<a href="/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=79&Itemid=56">Link back to the article</a>.<br /> <font size=1>(Note: This is original version of article. It may have been edited. Click on link above for most recent version.)<br />(<a href="http://chrisboylan.com/comments">PhpBB Joomla Comments by Chris Boylan</a>)</font><br /><p>Been real busy with the project, still a few days from launch.&nbsp; Last minute bugs and all that.&nbsp; Still had enough time to catch Wednesday's episode of South Park - <a title="Washington Post article" href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/04/13/AR2006041301002.html">Cartoon Wars - Part II</a>. After watching Comedy Central censor an image of Mohammed after an hour of plot highlighting the reasons why doing so is a horrible idea - I went to <a href="http://southparkstudios.com">SouthParkStudios.com</a> - the official site. And I read through the <a href="http://www.southparkstudios.com/show/displayfaq.php?month=2&year=2006">humorous FAQ</a> and saw this:</p><p><div class="mosimage" style="border-width: 0px; float: center; margin: px; padding: px;" align="center"><img src="http://chrisboylan.com/images/stories/superbestfriends.gif" width="400" height="300" hspace="6" alt="Image" title="Image" border="0" /><div class="mosimage_caption" style="width: ; text-align: center;" align="center">On the right is Mohammed uncensored. In Season 5.</div></div></p> <p>Yup.&nbsp; That's Mohammed.&nbsp; On South Park.&nbsp; On Comedy Central. <a href="http://www.southparkstudios.com/show/display_episode.php?season=5&id1=504&id2=69">Season 5 , Episode 4</a>.</p><p>Remember the Super Best Friends?&nbsp; The Superheroes from every religion?&nbsp; Well, Mohammed was one of them and the episode aired without any censorship.&nbsp; And it was hilarious.&nbsp; (David Blaine started a new religion and got the Lincoln Statue from the Lincoln Memorial to come alive and destroy things.&nbsp; So the Super Best Friends stopped him by making a John Wilkes Booth statue.&nbsp; Awesome.)</p><p>I can't believe I'm <a href="http://media.nationalreview.com/094921.asp">agreeing with scads of conservative bloggers</a> - but it was ridiculous to pull images of Mohammed, yet leave a scene of Jesus taking a dump on President Bush and the American flag.&nbsp; Just because people halfway around the world are nuts doesn't mean we have to put our heads in the sand.<br /></p>
