Bloviating Zeppelin: The British ARE Insane!

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The British ARE Insane!

A "Muslim Fun Day" in a UK theme park?

Surely this must be a joke -- except it isn't.

From Reuters:
LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's biggest theme park has called off the country's first "National Muslim Fun Day" because of lack of interest, the park said Wednesday.

Alton Towers in central England was to open on September 17 for Muslims -- with halal food, a strict dress code and prayer areas.

Music, gambling and alcohol were to be banned for the day and theme park rides such as "Ripsaw," "Corkscrew" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" all segregated by sex.

But the park said the event's organizers, Islamic Leisure, who rented the park for the day and were marketing the event, had called it off due to "insufficient ticket sales."

"Alton Towers is disappointed that the planned Family Fun Day Sunday 17th September has had to be canceled," the park said in a statement. A park spokeswoman said Islamic Leisure would refund those who bought tickets.
Excuse me for being redundant and simplistic but: are you friggin' kidding me?!
What in the heck do you think would happen if a theme park held a "Fun Day For Jews," a "Picnic With Pentacostals," or a "Christians Only Fun Day" anywhere on the face of this planet?
And this theme park would have carried out the plan had they found sufficient ticket sales!
Would anyone besides me care to call this "catering" or "pandering" on a veritable foundation of fear? Or would you just clasp my shoulders and say: "BZ old man, you should be more inclusive!"

Yep... I join you in calling it "catering" and "pandering" too, BZ! Dang!

You know, I have a liberal who goes by BB-Nevada who'se shown up on my last two posts. On my last one he said I'm probably not really as mean as my posts sound. ROTFALMAO! I wish he would visit you, bless your conservative heart!

For that matter, wish he would visit Ab too. :)

ABF: do me a favor, dude: hand me my dishdasha and kufi, willya? I want to hit the theme park before it closes!


I get no cretins to my site; I don't know why. I've never had the problems I read about everyone else having -- not that I'm bitching, mind you.

I'm not sure what is more shocking.
Is it that muslims have fun, or that the british have fun?
