Mohammed-a-like


Cartoonists! Say goodbye to “Will I get shot six times in the chest and then have my head hacked off with a big knife?” misery with the amazing Mohammed-a-like, new from Nervous Dutchman™ Productions of Amsterdam! Render your most “insensitive” works harmless and satirize with confidence. Book early, while stocks last…

Nervous Dutchman™ Productions would also like to announce the discontinuation of their Christ-a-like, Buddha-a-like and Kosher Rabbi lines with immediate effect, for lack of demand. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Sadly, I don't think anyone knows what the original looked like. It is said that his sweat smelt like perfume, though.

Nifty idea, but what about all those fanatical Achmed followers?

Desargues said...

So you propose cartoonists should draw caricatures of Ahmed instead, Ivan? I wonder who'd wanna see those--I'd rather look at a cartoon of Nancy Pelosi.

Hi Mynah. Chances are he looked like a fairly ordinary bloke for the place and time - beard, bad breath, big robe, and so on. My guess is that it's the nine-year-old wife that really marked him out. At least I hope it did.

Footie, Des, no point arguing with me. It's Achmed who put himself out there, you know. I mean, the guy's got a family to feed and all...

My relative, Mr Gibbon, wrote that according to legend, a shoulder of mutton once informed the prophet that it had been poisoned. You've got to respect a man who can make a piece of meat talk to him.

And how do we know it had really been poisoned? Maybe it just didn't want to get eaten. You'd think that a truly gifted individual would consider the likely motives of his suddenly loquacious lunch.

Should we respect a man who gets outsmarted by a piece of meat? I think we all know the answer...
