Mo-dogs bark, Swedes bite back.

Lars Vilks, the cartoonist from Sweden who doodled up a dog-hammed, was giving a talk this fine day on free speech at a university in Upsalla when, as we see in the following video, a group of Muslims attacked him for it. First, a fine still from the movie. Better than Bergman, in my opinion, and I do know my fine art.

This is some variation on the famous Swedish dish, the pepper meat-blob, I guess. Looks tasty to me. Excuse me while I continue to laugh. Video and numerous pithy comments at Jihad Watch.

Vilks has been the target of numerous threats over his controversial drawing of Muhammad with a dog's body, but Tuesday's incident was the first time he has been physically assaulted. Earlier this year, Mr Vilks was the target of an alleged murder plot involving Colleen LaRose, an American who called herself "Jihad Jane".
The Vilks cartoon was published about a year-and-a-half after a series of depictions of the Prophet Muhammad in Denmark caused protests by Muslims around the world.
In 2007, a group linked to al-Qaeda in Iraq offered a $100,000 reward for killing Vilks, and a 50% bonus if he was "slaughtered like a lamb" by having his throat cut.

And now, It's Show Time, folks.
