There is no need.  By the way, would that be from the take-away fish and chips place near Tower Records in Piccadilly Circus?

My tolerance of revolutionary politics has a very narrow margin:  it begins with the American Declaration of Independence and ends with the  Constitutional Convention.

I once saw this written on a university wall.

Q. How many Muslims does it take to change a light bulb?

A. None, they'd rather sit in the dark and blame the Jews!


Brilliant!

Even though, on some level, and to some, it might be considered not only funny but also brilliant political commentary, I thought that joke was, like, totally lame, Rezz.  But it reminded me of this, my new aphorism:

Point 1: It is a little annoying that you make fun of Muslims.

Point 2: The statement is not correct, either. Personally, I would blame the secular State of Turkey instead of the Jews. :P

You have to admit, that however 'annoying' the joke was, it does ring true. Totally true!*

Isn't about time you took the chip off your shoulders and learned to laugh at some of the more ridiculous aspects of your community?

The British do it. The Jews do it brilliantly!

Isn't it time to lose the 'victim mentality'? Who knows, where it may lead...

*Now try the joke inserting the "secular state of Turkey" instead of "Jews". See? Not funny. Because it doesn't "ring true". Geddit?

Humour (or lack of it) is a personal thing.

I've repeated the joke to many Muslims who have laughed because it was "brilliant political commentary".

It is said that the ability of a community to laugh at itself is an indication of its confidence.

Wouldn't you agree?

And isn't the whole point of "free speech" having the freedom not to be "agreeable"?
