Our friend Stogie, a cartoonist and one of the finest writers I've ever read, reminded me that he did the first ever "Mo at the beach" back on:
Tuesday, February 07, 2006I'm really happy to see this. It brings back good memories.
The bloggers at infidel-bloggers-alliance are having a cartoon contest for depictions of Mohammed. Now drawing Mohammed could get you killed because murder is one of the main pillars of that religious faith. Check them out at http://ibloga.blogspot.com/
Cartoonists are asked to draw a non-incendiary picture of the prophet Mohammed, just doing everyday things like taking a walk, having a beer, watching the Super Bowl, etc. I drew one of Mo on a surfboard. Mo-Daddy ain't no Ho-Daddy. Anyway, my entry is below.
Stogie's account of walking past the Beemer house is one of the high points of my reading experience.
But, says me before I was scooped and reminded of it:
I was snooping around the sub-basement at the local archives today and to my complete amazement I saw a box of old vacation photos that came from Medina, Arabia. I took a peek, and there, lo and behold, was a shot of Mohammed at the beach with a couple of babes on each arm. They were stark raking nekked, so I cut them out and left Mohammed himself so as not to offend anyone; and here I present to the world the one and only prophet Mohammed in the photo'd flesh at the beach on vacation at Medina, c. 625 A.D.
