Bad news for the guy in the Mickey Mouse suit

A Saudi cleric has declared that Mickey Mouse is a "soldier of Satan" and should be killed.

Sheik Muhammad al-Munajid says Islamic law labels the mouse a "repulsive, corrupting creature" that works for Satan and will burn down one's house. Islamic law allows the killing of mice "in all cases," including, apparently, when the mouse is make-believe and animated.

The sheik condemned all cartoons that glorify rodents. Speedy Gonzales, Jerry and Mighty Mouse were unavailable for comment.
