TEHRAN (Reuters) - Not content with pelting European embassies with petrol bombs to protest against cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad, Iranians have decided to rename the "Danish pastries" relished by this nation of cake lovers.

From now on, the sweet, flaky pastries which dominate the shelves in Iran's cake shops will be known as "Roses of the Prophet Mohammad," the official IRNA news agency reported as pressure on Denmark over the cartoons took on a new dimension.

Man, I've got a GREAT idea for a sitcom. A fundie Christian and a fundie Muslim share an apartment in New Orleans. By day, they help rebuild the city and by night their wacky plots to blow-up Bourbon Street fall apart in Gilligan-esque style.

It's got Emmy written all over it. Special guests, cheap locations, the plots write themselves each week.

And a whale of a lesson: These two crazy kids have WAY more in common than they do disagreements.

Damn, I'm just giving this stuff away. Crap.
