Pastor Terry Jones — who I'm pretty sure is not the guy who was in Monty Python but then, what with ?all the quantum physics around these days, again maybe he was, hey, wouldn't it be crazy if he was the same guy, huh? — has made The Onion's list of People Who Mattered in 2010…
With the gaze of the whole world fixed on his small Gainesville, FL–based Dove World Outreach Center this Sept. 11, Pastor Terry Jones shocked an anxious media by calling off his threat to burn 200 copies of the Koran, which is bullshit, really, because the guy should have at least had the balls to torch one measly copy. Right?
If Jones, or anyone, wants to get a few hundred million people all riled up on the anniversary of a major national tragedy by saying he's going to burn a Koran, he'd better step up to the goddamn plate and burn a fucking Koran.
