Oh my aching sides, priceless developments from the egotistical mind of Richard Dawkins. The Huffington Post reports:
Richard Dawkins has declared victory for Osama Bin Laden – because his honey fell foul of airport security rules.
The atheist vented his fury on Twitter after the “little jar of honey” went to waste, presumably because of restrictions on liquids that can be taken on as hand luggage.
Keeping things well in perspective, he tweeted that “Bin Laden has won, in airports of the world every day”.
And Dawkins knew who was to blame – ‘dundridges’.
“Bin Laden has won, in airports of the world every day. I had a little jar of honey, now thrown away by rule-bound dundridges. STUPID waste.”
For some reason, Twitter didn’t show much sympathy for his loss.
“Bin Laden is eating your honey in heaven. LOL.”
“terrorists only like honey in quantities less than 100ml :-(”
“You truly are the real victim of terrorism.”
“Glad to hear that airport police confiscated Richard Dawkins’ explosive honey”
Dawkins didn’t see the funny side:
“Of course I know the airport security rules. My point is those rules are stupid advertising displays of dundridge zeal. Bin Laden has won.”
“Are you carpers really too thick to see the difference between a matter of general principle and a petty concern with a single jar of honey?”
There followed a stream of retweets bemoaning other casualties of airport security checks.
For future reference, Richard, either keep your honey in a container smaller than 100ml and put it in a clear plastic bag, or leave it in your luggage.
I love the way Dawkins feels the need to use certain words to make himself appear constantly ‘clever’ that I don’t imagine for a moment he says in everyday conversation. I suppose I’m just one of those ‘thick carpers’ though. We need this comedian on panel shows immediately ranting on his one man confectionery campaign against dead Islamists. Petitions are already being signed calling for him to front a ‘right on’ atheist crust punk band called ‘Dundridge Zeal.’ Encore. Encore. You silly little man.
