A common what? Oh, yeah, right. A common name. For those who don't speak Spanish they may not realize that "hey - sus" is spelled "Jesus." I think the problem is Islam has no sense of humor and needs to get one. Here's a few cute ones from another forum that I thought were worth passing along:

Quote:
This little boy asked his mom "Is God a man or a woman?" and his mom answered "well, God is kind of both." Then the kid asked "is God black or white?" and his mom replied "well, kind of both". Then the kid thought for a minute and then asked "Mommy, is Michael Jackson God?"
----------------------

Quote:
At sunday school a teacher asked her students "where is Jesus?" and a little boy replied "At my house in the bathroom". The teacher was puzzled and asked him why he would say that. The boy replied "Every time i go in there my dad bangs on the door and says 'JESUS CHRIST U STILL IN THERE?'"

All we need now is for some Sudanese to name their plushy "Teddy."

It's happened already with Christianity - hence the hymn "Gladly, my cross-eyed bear".

Have y'all heard? There's a new line of teddy bears called CAIR Bears.

(Link is safe for work as long work isn't in a mosque. Or Sudan. Or anywhere else chronically furious Muslims abound.)

Sharia Bear is a slut! Look at those ears sticking pertly up in mockery of the prophet! Fetch the lash!
