Good boy!

A very astute young man, @ashwonderboy, wrote on Twitter  “Lets burn a mosque and kill all the Sikhs.” It was not racist or inciting racial hatred, but a very funny comment on the education level of members of the EDL. #EDLtweet

Sadly most people didn’t get it. He has now deleted his Twitter account because of the backlash of the ignorant millions who were too short to appreciate the irony in his statement, it going right over their heads.

Never mind I am sure they will be able to redeem themselves at some time in the not too distant future, when some other minor genius pops his head over the parapet for target practice, but then some people are so busy being PC that they couldn't find their own arse, how are they ever going to be expected to find irony.

Hi Maffi,

Sadly, your irony is a bit misplaced on this occasion. I suspect publishing the post at 1:30am is the reason for the typos and poor taste.

I thought you would have loads of comments by now. I can well see how a proportion of the people who use twitter and other social media could get confused.

Not sure what you mean John my WORD spell checked this OK. Would you like to send me a corrected copy I would be interested to see it.

Hi Maffi,

The typos are this

"...backlash of the ignorant millions who were too short to appreciate the irony..."

Not sure what someone's height has to do with their ability to understand irony.

and this

"...but then some people are so busy being PC that they could find their own arse..."

The word 'not' is missing.

John there was no poor taste. Next week it wouldn't have had any meaning.

I will give you the second point and have edited that. But the first point is explained by the last bit of that paragraph.

....it going right over their heads.

Thanks for your comments at least one person reads this diatribe

Hi Maffi,

Very clever, 'short' and 'going over their heads' obviously I've become a bit of a midget (is that PC or poor taste) as I missed that completely. It is an excellent play on words though.

Taste though, poor or otherwise, is a matter of opinion. I think we will have to agree to disagree.

I think a lot of people may have missed the 'short' point.
