I was informed by a reliable source today (my dad) that the BBC's new plans for recruiting weather presenters could well be in breach of every employment and equality law ever made. He told me that he heard from a friend he bumped into while he was getting his newspapers this morning that the BBC is planning to employ only Muslims from now on to present the weather - and no one else. When he asked the bloke what prompted this hairbrained decision, he was told:
"Because sometimes the weather is Sunni, but more often than not it's Shiite."
Naturally, I was outraged. Jokes really don't come much worse than that.
