Just a thought

I am not a political animal, but after seeing countless re-runs on CNN here at work about the current Danish Cartoon saga, a certain thought struck me. Various Islamic groups around the world are calling for a mass boycott of Danish products. I would have thought that this would be highly unsuccessful considering that probably the biggest exports from Denmark are Beer and Bacon.

These products are not exactly big sellers in the Islamic world.

Ha! Good thinking there!

Well done for spotting the deliberate mistake on my blog, of course I knew it was Gorse and not Hawthorn (like heck I did!)

Cheers

I say they should boycott the US and Britain for waging this war in Iraq for NOTHING, but oil and war profiteering. (I am so politically-minded, but I try very hard to keep it out of my blog so as not to bore people)

I have drawn a hilarious cartoon of a drunk prophet Muhammed doing unspeakable things to a pig. It is very satirical if you think about it. Does anybody know of a good literary agent? I think this would go down really well in the current political climate.

Ruth - I know I do :)

Karen - I enjoyed visiting your site, and I will do again. :)

James - I gave up on politics many years ago :)

Capgras - I heard you had the bird flu! :)

Christina - I don't hear that everyday! - come to think of it I'm never told that! :)

Lillian - I'm surprised the media have not worked this one out. :)

Ha! Great point. Beer and bacon are more valuable exports than oil in my opinion.
