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!
