  1. If only someone had scooped out Mohammad’s brains with a large serving spoon way back when. Imagine the trouble we’d all have been saved.

  2. The Vatican has just said, through the Osservatore Romano, that Halloween is a satanic custom and should be avoided (at least in Europe, presumably). I agree.

    When strolling through my local market yesterday, I was hailed by a sales girl who asked me “whether I had my pumpkin yet”. “My pumpkin”, I asked ?

    Fortunately, she was pretty, so she escaped my rant about the Pope’s instructions.

    Anyway, her pumpkin wasn’t carved out in the above fashion, far from it. Many vegetable stalls on Paris markets are owned by Muslims.

    Where I used to live before, they even had small Palestinian flags during the last Israel-Gaza war. And some of their women were veiled. Needless to say, I bought my leeks from another place.
