Yeah, I thought this was an April Fools joke too. Sadly, it's not.

Even more sad is the fact that Lego bowed to the pressure. :mad: Way to feed the enemy. They must think America is full of pushovers.

Truth. Hurts.

'Boo hoo, it makes us look like terrorists.....'

Ahh, no, you're religious fanatics do that. Toys, do not.

It must be a very LONG day if you are an angry Mustaffa- every where you look there is something fundamentally pissing you off and sending you on yet another endless Jihad. Given enough time, these guys are going to wear themselves out with the stress. ;)

Paulie,

That's doubtful. If they were going to wear themselves out waging jihad on everything that pisses them off they'd of done so thousands of years ago when the wind blowing across the desert sands the wrong way started all of this.

"Wind comes out of east when it had come out of west for past decade!! Sand now rolls over my goats the other way!!Our kohran says wind must always come from east. I declare holy war of jihad on sand and wind for pissing me off!!!"

I mean it's honestly hard to take these people seriously. They cry they are offended over everything.

I seem to recall a decade or more ago when a major tire manufacturer had to pull their very latest line of new tires completely from the market because the tire tread pattern was somehow insulting the Moslems.

I'd love to see some documentation on that one. Me thinks something else just to keep the pot stirred??? :(Lego's main branch is in Austria I think & they have outlets??? in 130 other countries--They don't want to piss anybody off--it's just smart business to them, not a damn thing to do with us.

OK, upon researching it, it wasn't quite as huge as I had remembered it, but:

The Yokohama Rubber Company was forced to withdraw hundreds of tires from the sultanate of Brunei when Islamic authorities compalined that the tread design resembled the word for ALLAH.

Political correctness in the media is the butt kiss. The bottom line is we have been killing their touchy asses for 10 years-and continue to do
so. Let them read the papers, keeps them standing still long enough for the drone to draw a bead on'm :lol:

Thanks for the good reviews Fred, & then you all wonder why everyone can't get along. :roll: Like I always say it must be hell to live in an imperfect world.
As for the tire thing, where were the tires in question made & for that matter even if made in the U.S. & even if the Gov. had anything to do with it just who was in office then?

You'll notice I said hard core---fanaticism & half facts on either side of the aisle SUX--and that in my thoughts is where the problem lies---
