"A British teacher has been arrested in Sudan for letting her children name a teddy bear Mohammed, the British Embassy said.
Gillian Gibbons, 54, from Liverpool, was detained on Sunday on suspicion of insulting Islam's prophet.
The teacher let her class of seven year olds choose the name as part of a school project."
Why has the teacher been arrested and not the teddy bear? Unless it's on record that he objected to being called Mohammed, then I think it's him who should be prosecuted under Sudan's "faith and religions" legislation.
a teddy bear, yesterday, not causing
an international incident.

After revelations that Gordon Brown absentmindedly lost the entire records of the UK population, made a bank lose billions through incompetent management, and kept the military begging for money for his own amusement, another story has exploded that threatens to harm the Prime Minister's reputation further as well as gain the anger of animal rights groups.
Horrified onlookers were left shaking when, during a visit to a primary school in Biggin Hill, Gordon Brown reached into the cage of the school hamster, picked it up and placed it in his mouth.
"We all thought it was a joke," Said Mrs Gwiggis, a witness to the incident whose child attends the school, "but then he started chewing and we realised he was actually eating it"
Screaming children looked on as the Prime Minister continued to eat the rodent, "staring wildly as blood dribbled down his face." "Then he ran off down the corridor laughing like a madman," said Mr MgGoo, the children's teacher.
Shocked parents today demanded an explanation from school's Headmistress, asking how such a dangerous individual could have been allowed so close to the hamster's cage. "We all want to know how he was allowed anywhere near Pinky; he was such a gentle peaceful creature." said Miss Biss, whose child still wets the bed after witnessing being at the scene. "Being eaten by Gordon Brown is no way to die."
"I don't think he's fit to be our Prime Minister," said another eye witness who wished to remain anonymous. "What's Tony doing now? Can we have him back? He never ate children's pets"
Do you have a story about Gordon Brown? Especially one that might link him to England not qualifying for the European Championships? Then please give the Small Town Scribbles news desk a call.

Erm, slight problem everyone. Two computer discs containing the names, addresses, dates of birth, National Insurance numbers and bank details of 25 million people have gone missing.
Could everyone take a look for them please? Maybe you've unknowingly picked the envelope up from your door-mat with the assorted leaflets from Pizza Land and Iceland Frozen Foods and thrown it into the recycling?
Or perhaps that Lovefilm envelope you think you got this morning and tossed onto your coffee table actually contains the entire database of Inland Revenue and Customs.
If you could just look in your drawers and down the back of the settee, I'm sure Alistair would be grateful. Let him know if you find anything, as this could cause a few problems.
