I'm sure you've all heard about Terry Jones, the so-called preacher of a church in Florida. He's the on-again, off-again Koran burner, who's hoping to send a message to Muslims about plans to build a Islamic community centre near ground zero.
Super boring. I cannot believe that the media are giving this guy credence or a platform for his hate-filled speeches. I could not care less whether he goes through with burning the Koran or not. Why? Because he's a moron, that's why. The reason he's doing it is obvious - his 15 minutes of "fame." Unfortunately the media are not much more intelligent. It was just the top story on the CBC national news. Pfft.
So, instead, I would like to take a moment to honor another, much-more-worthy-of-our-attention, Terry Jones. The guy from Monty Python. The man who directed The Holy Grail, The Meaning of Life and the Life of Brian. The guy from the famous Spam sketch, and my personal favourite The Four Yorkshiremen.
So on that note, lets think of the super fun Terry Jones on September 11th, not the Koran burning idiot who doesn't deserve another second of our attention.
Until next time,
