A Deutsche Oper production of Mozart's Idomeneo has been cancelled because of fears that a scene in which the severed heads of Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad and Poseidon are presented to the titular king might inflame religious tensions. Apparently, nobody has made any specific threats, but I think we know which particular interest group might be expected to overreact, don't we?
That's right. The fucking Greeks. Not Nikos who runs the cash 'n' carry, he's a good mush. It's them ancient ones who are the worst. They come over here, with their beards and their philosophers and their dramatists and their geometry, and they act like we owe them something. And were we asked whether we wanted them? No. Well, we did bring that big wooden horse thing in, but we didn't know they'd want to stay. Anyway, we're supposed to have freedom of speeech, but if you say anything about them, even if it's a joke, like how you reckon that Aphrodite bird's a bit of all right, and they go fucking mental. It's Platonic correctness gone mad.
I reckon they've lost their fucking marbles.
