God angry with Blair; plague of toads threatened

News has reached Prattle Towers (temporary Irish encampment) that Terry Jones has a scoop from Heaven itself—the Lord God Almighty is not pleased at Tony Blair's attempt to blame Him for the Iraq business.

A high-level leak has revealed that God is furious at Tony Blair's attempts to implicate him in the bombing of Iraq. Sources close to the archangel Gabriel report him as describing the Almighty as hopping mad ... with sanctimonious yet unscrupulous politicians claiming He would condone their bestial activities when He has no way of going public Himself, owing to the MMW agreement (a reference to the long-established Moving in Mysterious Ways concordat)...

If Tony Blair thinks his friendship with George W Bush is worth rubbing out a couple of hundred thousand Iraqi men, women and children, then that's something he can talk over with me later, said God. But when he starts publicly claiming that's the way I do the arithmetic too, it's time I put my foot down! It is well known that God has a very big foot.

What if the Earth was destroyed? How would you know? Well, the Prattle now links to an important service which will tell you the current Earth Destruction Status, provided by the International Earth-Destruction Advisory Board in Nottingham.

The Israeli Anti-Semitic Cartoons Contest

Israel: Back in February, an couple of Israelis announced their own response to the Mohammed cartoons:

Eyal Zusman (30, back from anonymity) and Amitai Sandy (29), graphic artist and publisher of Dimona Comix Publishing, from Tel-Aviv, Israel, have followed the unfolding of the Muhammad cartoon-gate events in amazement, until finally they came up with the right answer to all this insanity - and so they announced today the launch of a new anti-Semitic cartoons contest - this time drawn by Jews themselves!

We'll show the world we can do the best, sharpest, most offensive Jew hating cartoons ever published! said Sandy No Iranian will beat us on our home turf!

Well, the results are in, and you can view the cartoons online: Israeli Anti-Semitic Cartoons Contest, and an exhibition in Tel Aviv is planned. Not surprisingly, most refer to the Palestinian situation, the Holocaust or parody old tropes about Jewish control of the media. There are a few making reference to that eternally Prattleworthy topic, the Blood Libel, and my choice for the best of them is Matzoh Balls, by Guttman and McConnell.
