Big Ben to be renamed Massive Mohammed from 2018

Quote:


The famous landmark, which is due to undergo extensive refurbishment next week, is to be called ‘Massive Mohammed’ from 2018 to reflect the city’s growing diversity.

“London is a city of many faiths and many nationalities, so it’s only right that its famous landmarks are representative of that rich cultural melting pot,” said project manager, Libby Tardy.

“We’ve had a Muslim mayor since 2016 and according to the Daily Mail over 87% of Londoners are now Muslim, so we are confident that the public will really embrace the new nickname.”

Due to health and safety fears, ‘Massive Mo’ will be silenced during the four-year renovation period, however, Tardy revealed that large speakers installed at the top of the tower will instead play the Muslim call to prayer every hour upon the hour. She also told the Herald that the Mayor’s office had been consulting with a range of different faith groups to seek their views on modifying other existing landmarks.

A rose by any other name

Nah, they miss the point. Even in jest, poor taste, & spasmodic attempts @ satire, the current incarnation of Islam will not allow even a parodic naming of a physical object as Mohammed, however designated. It would be tantamount to blasphemy, I believe.

Daily news, satire and comment from the world's worst local newspaper. Rochdale Herald's motto - from their website.
