There has been much 'Mufti talk' since the recent comment by Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the late Mufti of Jerusalem (Mohammad Amin al-Hussayni 1921-1937), implicating him in the Holocaust of WWII.
After the initial shock of the absurd comments, the humorous ones appeared on social media. I laughed and laughed at the wit; it broke the doom and gloom of the past several weeks; it gave me relief. I went to bed thinking of the comments 'blame it on the Mufti.'
And so it was.....
It was so hot this summer and one way to relieve the discomfort was to eat ice cream and ice pops.
I was in the Super Duper supermarket contemplating buying ice pops, the type you freeze and then cut the top off and leisurely squeeze and suck, enjoying the body temperature drop (slightly) and ignoring the resulting 'brain freeze.'
As these ice pops come in liquid form, they need freezing.
Freezing causes the freezer to work more.
The freezer working more takes up more electricity.
Using more electricity consumes more energy.
Producing more energy to freeze my ice pops contributes to global warming.
A difficult decision.
Suddenly, the Mufti appeared with his shopping trolley and put many packets of ice pops in it.
Conclusion: The Mufti caused global warming!
Note to self: Check facts before blaming.
