhammad. Many deserve to be named Muhammad, for Muhammad is a very handy name indeed, with many M's in it, making the spelling of Muhammad much easier to remember for the orthographically challenged. A man can be named Muhammad, a boy can be named Muhammad, a baby can be named Muhammad, and verily many are named Muhammad nowadays, or Mohamed which is the same really, only with a bit less M's in it.
But a teddy bear is the worst possible choice, whenever one needs to name a mascot Muhammad.
Now, if only I could get someone at Toys 'r Us interested, I'm sure this could make a killing this season.
