Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!

I wanted to participate in ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!’ but I cannot draw.  After hemming and hawing, and seriously considering enlisting the aid of a certain friend to draw something for me, I decided to exercise my free speech rights by making a collage out of found objects and photographing the result.  The turban is my dish towel, which wiped up bacon grease this morning.  The glasses are US Military Aviator glasses.  The beard is my dirty underwear.

Mohammed, made from a dirty dishrag, US Aviator Sunglasses, and my stinky underwear

I stand with Keith Richards, and join the following proclamation:  “I say to Osama and the boys, ‘Bring it on, evaporate me.’ If it gets to the stage where these guys are dictating if we rock or not, then forget about it.”

POSTSCRIPT:  Thanks to everyone coming from other blogs.  Please feel free to poke around my other posts.  I write mostly about beer, but if that does not float your boat, you may find other items that pique your interest.

POST-POSTSCRIPT:  This is the single best explanation as to why Everyone Draw Mohammed Day is important.

POST-POST-POSTSCRIPT: Iowahawk explains why he will not participate in Everyone Draw Mohammed Day and mock one of the world’s great religions, “one with a proud 1400 year history of art, science, scholarship, and beheadings”

POST-POST-POST-POSTSCRIPT: Another great explanation as to why this is important.

POST-POST-POST-POST-POSTSCRIPT: Welcome SteynOnline Readers!

UPDATE: Still no FATWA against Tilting Suds.  I am disappointed. What does a guy have to do in order to make the list of superbad infidels?

UPDATED UPDATE: While not the Fatwa I am hoping for, Troglopundit has issued a ‘Trogwa’ against Tilting Suds. I am honored, but I am still hoping to get one of those misspelled comments in which the commenter denies the holocaust, equates free speech with insulting a billion people, and tells me that islam is a peaceful religion while simultaneously threatening to behead me for insulting the desert dwelling pedophile he or she believes to be a prophet.

  2. Allahu-F*ckin’-Akhbar baby!!! Thanks for submitting to my site.
    The back and forth between me and one Muslim on my blog is indicative of their stubbornness and inability to accept that other people have rights. Very frustrating. At least he’s being civil…for now.

      Godless monster, no need to censor yourself here. I am cool with you spelling out ‘fucking’.

      Interesting back and forth on your blog. It shows a lack of understanding on his part as to what ‘free speech’ means

  3. Well, at least he’s not being a jerk, just stubborn and childish. He’s not going to listen.
    I’ll be checking in on your blog for some food and brew tips.

    Hi,
    Thanks for commenting on my site. That was one of the most original and best I’ve seen. Allow me to send it to Bonni over at bare naked islam, she is posting on her site what people send her until midnight. Mine is on there. Now will have to hit the rest of your site.

    The perfect twirl of the dishrag shows subtle genius. Smart call on using black underwear, which doesn’t show the stains.

    • seanrude says:

      I am glad you noticed the twirl. I actually put some effort into that part. With that said, there is nothing subtle about my genius.

      Um, you may not want to magnify the photo. Not saying you can see stains, but I am not saying you can’t either.

    am so disappointed to see ur reaction guys .. even if u dont believe in what i believe .. i think u should respect 1.5 billion muslims all over the world .
    respect people who believe in him ..
    regards

    • seanrude says:

      I am not going to thank you for not threatening me, or anyone, because that is the minimum level of civility required before any debate can be engaged in.

      Are you disappointed in your co-religionists who threaten violence and/or engage in acts of violence when others engage in free speech? They are the problem, not us.

      • dee says:

        “Are you disappointed in your co-religionists who threaten violence …”

        Unlikely, he/she instead devotes time, energy and bandwidth to lecturing disrespectful kaffir. Nice priorities.

    I actually tried to do something similar. However, my madras boxers made the prophet look too preppy.

    “Democracy is a man-made system, meaning rule by the people for the people. Thus it is contrary to Islam, because rule is for Allaah”

    http://www.islam-qa.com/en/ref/125853

    Human rights are contrary to Islam: “These so called rights and freedoms which they call for all people to enjoy regardless of religion make the monotheist and the polytheist equally entitled to these rights and freedoms, so the slave of Allaah and the slave of the Shaytaan are placed on the same level, and every worsh…ipper of rocks, idols or people is given the complete right and freedom to enjoy his kufr and heresy. This is contrary to the laws of Allaah in this world and the Hereafter.”

    To use my grandchilren’s expression, “I yike dose” Mohammed “arts”.

  18. Rational says:

    Unfortunately I see that people in general are trying to provoke the Muslim society for some reason, is it jealousy? or is it denial??

    Its food for thought..

    But, hear this, muslims and I am one of them ( Al Hamdullillah), respect other religions and we don’t and would never criticize or in fact try to humiliate religion idols and prophets like who ever is responsible for this.

    For the “so-called-lady” in the video, get your sources right! :)

    And to everyone reading this post I tell you this, we will all meet one day ( Judgment day) and no matter what religion or background you come from you will be there and we will all receive what we deserve and by then it will be too late to ask for mercy… :)

    • seanrude says:

      It is neither jealousy nor denial. Jealousy of what? That your culture peaked a thousand years ago? I will tell you what it is. It is anger that mohammedans like you fail to respect our universal rights to free speech. We can criticize and mock whomever we want. And stop with your lies about respecting other religions. That is simply a lie. You hate Jews, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, etc.

      Did you object to the Fatwa issued against Salman Rushdie? Did you object to the murder of Theo Van Gogh? Why must Ayan Ali Hirsi hide from your fellow mohammedans out of fear for her life?

      I expect answers to these questions.

    • boudicabpi says:

      Hi Rational,
      perhaps this is more to your liking.

    As a Muslim, i say good on you guys for wanting to get out there and get a debate about such a crucial issue. You may think i am taking the piss but i think the time you put into these debates and discussions is amazing. Your passion is somewhat mesmorizing, how so much emotion can be drawn by such a niche topic.

    Draw what you like, paint it sketch it or put a few items together take a photo of it and then spend 7 minutes of your life blogging about it. Sounds like it could last a lifetime. By all means don’t be afraid of these terrorists threatening to take you out because you have decided to give your opinion. Its your fuckin opinion no one can take that away. Fuck them for thinking they could imtimidate us, force us to think twice and even considering the possibility for taking responsibility. Could you imagine what would happen if the world took responsibility. Osama bin laden, its all his fucking fault, that prick he came into the television and they told us again and again. At first i had never heard of him but after a while… after a while i was convinced it was him. His quick though, this cunt can run, and hide and its mostly his fault. One day when all hope is gone we will find him and he will pay for all that he has done. For the minds he filled with bullshit, for the propaganda he spits and for the millions of lives he has taken. Fuck him and fuck you if you ever stood by him or someone like him.

    PEACE sounds cliche these days, but one day what we are attracting will come to our very own doors and the word itself will take on its true meaning. Law of attraction man, they released a book about it remember, Seek and you shall find, ask and you shall recieve. Keeping thinking and asking, don’t ever stop please, because its going to happen with your help.

    I want to give you all something that you take on i hope and maybe next time you can’t find reasoning and don’t wish to educate yourself, Its not that we are hard, its that we have been hardened. You fuckers have made us real tough, like a lifetime of conditioning through mental, physical abuse on a daily basis for hours and hours. Just want to say thank you, its given me the layers needed.

    So wow thanks for reading, i don’t believe i will be wasting much more of life on your site, but feel free to rip it up!

    (peace)

  20. Nothing better than a fishing joke. My friend just shared this joke with me: Fishing rules:Fishing rule #1: The least experienced fisherman always catches the biggest fish. Fishing rule #2: The worse your line is tangled, the better is the fishing around you. Fishing rule #3: Fishing will do a lot for a man but it won’t make him truthful.
