That will show those pesky Danes

In retaliation for caricatures of the Muslim prophet, the confectioners' union of Iran ordered danish pastries renamed "Roses of the Prophet Muhammad."

I really thought they would go with "Freedom Pastries." And I'm still waiting to find out if they stop referring to Hamlet as the Melancholy Dane and start calling him the Melancholy Rose of the Prophet Muhammad.
