Creators of 'Everybody Draw Muhammad Day' drop gag after everybody gets angry
by Jimmy Orr
"Everybody Draw Muhammad Day?"
As South Park's Sheila Broflovski would say: "What, What, WHAT?"
The outcry from Comedy Central's decision to censor an episode of South Park with depictions of Muhammad last week led a cartoonist and a Facebook user to fight back. That is until they realized it might be controversial, apparently.
In declaring May 20th to be "Everybody Draw Muhammad Day," Seattle artist Molly Norris created a poster-like cartoon showing many objects -- from a cup of coffee to a box of pasta to a tomato -- all claiming to be the likeness of Muhammad.
