Enlightened Moderation

This is really old news. But it is so funny that I should put it up here, or down there or wherever :D
Operation to remove light bulb from inmate's anus - Reuters

MULTAN, Pakistan (Reuters) - Fateh Mohammad, a prison inmate in Pakistan, says he woke up last weekend with a glass light bulb in his anus.

On Wednesday night, doctors brought Mohammad's misery to an end after a one-and-a-half hour operation to remove the object.

"Thanks Allah, now I feel comfort. Today, I had my breakfast. I was just drinking water, nothing else," Mohammad, a grey-beared man in his mid-40s, told Reuters from a hospital bed in the southern central city of Multan.

"We had to take it out intact," said Dr. Farrukh Aftab at Nishtar Hospital. "Had it been broken inside, it would be a very very complicated situation."

Mohammad, who is serving a four-year sentence for making liquor, prohibited for Muslims, said he was shocked when he was first told the cause of his discomfort. He swears he didn't know the bulb was there.

"When I woke up I felt a pain in my lower abdomen, but later in hospital, they told me this," Mohammad said.

"I don't know who did this to me. Police or other prisoners."

The doctor treating Mohammad said he'd never encountered anything like it before, and doubted the felon's story that someone had drugged him and inserted the bulb while he was comatose.

Maybe this is all about the "Enlighted Moderation" that His Highness Democratically Elected Dictator for Life (Elected with 98% vote share with 400% guarantee) El-Presidente General P Musharraf of The Islamic Republic of Pakistan keeps talking about.

We all understand the enlightened part here, but what about moderation? Is it that it was because of moderation that a bulb was used and not any other lighting instrument, like perhaps something a lot longer?
