Toy, Bear, Blasphemy, Islam: There’s Got to be a Pun Here Somewhere

A British teacher working in Sudan has been jailed for naming a teddy bear “Muhammad.” She’ll spend a few weeks behind bars then be deported, having “escaped harsher punishment that could have included up to 40 lashes, six months in prison and a fine.”

The bear’s battered corpse is displayed in the town square. To its right hangs the body of Fareeq, a plush representation of an openly gay field mouse.
