Malaysians insulted by presence of Scottie Dogs in Commonwealth Games opening parade.

Malaysian politicians are barking mad about the Scottish terriers that pranced through the opening ceremony of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Dogs are considered unclean in some Islamic cultures, which means their presence at the games vexed some Muslims.

Mohamad Sabu, of the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, said that Malaysia and all the other Islamic countries of the Commonwealth deserved an apology.

“This is just so disrespectful to Malaysia and Muslims — especially as it happened during Ramadan,” Sabu told The Telegraph. “ Muslims are not allowed to touch dogs, so the organizer should have been more aware and sensitive on this issue.”

“It is hoped this incident can teach other Western countries to be more respectful in the future,” he added.

Dominatrix Barbara Jean “B.J.” Geardello and her slave, Robert Deyell would surely have been delighted to march in the parade in the place of the Scottie designated “Malaysia”. “Robert would do it on all fours, on a leash, but he couldn’t wear no banner,” BJ told FWIW, “it might hide his nakedness, and that’s no fun.”

    If they can figure out a way to open the games to the Koreans, they could have grilled and digested the pooches before they even got to the “M” countries marching in.
