Actually, I politely, subliminally and unoffensively told him to F-off; which he happily did.
In other words, you just thought it?

I say a topless demonstration would make for a great protest action, don't you think? I can organize some coverage.
Surely that would be counterproductive? And getting my knockers out in these temperatures? You're having a laugh...

Sure but ever since one of the more radical Muslims decided to hit my bare upper arms and shout "haram, haram" at me in a tram in Zurich, I'm a bit sensitive to this sort of thing. Your world will not fall apart if things are a little different and it is one thing to make people welcome and another to change your whole way of doing things just so you don't offend them.
Please dont take offence, he was just trying to get you on the "Path of the Righteous" so you can go to Heaven too.

I mean they will be so bored with just the Virgins in there!

I made a funny!
