It's like being invaded by the Three Stooges


Egyptians are so offended by the cartoons of Mohammed that Egypt refuses to take money from Denmark; but not to be outdone, Saudi Arabians are refusing to take insulin. Boy, that'll show those Danes.

The Egyptian parliament's Economic Committee refused to discuss a $72.5 million loan from Denmark to Egypt, with newspapers quoting lawmakers as saying they do not want to cooperate with a country that has insulted the prophet.

Hardest hit by the boycott was Danish-Swedish dairy product maker Arla Foods, with annual sales of $487 million in the Middle East. The world's biggest maker of insulin, Novo Nordisk, also said it was affected.

Great cartoon! I love it! I wonder if the foot is something offensive in ME culture (as it is in oriental cultures). I bet it is:>) LOL!

Silver linings. We can save a lot of money by not sending aid to the ME. And the companies that sell to the ME, might want to re-think that strategy. American companies are constantly getting "screwed" by the Chinese when they invest in China (copy right infringement, etc).

Mohammed's face planted on a camel's arse is just the kind of non-violent resistence we need. It's harsh, it's mean, it's time for Muslims to wake up and smell the --roses.

Thanks to those who sent things in. There are more to come. I'm not always identifying contributors for obvious reasons. Me? I must be bullet proof or stupid.

Yeah, I'm bullet proof. That's it.
