Which is a bit weird because earlier drying off from my shower I was musing what literary device I could cook up from the fact on 60 Minutes Steve Irwin admitted to Charles Woolley that he neither drinks or smokes. Does this make him a Muslim, i thought to himself, who reveres Allah's creation? You know a bit of culture jam (in fairly bad taste which has never really stopped me before) of two big PR phenomenon'sLet's attempt to follow the train of thought here:
1. The sad death of a dedicated wildlife lover (ethologist even - one who studies animal behaviour) and
2. The smearing of a huge world religion of Islam by shallow ratbags like M Devine on Fairfax platform yesterday.
1. Steve Irwin is not a Christian, but he doesn't drink or smoke.
2. Therefore, Steve Irwin may be a Muslim.
3. Muslims are smeared.
I cannot claim to understand what led the author of this piece to cover a new topic in each sentence, but we can do something with this. Where was this piece headed? Post your ideas for the next topic-jump in the comments.
