Muslim Freaks Over BK Ice Cream Cone Cover

burg20905.jpg

In the everything-looks-like-something-else and the over-sensitivity department, Muslim Rashad Akhtar claimed the design on the covers of Burger King ice cream cones resemble the Arabic inscription for Allah and finds it sacrilegious. Yes, an innocuous ice cream cone cover is sacrilegious. What's next? Will someone claim those signs with squiggly arrows that indicate curves in the road ahead resemble a devil serpent and cause their removal country-wide?

Wait, you don't read the world-known and highly renowned PICKLED POLITICS on a daily basis? And here I thought AdRants was a reputable blog.

He's going to be really pissed when he sees how you spelled "Allah." Infidel!

You fools - it is a well known fact that Allah does not like ice cream. That is why I request large quantities of Doritos from my American captors.

Funny lot, those Muslims...if only they would learn to relax then the world would be a whole of a lot better place...

indeed guys, we need to relax a little bit ... just let those christians screw everything in the world .. after all, it's pretty harsh to learn that all along their so-called-god jesus christ was a fake and moslems have the real One ..

There's a brain phenomenon called matrixing where the brain tries to make sense out of senseless shapes by making you think you see something familliar. It's the same phenomenon that cause people to think the Virgin Mary is appearing to them from a rust stain on their shed.

Another brilliant marketing move by CPB.

Yum.

First of all - there was a comment about Muslims need to relax and if they did they the whole world would be a better place. First off if your refering to terrorism - those guys are not Muslims. The religion states - Just like all the others - you must respect others...blah blah blah..so lets just get that cleared!

Second...God/Allah's name or title should not be mocked in such a way - He is the Ultimate 'Power' so lets just respect Him. His name should not be paraded like some sort of....Icecream!

lol

Allah give all peoples the live & he can take it in less micro second you must respect him if you canít to be his sleeve be pilot with him so you will return to him after your death and his majesty ask you & all the peoples about all things get on and done and you did the dirty thing (that you wrote his name on ice cream con) but if you say sorry for Allah from your heart and you will never back again he will forgive you - (you can imagine his merciful)

Hey guys,

I really think u should stop being so bitchy about muslims, they are not bad.
And if Bin Laden is being bad, that does not mean all Afghans are bad, or all Muslims, cos then u should say whole humanity is bad, cause he is a human as wel..though i think something seriously went bad when he became one..

And even if muslims freak out because of it, that's their problem. Why should we bother?
Just take the stupid sign away ok?
No big deal, is it..

And the person who wrote this blog or whatev should be a bit more mature and not express his opinion, if he wanted to do that he should just leave a message like the whole friggin lot of us do! (I apologize if he was a she)

and just to comment on the persons who said that if they relaxed the world be more simple or summat..you are so wrong..how much easier would it be huh? Would you be able to walk safely in irak?

WEll then you are an idiot.cos the people in their own country's don't even have a home, school or even the stupid street they chould be able to walk safely in.

Just don't say stupid stuff when you don't know anything about it and rethink your opinions before writing anything that might offend others.

Toedels,
some realistic person who just freaked you out!

I apologize if I offended peepz
