What not to name your dog

Sent in by one of our more intellectual members "Just for a laugh".

Everybody who has a dog calls him "Rover" or "Boy". I call mine "Sex"!

Now Sex has been very embarassing to me. When I went to the city hall to renew his dog licence, I told the clerk that I would like a licence for Sex. He said, "I'd like to have one too". Then I said, "You don't understand. I've had Sex since I was nine years old". He said I must have been quite a kid.

When I got married and went on my honeymoon, I took the dog with me. I told the motel clerk that I wanted a room for my wife and me, and a special room for Sex. He said that every room in the place was for sex. I said, "You don't understand. Sex keeps me awake at night". The clerk said, "Me too".

Danish Cartoons spark riots in Nigeria

Recent riots in Nigeria sparked by the Danish cartoons illustrate that Muslims cannot peacefully coexist with non-muslim neighbours, argues CHINWEIZU

Starting on Friday, Feb.17, 2006, several cities in Nigeria were engulfed in riots, arson and mayhem which left more than 200 persons dead, some 50 churches and mosques burnt, as well as hundreds of shops and residences destroyed and looted. It all began in the far north city of Katsina when a public lecture organized to protest the notorious Danish Mohammed Cartoons veered from its declared purpose and began to violently agitate against President Obasanjo’s scheme to perpetuate himself in office through an opportunistic constitution review process to which most Nigerians are opposed.
