A high ranking Cleric in Saudi Arabia has demanded the death and destruction of all mice, up to and including cartoon characters Mickey Mouse and Jerry (from Tom and Jerry fame).
From his Beverly Hills home, Mickey Mouse offered the following statement:
"What a load of rat turds! Is this because he's technophobic and afraid of his computer and can't control a mouse? Is it because he's homophobic and doesn't like the fact that I recently married Winnie the Pooh under California law? Is it because he's one of those germophobic people who think that rodents are dirty and carry diseases?"
"This little Shi'ite needs to get a life! Mice like Jerry and Minnie and Mortie and I have our rights too, Besides, we live in a free country and not in a hostile, religously oppressive dictatorship masquerading as a theocracy."
"I understand that he had a dvd and video burning for films like mine and Jerry's, and also burned up the Rescuers films, the Secret of NIMH, and last year's Rattatootsie (or however you pronounce and spell it, but they're just Rats and vermin anyway). What a loss!"
"I think that maybe this whole thing boils down to the fact that they don't want to see women get ahead or be successful or even seen in public. After all, isn't another one of the nicknames for a vagina a mouse?"
