Blasphemy at Burger King: For the young British Muslim author of this piece in Harper’s, ordering an ice-cream cone at Burger King was “the defining moment of my life.” And not in a good way.

“I feel humiliated. I want to humiliate the person who did this to an extent that he never works again. I’m going to make him see that it was the biggest mistake in his life. I want to meet the guy.”

What was so humiliating? So infuriating? So life changing? The Burger King logo apparently bore a resemblance to the Arabic spelling of Allah. Burger King has apologized and says it will redesign the offending article.
