You know, the only thing remotely offensive about all these caricatures of Muhammad that cause such a stir is how the grand majority of them are so piss-poor, really. It’s insulting to cartoonists everywhere! (Of course, Muhammad himself can go sniff butts, chase his tail and lick his own ass like a good little doggie.)
Disabled 5-year-old boy with prosthetic leg bullied and beaten on school bus. Logical response: he and his sister are banned from riding the bus. Nice work, Saskatchewan Prairie South School Division board.

Whenever a guy says that women can’t drive/park, are clean-freaks, are wimps, talk too much, can discern 30+ shades of white too many and can’t take their booze … well, okay, ladies should totally clobber sexist idiots like that.

Lars Vilks, a Swedish artist known for his now-infamous depictions of Mohammed as a mangy cur (pictured above), was attacked whilst giving a lecture. Better yet: a lecture on free speech. Better still: al-Qaeda is offering over US$100,000 to anyone who murders him. Dear reader, do free speech (and kicking these bloodthirsty assholes right where it hurts) a favor and spread the pic, above, as far as you can.
