The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Well King Richard the Lionheart probably did piss off more than a few muslims once upon a time buuuuut...maybe he should be more revered by modern fundamentalist muslims:
Richard I was officially invested as duke of Normandy on 20 July 1189 and was crowned king in Westminster Abbey on 3 September 1189. When he was crowned, Richard barred all Jews and women from the ceremony, but some Jewish leaders arrived to present gifts for the new king. According to Ralph of Diceto, Richard's courtiers stripped and flogged the Jews, then flung them out of court When a rumour spread that Richard had ordered all Jews to be killed, the people of London began a massacre. Many Jews were beaten to death, robbed, and burned alive. Many Jewish homes were burned down, and several Jews were forcibly baptised
Sort of like Allah the 2nd
Listen, don't mention the war. I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it all right.
