South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone got in trouble for daring to thumb their noses at Muslims by lampooning the prophet Muhammad — and Comedy Central decided to pull the plug. Let me rephrase that: Cowardly Central decided to pull the plug.
This is America. If South Park or any other show chooses to picture Adolf Hitler on a ride at the new Harry Potter theme park, so be it. And so, I am doing my small part by running this disrespectful picture of the prophet Muhammad:
I vaguely recall all of the huffing and puffing back in 1992 when Irish singer Sinead O’Connor got everyone’s panties in a bunch by tearing up a photo of Pope John Paul II on Saturday Night Live. O’Connor said she was protesting sex abuse within the Catholic Church. Back then, a lot of us thought O’Connor was some bald nutcase. Saturday Night Live apologized for O’Connor the following week, but now it looks like a lot of us should be apologizing to her.
Last night I was watching the news and O’Connor once again surprised me. She thanked the American media for getting on the Vatican’s case about child abuse. Let me repeat that: “She thanked the American media.” Wow. I don’t believe I’ve seen that happen before.
The NFL just wrapped up its annual draft. Is there anything on God’s green earth more absurd than the hoopla over this non-event?
Oh, and that’s Randy Moss pictured above. Moss was not a draft pick this year, but I’ve been looking for an excuse to run this picture. You’re welcome.
