Ban the C-word

Fictitious Journalist, a new anonymous egyptian blogger that reports fake news on the middle-east, has just made his/her first breakthrough story: The Danes have found the best way to get out of the cartoon crisis. Their ingenius solution? They banned the word "cartoon" from their vocabulary. From DFN (Denmark Fibbing Network)- In a recent move to end the drama surrounding the Danish cartoons of the Muslim prophet, Denmark has decided to omit the word "cartoon" from its vocabulary. The Queen, sick of people calling for her death over the Mohamed cartoons, and of the lewd cartoon characterizations of her person since September, has decreed that "cartoon" is banished from the Danish dictionary. "I think it will do our country a world of good if we banish the C word," said the Queen in a public statement Wednesday evening, "The rest of the world should follow our suit." I agree. Read the whole thing. And don't miss out the latest scoop on the Nancy Ajram/K-Fed love affair. It all apparently started when Nancy heard K-Fed's POPOZAO and fell in love with its artistic genius. Hey, it could happen!

Dear Sandmonkey.
Now you're exceeding yourself. But you score a good point! The word "cartoon" cannot be omitted from the Danish dictionary, because there is no such word in Danish. You won't find it in any dictionary of Danish. The Danish word is "karikatur", almost the same as the English word "caricature".
How about trying som newspeak, - if you happen to know Orwell.

1000 persons were gathered outside the mosque after the Friday prayer and were told about the reward. A Danish flag and a picture of the Danish prime minister were also burned.
Sirajul Haq demanded extradition of the C-word-ist so he could be brought before a Pakistani curt.

Funny. But it would never happen I think.

First of all like CD said. Cartoon is not a danish word. Second Denmark is a constitutional monarcy - the queen does not have any political power. The parliament elected by the people make all the laws. So the queen can not decreed anything.

The guy says he makes up stories about the Middle East because nothing in the newspaper is worth reading. I just hope he doesn´t make serious rumour and that they spread. Part of the reason why the embassy in Syria was burnt was that radikal islamists were spreading false rumours about Danes burning the Koran i Denmark via sms text messages. Anyway its hard to tell what a serious rumour is - you don´t think many Danes took the cartoons very serious in the first place.
