Iran Renames Danish Pastries and More On Pastry Wars

Iran has decided to rename Danish pastries "Mohammedan" pastry - a new twist in the crisis which has triggered protest by Muslims throughout the world against cartoons of Mohammed first published in Denmark. The name change recalls when some Americans started calling French fries, "Freedom fries" to protest France's opposition to the United States-led invasion of Iraq.

Iran has recalled its ambassador from Copenhagen, and on Tuesday announced a halt to all imports of Danish products. Demonstrators in Tehran on Tuesday attacked the Danish embassy with stones and petrol bombs, the second such assault in two days.

Hot cross buns too offensive for school

A school in the United Kingdom has banned traditional hot cross buns for fear the religious symbol drawn on the top of each roll might offend some students.

Hot cross buns are normally served during the Easter season, especially on Good Friday. Without the white cross drawn with icing, the treat is just a plain currant bun.

Wild Thing's comment......
Of course, the "mohammedan" pastries immediately slaughtered the "hot cross buns"!
Will these be next?

Great pic of your Tabby, WT. Our old guy, Angus, departed this mortal coil last December, with the dignity and grace you expect of an old feline. Miss him a lot. He looked a lot like yours.

I am so sorry about your Angus. I love that name.
It is hard to say goodbye to a famiy member and that is what they all are.
The photo of the kitty is one I found on the internet, but like you said too about yours, this photo looks so much like a kitty I had once named Bailey. We always have a dog and a cat. Right now our kitty is a black and white.

Thank you for telling me about Agnus that means a lot to me.
