I read in the paper today that Salman Rushdie wrote the ‘Naughty But Nice’ slogan for cream cake ads. Now I understand what all those fatwas were about. The Koran says quite clearly that cream cakes are well-behaved but unpalatable. Hardly surprising that the peace-loving followers of Islam reacted with such fury.
btw there’s a hilarious post on fatwas in the Mad Priest’s excellent blog here
