Let me guess...from the inventors of midnight basketball?

Norway's Prime Minister is in a tizzy because the Swedish company IKEA, which produced home furnishings, shows only male figures in their instruction manuals.

"This isn't good enough," Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik was quoted Thursday as telling the daily Verdens Gang. "It's important to promote attitudes for sexual equality, not least in Muslim nations."

"They should change this," he said. "There's no justification for it."

I'm sure that would make a world of difference to Moslem women, who in many Moslem nations cannot vote or drive, and must cover their faces if they appear in public, to see female characters on the instruction manuals of the furniture their husbands buy. That'll solve the problem, won't it.

Michelle Malkin point out the silliness of Bondevik's whining, and also the bigger problem of hard to understand instruction manuals. Jay Tea at WizBang wonders if Michelle may be suffering from “battered” consumer syndrome.
