I am not in favor of burning books--ANY book. So, I propose that instead of actually burning a Quran, we drink to the demise of fundamentalist Islam using this recipe:


1. Layer Arak* and rum in a shot glass with the rum on top.
2. Fill a beer mug halfway with the beer (preferably an American brand).
3. Proudly recite the following from the Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
3. Light the rum, let it burn for a bit,
4. Then dunk the shot glass in the beer and chug.

*Arak is a Middle Eastern annise liquor or aperitif.
