The (Tali)ban

Those Taliban: what a bunch of utter turds! Couldn't bear anyone else having a slightly different outlook on life or—Allah forbid!—actually enjoying themselves. Music: that was out on pain of death. Shaving your beard, not praying at the right time of day, not wearing a burqa: all signs of the infidel. Keeping pigeons, flying kites, displaying pictures, dancing at weddings, gambling: far too much fun, if you asked them.

Mind you, who are we to talk?

I blame Oliver Cromwell.
