In all fairness, it only suggests Richard Dawkins' face is on the toast, it doesn't actually show a picture of the Prophessor

Nice one! But I'm very disappointed to see that the fatwa title was added here - I had dared hope, just for a moment, that it was actually the title used in the Telegraph itself, which would have been inspired!

Someone else had a similar breakfast experience, courtesy of Mitchell and Webb.

The last line in that sketch by Mitchell and Webb is priceless.

With the greatest of respect to Matt, I would like to point out that I did a Dawkins on toast cartoon in Prospect magazine in August:

I just saw an advertisement for a toaster that automatically burns features into your toast. You can get the image of jesus, or if you like you can get the image of a pot leaf. If I eat a piece of toast with Dawkins' image on it will that make me smarter. Homeopathic toast ?

Why didn't Obama make a point about the potential for this cartoon to hurt our feelings!

Flabbergasted...this morning before flushing I looked back (which I don't do normally) and -behold- I saw a divine creature whom I knew to be in the UK at the moment...magic! there must be more between heaven and earth my friends.

Is this toast the literal embodiment of Richard or is it just intended as a metaphor? Is it desecration to spread jam on it?

Very funny! The Late Late Show in Ireland tonight was a joke - they had some woman on who claimed to be in constant contact with some angel or something. This is the show that keeps Ireland in the dark ages - anyone who remembers Richard's interview with Ryan Tubridy from last year will testify to that.

I can't see what the criticism is about.

I see faces in clouds, trees, tea-leaves - who doesn't? The only difference with me is that if I saw Dawkins face on a piece of toast I would eat it, whereas I suspect some people would think twice about it.

The face of Richard Dawkins appeared on my computer when i loaded this site!!!! You know what else? Screw the Mayans, my Calender runs out on December 31st of THIS year! You know what else?? There's a giant radioactive fireball that seems to rise i the East and set in the west every single day and nobody in the media is drawing attention to it!!!! It's all a conspiracy! :P

If the Fatwa works, Richard Dawkins will be "toast" not just "on toast".

Yes But when they did a carbon 14 test on the toast they found it to be over 10,000 years old.
