Re: You cannot make this stuff up

Andy, re nixing The Three Little Pigs. There’s no sura about Piglet or Babe. The Koran, a very exhaustive text, is silent on the matter of anthropomorphized porcine representation. But what all these you-can’t-make-it-up stories have in common is an excessive deference to Islam – just in case. In small but telling ways, Britain’s non-Muslim community is taking it for granted that a kind of uber-Islamic law now applies to all.

Why wait for the wolf when your own side is so eager to blow its own house down? As the great Porky Pig so sagely observed: “That’s all, folks!”
