Suspended for Satire

A senior employee of an English phone company wrote a satirical "explanation" of the words and phrases that Leftist bureaucrats and academics use. He called it the "Lefty Lexicon". It included this "definition": "Islamophobic - anyone who objects to having their transport blown up on the way to work".

Naughty, naughty! The usual Islamic hysteria ensued and he was suspended from his job. Fortunately, however, a lot of conservative English bloggers rallied to his aid and the company got a flood of emails in support of him. He now has his job back.
