Mocking Muslims with Pink Plush Novelty Toys

posted by on December 4 at 15:11 PM

In response to the fiasco that flared up around Gillian Gibbons—she’s the British schoolteacher jailed for allowing her class of Sudanese schoolchildren name a teddy bear “Muhammad”—the American evangelist Bill Keller produced the above video, in which a stuffed pig named Muhammed realizes the evil of his Allah-loving ways.

Crazy fundamentalists making fun of other crazy fundamentalists is my new favorite art form.

In more important news, that British schoolteacher is now safe at home in the UK.

Phew. I wasn't going to stop worrying about this one until they actually got her out of the country alive. I kept worrying she'd get shot on her way out of the country.

So, who steps up to the plate, and makes the video where Muhammed discovers rationalism and intellectual curiosity, and becomes and atheist? After being buggered by a youth pastor, of course.

Isn't it ironic that they refer to "Muhammad" as a "murdering pedophile"?

Yeah, as long as you are in the UK you're safe from Islamic extremists. Or the US. They can't get here.

Boo ya, motherfuckers! Boo ya!

And the "let's mock our otherly-religious brothers using their own religious symbols" comes full circle, from the left using hysterical (really!) take-offs on fish to fuck with the Ichthys symbol, now to Christians using badly-animated stuffed animals. Such an evolution of debate.

Yes Mohammad- you fuzzy little crucifix wielding pink pig! Forget about the Arabian Nights fairy tales of the Quran and exchange them for the “grim” fairy tales of Jesus! Yay!

Suicide Food! It's everywhere!

Whatever may be said for or against Islam, they do prohibit the eating of pork. A Islamic pig converting to Christianity is therefore just a short step away from eating itself.

I wish I was God.

mohammed a murdering pedophile? quran is a book of fairy tales? muslims as sinners, just for believing?

this is creepy. i wish this were satire.

Seeing the pig, I immediately thought that if not offensive, this was at least going to be done in some sort of slapstick and funny voice. After all, its a pig! wearing a crucifix i.d. eartag!

I was sorely disappointed. I like my religious bigotry and intolerance with a little bit of humor and fun. Bill Keller, you are fooling no one.

"I came to understand the Koran was a collection of fairy tales"

Like the bible?

Posted by K X One | December 4, 2007 9:19 PM

Uh, they refer to "muhammed" not "muhammad". Is this to save their sorry little asses by virtue of a misspelling?

Posted by idaho | December 5, 2007 12:06 AM

Ah yes, because this sort of knee-jerk stupidity is exactly what we need to counter the other kind of knee-jerk stupidity...

so yeah, this video makes complete sense up to the part where the pig adopts christianity. throw off one book of fairy tales for another little pig. abandon one murdering pedophile, for a god who once killed everyone on the planet with a flood, destroyed two cities for sinning, and killed the firstborn child of every Egyptian, just to make a point. But oh wait, never mind, he's a loving god.

"...and after I accepted the truth of Christianity, God's people slit my throat, hung me upside down and then roasted me in celebration of their saviour's ressurection.

I'm so glad I found Jesus!"

I don't know about you, but I'm in the mood for ribs!!!......

The Koran as fairy tales?
And what is the Bible if not fairy tales?
Now, don't give me this 'word of God" fairy tale.
