It's no "MAGNUM OPUS"....but it ain't that bad either!

So THIS is what all the fuss was about? You gotta be kidding me! This is the Opus Cartoon that might have ...(here's that word again)..."offended" some Muslims. Well, imagine that....Muslim's offended! Berkely Breathed is an Athiest and has also been known to fry up some Christians in his cartoons from time to time. The Washington Post, of course, has never had a moment's pause about "offending" those Christians whenever a cartoon lends itself to do so but, amazingly enough, their "testicular fortitude" fails them when it comes time to be "fair" and "balanced". Along with some 25 other newspapers, they chose not to carry this particular strip.

Well, let it never be said that I didn't have the balls to "offend" a few Muslims because I was afraid of getting bombed. This cartoon isn't that bad. But like many of Berkeley Breathed's cartoons, it isn't all that good either...(sigh). Whatever. Here it is.
