Burger King Jihad

Remember a few years back when some people figured if you hold a bottle of coke up-side down and look at the label through a mirror, the text Coca-Cola appears as "La Allah"? Well, history doesn' repeat itself but sometimes events are very similar. The Scotsman reports about a new ice-cream cone at Burger King that has a lid... that either represent a spinning ice-cream cone... or Allah. Burger King is withdrawing the lids and the Muslim council is advising on the re-design. The guy who spotted the offending ice-cream cone is not happy though: "This is my JIHAD, How can you say it is a spinning swirl? If you spin it one way to the right you are offending Muslims." So he is calling for a boycott... I haven't seen the lid but I give him right in point, but not in proportions. h/t: lgf
