Breaking Naan Bread With The Enemy

I'm all for universal peace and harmony and the peaceful and profitable interaction between all colours and creeds, but Vindaloo Against Violence?

I have no idea how common anti-Indian violence is in Australia; clearly any amount is too much, but is the consumption of ludicrously hot curry really likely to decrease tensions? Kormas Against Klansmen might work, once you get past the concern of whether one is simply swapping racial hostility for racial stereotyping, but vindaloo?

That's like Torture for Tolerance. Burns for Brotherhood. You may as well try to promote African-American culture in the States by lining up every white person in the country and getting Mike Tyson to punch them all in the face.

On the other hand, this is probably very good news for Australian dentists. I wonder how many of them are Indian?

h/t to Chuck.
