Allah in an ice cream cone


Burger King is recalling its ice cream cones in Britain because apparently the labeling resembles the word 'Allah' in Arabic. Burger King has apologized, saying "The design simply represents a spinning ice-cream cone." But one Rashad Akhtar, of High Wycombe (well, there's your problem, for starts), replied, "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." Read this, too.

Remember when Nike made shoes that had a flame on the back, and they pulled them because people complained that the flame spelled Allah in arabic?

When I was in Turkey people tried to convince me that Coca Cola spelled in cursive really spelled "No Mohammed, No Mecca" in Arabic. I couldn't believe how convinced they were that Jews owned Coca Cola and this was part of a nefarious plan to eradicate Islam.

Next time I see Jesus in my ice cream I'm gonna raise hell.

When, in fact, Coca-Cola refused to divest in it's German bottling operations during the Holocaust and instead had its plant making alternative soda (Fanta) while they were unable to receive Coke's syrup. Coca-Cola later reabsorbed the wayward bottler they had lost touch with during the war.

It isn't an urban legend. Coke doesn't care about the jewwwwwws =( *sniffle*
