The evil Danish Muhammad cartoons are for sale

Makes me wish I had someone to auction for me. I'd love one. Covers my ugly red-and-blue bedroom walls quite well. (Hey, not my choice of colors.)

COPENHAGEN - A Danish press freedom group said Wednesday it is selling copies of a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad that caused outrage across the Muslim world.

Some 1,000 printed reproductions of a drawing depicting the prophet wearing a bomb-shaped turban are being sold for 1,400 kroner ($250) each, said Lars Hedegaard, chairman of the Danish Free Press Society.

"All we are doing is starting a debate," Hedegaard said. "We are using our freedom of speech."

Hedegaard said Danish artist Kurt Westergaard, who drew the cartoon in 2005, had given the society permission to produce the copies and sell them. Each numbered copy has been signed by Westergaard, Hedegaard said.

"We have not, and are not, breaking any laws," Hedegaard told The Associated Press.

What? A satirical cartoon depicting Islam as volatile, dangerous and intolerant? OMG! Burn those fuckers! How dare they call us dangerous? Burn their embassies and kill the cartoonist!

What is WITH the irony overload this morning??
