Essential Reading

Mark Steyn takes homonymic punnery to the next level while making some first rate points. So what else is new? Here's the first paragraph:

From Europe's biggest-selling newspaper, the Sun: ''Furious Muslims have blasted adult shop [i.e., sex shop] Ann Summers for selling a blowup male doll called Mustafa Shag."

Guess which part of this didn't cause offense. Hint: Michelangelo Antonioni could not be reached for comment.
