How to show your support for Muslim extremism?

Just wear the black-and-white scarf, and people will think that you are giving your support for the Muslim extremism.

That was what happened to Rachel Ray on the Dunkin Donuts Advertisement.

Conservative blog says black-and-white scarf is symbol of support for Muslim extremism.

Dunkin' Donuts has pulled an online advertisement featuring celebrity chef Rachael Ray after criticism from conservative U.S. bloggers over her choice of scarf.

Ray, while promoting an iced coffee, was wearing a black-and-white scarf, similar to the kaffiyeh, a scarf commonly worn in the Middle East.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez once donned a kaffiyeh in a gesture of solidarity with Palestinians.

Critics, including conservative commentator Michelle Malkin, argued that Ray should not be wearing such a scarf because, they said, it has come to symbolize Muslim extremism and terrorism.

The kaffiyeh "has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad," Malkin said in her blog last week.

"Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant [and not-so-ignorant] fashion designers, celebrities and left-wing icons."

In the spot, Ray wears the fringed scarf loosely around her neck, while holding an iced coffee and standing in front of trees with pink blossoms.

I think this is silly and ridiculous...absolutely ridiculous, since when a scarf become the symbol of support Muslim extremism?

Scarf is just a scarf. Yes it's true that the scarf commonly worn in Middle East but that doesn't mean that whoever worn that scarf are supporting the Muslim extremism.

Scarf is just a scarf, that scarf is just one of an attire for Muslim people.

Maybe Americans would be disagree, since they have history of one and that was their biggest nightmare, well it was the world nightmare too and we all hope that thing would not happen again in the future and in anywhere on this planet.

I just hope that they can see things from different perspective.

The Worst Pickup Lines Ever

From cheesy to overused to the downright lame.

The clich├ęs

1. "Did we meet before? You look familiar."

2. "How do you feel about love at first sight?"

3. "Excuse me, are you a model?"

4. "What's your sign?"

5. "You look like you're waiting for someone."

6. "Something tells me we have a lot in common. How should we find out?"

7. "Here's my number. What's yours?"

The cheesy

1. "Did I just bump into you? Or did you just bump into me?"

2. "I'm feeling a little off today. Would you like to turn me on?"

3. "I've lost my phone number. Can I have yours?"

4. "Do you mind if I take you home with me right now?"

5. "I think there's something wrong with my eyes because I can't take them off you."

6. "What does it feel like to be the most beautiful girl in this room?"

7. "Do you have a name or can I call you mine?"

8. "Your legs must be tired because you've been running through my mind all night."

9. "If I get hooked on you, will you hook up with me?"

The failed flattery

1. "You look as cute as your dog!"

2. "Nobody ever says no to me."

3. "All those curves, and me with no brakes."

4. "You remind me of a girl I used to date."

5. "If I told you that you had a great body, would you hold it against me?"

6. "I've never met a woman I couldn't learn to love."

7. "What's a nice girl like you doing in a dirty mind like mine?"

Moral of the story?

Pickup lines don't work, but they're definitely great for a laugh.

I'm not really back yet, but I have a lillte time to escape from the madness.

Third Opinion

Three Doctors are discussing which types of patients they prefer. Doctor Watson says, ''I prefer librarians. All their organs are alphabetized.''

Doctor Fitzpatrick says, ''I prefer mathematicians. All their organs are numbered.''

Doctor Ahn says, ''I prefer lawyers. They are gutless, heartless, brainless, spineless, and their heads and rear ends are interchangeable.''
