I love cartoons, Danish or otherwise

French newspaper France Soir has boldly reprinted the Danish cartoons that continues to infuriate thin-skinned Muslims. The paper bravely declared: "We have the right to caricature God." It gets better:
For its front page, the newspaper even commissioned its own image, showing a peeved Muhammad sitting on a cloud with Buddha, a Jewish God and a Christian God, who says: "Don’t complain Muhammad, we’ve all been caricatured here."
The French initiative seems to have set off a Domino effect. According to Charles Bremmer "[o]ther papers in Italy, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands and Italy [have] joined France Soir in publishing some of the cartoons."

Do enjoy the Jyllands-Posten cartoons that ticked off the Mohammedans.

The following got two thumbs up from me:

I wonder if the 9-11 hijackers made it before stocks ran out.

OT, but I can't see your email...

Just found your blog via your essay on pareidolia; to the examples you have, I offer an addition which is - well - apt given the current brouhaha:,,1700465,00.html

Looks like it didn't fit, so try this.

Both "Allah" and "Muhammad" are on the same fish? That indeed is most interesting. I wonder how much force fitting they had to do to see these particular words. As for the list in my essay, unfortunately I had (in my shortsightedness) limited it to "instances of simulacra of Christian personalities." Else, I'd certainly add this one.
