Muslim Fun Day cancelled -- but WHY???

Well, this is some of the most shocking news I've heard all week. A theme park in England cancelled a Muslim Fun Day due to lack of interest. I'm speechless!

Event organizers deck the halls for Muslim Fun Day.

But let me ask: just what, exactly, do you get as part of Muslim Fun Day?

"Music, gambling and alcohol were to be banned for the day and theme park rides such as "Ripsaw," "Corkscrew" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" all segregated by sex.

But the park said the event's organizers, Islamic Leisure, who rented the park for the day and were marketing the event, had called it off due to "insufficient ticket sales."

Shame on you, theme park ticket buyers of central England! How can you not take advantage of an opportunity like this? Sure, for Irish Fun Day or Brazilian Fun Day, you line up around the block. But Muslim Fun Day rolls around, with its promises of "somber prayer" and "sexually segregated roller coasters," and all of a sudden you're all "washing your hair" that day? Unbelievable.

P.S. Thanks to DB for sending this along. Now back to your prayers, jerk.
