Quarns, you say?

So I typo'd. For the laughs down the road, I won't edit this one. I'll take the hit.
"Quarn-burning!" (now no amount of editing can save you)
Next 9-11, I am burning a Bible... man, that's a long time away, I'll do it tomorrow.
Speaking from experience, there's nothing worse than burnt Quorn.
I plan to burn a Bibble on 9-11.
Silly fundies, you can't burn a quern! They're made of stone!
If they built a quern specifically for the purpose of milling Qurans into fine powder, they'd have my vote, but only if Schwarzeneggar is turning it in full Conan costume.
I thought it was extracted from a fungus, Fusarium venenatum, grown in large fermentation vats.
Those are some pretty quarny jokes, guys. You can do better.
5ing about the 10th different spelling of Qur'an ive seen on what is apparently "burn the Qur'an" day
And what exactly do they hope to accomplish? "Send a message?" "Sending messages" gets rappers killed.
I'm starting to think we're like, 27 years away from another series of crusades.
Well, for one thing, they could be explicitly religious in nature rather than merely occasionally co-opting religious rhetoric for the purposes of imperial geostrategy.

"Religion is considered by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful."
Now Im a true 'Murikan... and Mallsums are welcome, but I believe it is in the best interest of Jesus to hold a petty, useless grudge against browns and burn a bunch of books to send messages.
I also want to put forward a kick-a-packi-in-the-ass day. For too long us good christian 'Murikans have put up with their ornate rugs, fine teas, and devilishly spicy food. Look at what happened in Australia.
Because saying "oops, we're burning books, so I guess we've become those assholes you read about" requires that you be able to read.
If I could have one with for mankind, it would be a higher level of self awareness. Could you imagine how much more awesome the world would be if someone like that jackass was able to say to themselves, "Hey, wait. I'm stupid. I shouldn't listen to anything I say."
