80 Lashes for Naming Teddy Bear "Muhammed"

It's all so funny. A British teacher asks her students to name a teddy bear, so they choose "Mohammed". Teacher is convicted of blasphemy and is sentenced to 40 lashes.

Funny. Except for the lashes part. And for the laws against blasphemy part.

On second thought, it's just sad and depressing.
