The Most “Offensive” Web Animation Ever? Syeten is Profiting from the Prophet

The Most “Offensive” Web Animation Ever? Syeten is Profiting from the Prophet

This online animation series is hilarious!

But a serious point first:

Some of you will need to be careful though (depending on your background, e.g. nationality), and not share it on social media.

This funny web series on the early days of the Quran and of Islam is potentially even more ‘offensive’ to blasphemy kooks than anything Charlie Hebdo ever did. Continue Reading

Chelsea Man Evicted from Theatre for Testicle Altercation

Chelsea Man Evicted from Theatre for Testicle Altercation

Theatre goer Ivor Ball has been evicted from The Old Vic Theatre in London, after his testicles started fighting during the play ‘A Shakespeare Tragedy.’

Mr. Ball 42, commented:

Regrettably, a disturbance was prompted, as a consequence of a rare medical condition I am blighted with called testicleitis. This occurs when two testicles argue their differences to the point of physical conflict.

It’s similar to rival twins in their endeavour to establish a singular identity and hierarchy.

A bicycle seat partition intervention is the only remedy to ensure the balls co-exist harmoniously, but I wasn’t allowed to take my cycle into the theatre.

THE TESTICLE INCIDENT

“To be or not to be: that is the question. Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” – ‘Oi! shove over fatty bollock – there’s room in the sack for two!’ (testicle one).

“Or to take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them” – ‘shut your face shrivelled walnut bollock! Ouch! I’m entitled to half an inch of gap too!’ (testicle two).

“To die: to sleep no more and by a sleep to say we end the heartache” – ‘Push off lumpy! – just because you hang higher in the ball sack, it doesn’t give you special status!’ (testicle one).

“And the thousand natural shocks, that flesh to heir to, this consummation – devoutly to be wished” – ‘Piss off baldy! I’ve got more hair! Ouch! Aaaagh!’ (testicle two).

“To sleep: perchance to dream: ay there’s the rub; for in that sleep of death” – ‘So what hairy? I produce more sperm! Ouch! Get off!’ (testicle one).

Mr. Ball has been issued with a lifetime ban from The Old Vic. His testicles were unavailable for comment.

Theresa May Resigns, Becomes Guardian Editor

Theresa May Resigns, Becomes Guardian Editor

Conservative Party leader Theresa May is tired of endless harassment from voters and grubby hard-right red-top hacks (like George Osborne of the Evening Standard). So, she has decided her career in politics is no longer a worthwhile pursuit.

Notable left-wing establishment broadsheet The Guardian is known for its uniquely conservative form of liberal and social democratic politics. Continue Reading

Glastonbury Hosts Diversity ‘Jihad Rock’ Festival

Glastonbury Hosts Diversity ‘Jihad Rock’ Festival

Music festivals in the UK are not normally considered as being at the forefront of radical social activism. The days of Woodstock and anti-Vietnam protests being long gone, you’re more likely to see 21 century festival schmucks fighting over the last condom than the last polar bear.

And blowing chunks over your bedding is normally more of a problem than blowing chunks out of Iraqi orphans.

However, with various left wing and right populist eruptions occurring all over Europe and North America, it seems that music festivals are returning to their roots as a key focus of radical social critique and activism.

Right now, it seems that Glastonbury are trying to be a lot more socially conscious before.

Now in the name of celebrating diversity, the first Jihad Rock festival is about to take place soon.

A rival to the main Glastonbury festival, the Jihad Rock festival features plenty of booms and crashes, some great pyrotechnics on stage, and some superficially tough and sharp-edged 80s bears prancing around in flashy cloaks.

The Guardian has expressed reservations about the (potentially/arguably/’problematically’) homophobic and misogynistic implications of the festival, but generously notes:

On a sliding scale, this is probably a lesser evil than having hoodie-wearing, drunken working class Nazi thugs doing one of those horrid, crass and vulgar ska festivals of theirs. At least this way, there will be less risk of cultural appropriation.

Their opposite numbers in the Sun, true to form, are outraged.

This is disgusting! We can’t even celebrate our indigenous radical conservative customs in our own country!

Theresa May is currently confused as to which side to condemn first.
