Islamic Pun a No-no

Must not make ANY jokes involving Islam -- even in Australia:

"A proposed TV commercial featuring Sam Kekovich holding a slab of meat and announcing "Is lamb" has been dropped for fear it might offend Muslims.

The idea was for Kekovich to stand over a barbecue with an Imam (Islamic religious leader) on either side of him as he grilled chops. Kekovich was to hold up a chop to the Imams and say: "Is lamb"..."


But saying and doing things that offend Christians is routine everywhere, of course. Christians are recognized as mature adults capable of handling life's adversities. Muslims are seen as children likely to throw a tantrum.
