In a response to the recent threats by extremists over a South Park episode, Seattle artist Molly Norris created a poster which deemed 20th of May the first annual “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day”. The poster included all sorts of objects like a box of pasta and a cup of coffee all claiming to be in the likeness of Muhammad. Sheez, did no one tell her Islamic teachings forbid showing images of Muhammad. Holy fatwa lady. Anywho, the friggin thing wouldn’t have gone viral had it not been for the cartoonist herself. When quizzed about why the hell she sent the cartoon to media outlets her response was “Because I’m an idiot.” Hmm, guess you shouldn’t have plastered your name all over it either. Now she is running with Rushdie. As for the dude who set up a Facebook site dedicated to the day, he’s disappeared faster than Obama’s birth certificate!
Regrets, she had a few!

Hello, mommy says I shouldn't talk to strangers!
Okie Dokie, a little update on the cartoonist vs the assassin. Seems like Kurt Westergaard didn’t take his 5 year old granddaughter into the panic room (as first thought) when the axe wielding fanatic broke into his house. It is being reported he left her in the living room and locked himself in his special room all by himself while the mad man swore and carried on like a pork chop, attacking the bathroom door with an axe. Mr Westergaard said ” I feared for my grandchild. But she did great. I knew that he wouldn’t do anything to her.” He went on to say “It was close, really close. But we did it.” Geez gramps, I wouldn’t be so proud! Anywho, the Islamic Somali fanatic who can’t be named (Why the hell not?) is the same dude who was involved in an assassination plot against Hillary Clinton last year.
Psst I bet cartoonist is off babysitting duties until further notice!
