*  Soy protein shake outrages Muslims.

*  Paris Hilton outrages Muslims.

*  Rational inquiry outrages Muslims.

*  Late Beethoven string quartet outrages Muslims.

*  Radio telescope outrages Muslims.

* "Every conservation law being a law of symmetry" outrages Muslims.

*  Hilary Putnam outrages Muslims.

* Poorly defined group of non-outraged Muslims outrages Muslims.
