Melted Butter

There's been lots of discussion about the Danish cartoons, but easily the best comment comes from Italy's Reform Minister Roberto Calderoli:

"I have had T-shirts made with the cartoons that have upset Islam and I will
start wearing them today," Ansa quoted Calderoli as saying.
He said the T-shirts were not meant to be a provocation but added that he saw no point trying to appease extremists. "We have to put an end to this story that we can talk to these people. They only want to humiliate people. Full stop. And what are we becoming? The civilization of melted butter?" Calderoli said.

God I love Italy.
