Iranian Freedom Fries!

This is kinda fun!

TEHRAN, Iran - Not content with pelting European embassies with Molotov cocktails to protest against cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, Iranians have decided to rename the “Danish pastries” relished by this nation of cake lovers.

From now on, the sweet, flaky pastries which dominate the shelves in Iran’s cake shops will be known as “Roses of the Prophet Muhammad,” the official IRNA news agency reported as pressure on Denmark over the cartoons took on a new dimension.

Way to go, Iran! That's showin' those Danes!

I bet this'll have about the same global impact as Americans renaming French Fries "Freedom Fries".

::shaking head in wonder at the stupidity of it all::
