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.
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-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.

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.
