|The answer to life the universe and everything|
Warning satire follows:
Still in the spirit of Dr. Norman Geisler, I would like to pose a defense of Ergun Caner.
- While speaking quickly on one occasion, Ergun accidentally jumped from his towel drying story to a joke about his bald head. At least he didn't use other slurs. This was hardly an attempt to say "towel head".
- It is well known that Ergun Caner is a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fan. When he said "towel head" he was actually making a reference to the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. You can even wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a bush, but very ravenous). Ergun regularly observes Towel Day.
- This statement was intended as humor and was taken as such by the audience. Indeed, Ergun has made this joke for more than a decade and never once was it taken as a insult against Muslims. He was illustrating the misconceptions between Americans and Muslims.
