This is such a good idea, for so many reasons...

First annual Everybody Draw Mohamed Day.

Via Dan Savage's blog at The Stranger, some clever chappie (I don't know who) has declared May 20, 2010 "Everybody Draw Mohammad Day," in support of Matt Stone and Trey Parker and in opposition to religious thuggery. Why May 20? I haven't a clue, though it could have something to do with Otto ascending the throne of Greece. Or, more likely, King Sancho IV of Castile's founding of the Study of General Schools of Alcalá.

I will be employing my tremendous skill as an illustrator, of course, and expect that my colleagues will do the same. If they refuse, they will be declared weak-kneed, namby-pamby, quisling infidels and will be shamed on this blog (Though such idle threats rarely work these days; perhaps I could threaten them with a painful death, which seems to do the trick). If readers would like to show their solidarity, please email your Mohammad masterpieces to me here: mmoynihan at The best ones will be published on Hit & Run, which, along with the concomitant death threat, is reward enough.

Once again, regular dudes and dudettes are dragging the Legacy Media by the nose, kicking and screaming. This is getting to be a regular thing, eh?

Uppierdate! Molly Norris, the chick who drew the original cartoon CHICKENS OUT, doesn't want to do it anymore. Too late, ducky! It is ON.
