Blasphemous Pineapples

A group of atheist students were kicked out of their university's fresher fair because of a "blasphemous pineapple" named Mohammed. The society displayed a pineapple bearing the name Mohammed on their stall, to "encourage discussion about blasphemy, religion, and liberty". "We wanted to celebrate the fact that we live in a country in which free speech is protected, and where it is lawful to call a pineapple by whatever name one chooses," a society spokesperson said. Later, the group was told to leave the fair by a member of Reading University Student Union (RUSU) staff. Complaints had made against the offending pineapple, although RAHS members insist they were not made aware of any. The society refused to remove the fruit due to their "commitment to freedom of expression". A struggle ensued, wherein the pineapple was seized, but shortly returned to the owners, where it was re-christened Jesus. According to the RAHS, a small group of students then gathered around the table and forcefully removed the pineapple's name tag. The society was then "forced to leave the venue", accompanied by security staff. Isn't this fucking brilliant? My faith is restored in students. This is the kind of self indulgent bollocks I expect from pompous , bolshie undergraduates and we should be seeing more of this farcical tosh reported in the media. Oh, and the pineapple? Blasphemy!
