I Am Lars Vilks  

Friday, September 21, 2007

From Leftbanker:

Lars Vilks is the Swedish artist who drew a cartoon of Mohammed with the body of a dog. Al Qaeda has put a $100,000 price on his head. Muslims can be touchy fuckers at times. I think that what everyone in the West should do is draw their own caricature of the prophet and publish it. Everyone! Just like when John F. Kennedy declared, “Ich bein ein Berliner,” we should all declare ourselves to be Lars Vilks. I am a terrible artist, as you can see, but I think that it’s the thought that counts. It’s difficult to tell whether the body is a rat, a dog, or a squirrel.

This is what everyone should have done when the Danish cartoons came out and Denmark was targeted with protests and all sorts of hate from Muslims around the world. If every newspaper published the cartoons it would be a little difficult for those offended by such childishness to decide who to go after. I fully expect some Al Qaeda dipshits to take flying lessons (not bothering to attend landing classes) so they can fly a plane into their computer and kill me.

So, here is my poorly drawn entry:

And as an equal opportunity, crappy artist, here's the FSM:

    Hi. That is a hard-hitting post!
    But these guys who fly planes into people are crazy you know. Psychos is how I see them. violent, crazy bandits. I mean even if someone is offended by a cartoon, he can always draw another cartoon, to offend the other or perhaps write something insulting...but anyone who uses murder is obviously cracked. It is not possible to reason with these people, its best to get the army and the police to catch them and put them behind bars for life.

    I never did get to see what the cartoon was.
    Yours looks a little like a dinosaur. Dinosaurs are pretty cool, certainly nothing to be murdered over. It's not like you put his head on a chihuahua!
    What's FSM?

    Yeah, I thought they looked a bit like dinosaurs too, but that's my crappy art (I cringe to all it art) for you!

    FSM is the Flying Spaghetti Monster (http://www.venganza.org/about).

    Hahaha, you are a true artist :)

    I think it's pretty silly to be offended over a cartoon. I mean, seriously, how many silly things have we seen like that about Jesus? Yet no Christian (that I know of) has bothered to put a reward on the head of the people who do it.
