I’ll See Yours And Raise You Two

Oh boinky, more anti-islamic backlash!

Yesterday - pretty much from out of nowhere - was “Draw Mohammed Day”, as a backlash against the Comedy Central Network’s decision to edit out the Mohammed bits from an episode of the South Park cartoon.

After Comedy Central cut a portion of a South Park episode following a death threat from a radical Muslim group, Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris wanted to counter the fear. She has declared May 20th “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day.”

Norris told KIRO Radio’s Dave Ross that cartoonists are meant to challenge the lines of political correctness. “That’s a cartoonist’s job, to be non-PC.”

Producers of South Park said Thursday that Comedy Central removed a speech about intimidation and fear from their show after a radical Muslim group warned that they could be killed for insulting the Prophet Muhammad.

The group said it wasn’t threatening South Park producers Trey Parker and Matt Stone, but it included a gruesome picture of Theo Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker killed by a Muslim extremist in 2004, and said the producers could meet the same fate. The website posted the addresses of Comedy Central’s New York office and the California production studio where South Park is made.

Not threatening? That’s about as blunt a threat as could be.

So Norris made her drawing, and it went totally viral. I was sent it 11 times in emails, along with several other Draw Mo renderings. Like this one ( thanks C ! ):

Which is a “test pattern” done by Chris Muir ... the guy who does the Day By Day cartoon over here on the sidebar ... who gave blanket permission to spread it around. I’m working on my own drawing, or graphical rendition, but I’m having trouble balancing the burning fused turban on the dog poop.

Says Norris now,

I made a cartoon of a ‘poster’ entitled “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!” with a nonexistent group’s name—Citizens Against Citizens Against Humor—drawn on the cartoon also. I did not intend for my cartoon to go viral. I did not intend to be the focus of any ‘group’. I practice the first amendment by drawing what I wish. This particular cartoon of a ‘poster’ seems to have struck a gigantic nerve, something I was totally unprepared for. I am going back to the drawing table now!

Get out there and draw your own, and hang it up where everyone can see and be offended.



BUT IT GETS BETTER!

That little bit of screwball islam news I posted on last week - the part where their top rattle shaker says that sexy women cause earthquakes - has also gone viral. Lots of folks saw it, posted it, and noted that these folks are batshit crazy. One blogger set out to prove them wrong, and to take a scientific approach to it. Blag Hag jokingly came up with the idea that today should be BOOBQUAKE DAY, and that she was planning to wear something ... um, uplifting and revealing ... to dare seismic retribution. The idea went nearly as viral, and spread all over facebook and Twitter in a flash.

On Monday, April 26th, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. Yes, the one usually reserved for a night on the town. I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts. Or short shorts, if that’s your preferred form of immodesty. With the power of our scandalous bodies combined, we should surely produce an earthquake. If not, I’m sure Sedighi can come up with a rational explanation for why the ground didn’t rumble. And if we really get through to him, maybe it’ll be one involving plate tectonics.

So, who’s with me? I may be a D cup, but that will probably only produce a slight tremor on its own. If you’ll be joining me on twitter, use the tag #boobquake! Or join the facebook event!

Nearly 70,000 fellow seismic researchers signed up in a matter of hours, and her inbox was run over with a few hundred thousand emails. McGoo and several other male bloggers want to play along and are posting more nekkid ladies than usual. Or ladies who are more nekkid than usual. Something like that. Notice that Day By Day, still over on the right sidebar, is also playing along.

I think the BoobQuake event is being held too early. You want to cause earthquakes, you have to move mass. That means at least half a million participants physically, and another 2 million digitally. Or, as all us science geeks know, harmonic repetition can serve to multiply amplitude. So I’m declaring that BoobQuake last not just one day, but a full week. And I’ll do my part. Let’s see if this will topple Tehran.

[ sorry, I had to remove the bouncies - I am trying to fix a display issue some folks are having with shitty old IE ]

Shield your eyes! Evil women behaving provocatively!!
below the fold: NSFW film snip of Meena Suvari trying her best to to cause tremors

[ updated update: Meena got pulled. Sorry.
update: fold removed ... actually nudity on the front page OMFG!!! ... I’m trying to kill an IE problem some folks are having ... ]

Oh hella yeah. I can feel the groundswell already.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
