May 20: First Annual Everybody Draw Mohammad Day

In response to the Islamic mau-mauing of Comedy Central over the Mohammed-the-Bear incident in South Park, a new viral initiative has been launched on the web:

Draw Mohammed Day

(Click the image to see the full-sized poster, which includes the other candidates for the “real” image of Mohammed.)

For us, the viral chain of transmission began with Dan Savage, then passed through Michael Moynihan at Reason Magazine and Allahpundit at Hot Air.

I’ll have to put on my thinking cap and try to come up with another Mo-Image to submit. In the meantime, I contributed a few of them a while back, including:

Mo (pbuh)

Which was a small component of a much larger project:

Pbuh ’n’ J sandwich

It’s also important in this context to remember Lars Vilks, the Modoggie Man, who is possibly the most prolific and inventive creator of images that offend the followers of the prophet. Besides his drawings of “The Prophet as a Roundabout Dog”, Mr. Vilks has contributed “The Prophet as a Shoe”:

Prophet-Shoe

Not to mention:

Two Prophets

Readers with artistic talent (and those who can’t even draw a straight line with AutoCAD) should dust off the old #2 pencil and get ready for May 20.

Escape Velocity, do you have the advanced training in art that will allow you to urinate on someone's religious icon just so and have art galleries and art "experts" clamoring for your oeuvre?

I can draw a stick figure of MoHamMAD, that's about it. Great idea though, let's see if there are any wacko riots.
.
absurd thought / your supreme God HATES / people drawing pictures / of religious figures / requires RIOTS in response
.
draw not Muhammad / Islamic law can only / apply to Muslims / Muslims not bound by Buddhist / Christian or Jewish doctrine

:)

And after we create our little cartoons, we should upload them onto Youtube. That will give this whole mo cartoon day a little added juice and it will be interesting to see what Googs reaction will be. I am going around to every blog that is talking about this and suggesting it all go up on Youtube in support of Matt and Trey.

Hey, I know: Let's have: "Everybody Scream Stupid Day after watching an episode of South Park (and listening to Dan Savage)!

And, THE EMMY GOES TO JON STEWART FOR: "Most obvious statement"

South Park is juvenile. It's prepubescent male humor in adult bodies. At least Molly Norris is clever and intelligent.
