Drawing the Prophet

Posted in Life Sucks by DCroy on 27 April 2010

When our poor, helpless billion-dollar media conglomerates such as Viacom are made to cower under the jackboots of a completely unknown fringe extremist person or two or three wielding the ultimate power of having a website, a keyboard, and fingers enough to type up empty threats on that keyboard, it’s up to the stronger among us Americans to come to the aid of our weaker fellow citizens.

If a poorly drawn U-Haul is now considered too outrageously offensive* for I don’t even know who because this is still America isn’t it, we can only wonder what might be considered safe. I’ve been a proud infidel my whole life, so I will happily step into the breach. I’d like to propose “World Draw Mohammed Day”. And to get the ball rolling, here’s my first entry:

An image of the Prophet Mohammed

Matt and Trey I ain’t, but what’re you gonna do.

* Leaving aside the ontological weirdness involved in considering that a poorly drawn image of a rental truck somehow “contains” an un-drawn “image” of a religious leader and therefore is somehow considered a “representation” of said religious leader, because that whole can of worms just makes my head spin. There aren’t irony quotes enough in the whole Internet for me to even begin making sense of all that shit.

    You’ve got to pick a day. Perhaps the prophet’s birthday? The 12 of the month of Rabi. If we all drew a picture of Mohammed at the same time, the extremists couldn’t kill us all could they? And isn’t that what they’re trying to do anyway?

      If you check out http://zombietime.com/mohammed_image_archive/ you can get a lot of inspiration from a whole bunch of images of the prophet from before it was arbitrarily decided sometime in the 16th or 17th centuries to be blasphemous.

        Thanks for that. Now I’m just waiting for them to add my awesome work!
