Me+DPR Jones+Lone Frank+AronRa

The first part of the Magic Sandwich Show from Dublin is now available on youtube. You know you want to watch it.

There were Muslims lurking about here at the Dublin conference, and I spent a few minutes talking to them and grabbing some of their literature. I can tell you this: don’t bother.
