Blasphemy Inc.

Thousands of Islamic fanatics wielding clubs and knives are marching through the streets of Khartoum demanding the execution of teddy bear teacher Gillian Gibbons.

As the mother-of-two started a 15-day prison term, protestors left mosques across the Sudanese capital to denounce the "lenient verdict" and call for the death penalty.

The chaotic scenes in Sudan followed escalating international tensions after a judge jailed Miss Gibbons, who allowed her pupils to call a teddy bear Mohammed ... insulting Islam.

These protests would make a lot more sense if :
(a) the name wasn't voted on by a group of seven-year-olds ;
(b) the offending teddy bear looked like Twitch, the Roadkill Teddy.
