I don't understand how a toy gun can make sounds that can be heard as words with meanings.


One thing missing from this article is a description of the sound itself. Was it something like "Ayeeeeeesh"? Something that, if you listened carefully, could be taken to sound like Aisha?

Well, who knows? As you say Joanne, they give no hint of what the sound actually was. Perhaps giving any more detail would itself be to commit blasphemy. Though if the faithful can see the word "Allah" written on a piece of bread, then I'm sure they can manage hearing offensive words in the noise of a toy gun - especially given the apparent eagerness some take in seeking out reasons to be offended.
