It is only possible for a person to be finitely insane. Put another way, I am convinced that because of the limits of the individual human mind, no one will ever be more lunatic than the most lunatic person ever was. There is no way to infinitely gradate or differentiate catatonia – one person cannot be more disfunctional than someone who is entirely disfunctional. The end is the end.
Just wanted to get that out there.
Because it’s becoming increasingly clear to me, that when it comes to the addle-pated madness masquerading as PC-think, a different set of rules obtain. When many silly minds work together, the horizons of lunacy are gloriously infinite. To wit:
British banks are banning piggy banks because they may offend some Muslims.
Halifax and NatWest banks have led the move to scrap the time-honoured symbol of saving from being given to children or used in their advertising, the Daily Express/Daily Star group reports here… Salim Mulla, secretary of the Lancashire Council of Mosques, backed the bank move.
“This is a sensitive issue and I think the banks are simply being courteous to their customers,” he said.
Is it possible to think that this kind of madness is self-limiting? One can only hope:
Khalid Mahmoud, the Labour MP for a Birmingham seat and one of four Muslim MPs in Britain… criticised the piggy-bank ban.
“We live in a multicultural society and the traditions and symbols of one community should not be obliterated just to accommodate another,” Mr Mahmoud said.
“I doubt many Muslims would be seriously offended by piggy banks.”
I should hope not.
No word on whether the Halifax and NatWest banks, nor the Lancashire Council of Mosques finds the continued orgiastic slaughter of actual Muslims by their ostensible co-religionists offensive or not. On that, they remain strangely quiet.
