Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Swedish Cartoon Rage Rising

We're starting to see protests in Pakistan over Sweden's recent entry into the world of controversial cartooning. It could only be a matter of time before we see our old friend again.

Supporters of the Islamic Shabab-e-Milli youth group burn an effigy of the Swedish prime minister in Karachi August 31, 2007. About 20 members of a Pakistani Islamic youth group protested on Friday over a sketch of the Prophet Mohammad published in a Swedish newspaper, witnesses said. REUTERS/Athar Hussain (PAKISTAN)

For the record, the cartoons were only published in an online newspaper. It's nice to see the Associated Press ratcheting up the ol' Angst a touch with their creative editing. As always, more yummy effigy goodness follows the break.

Pakistan said it had summoned a Swedish diplomat to its foreign ministry on 30 August to protest against a 'blasphemous' cartoon in a Swedish newspaper depicting the Prophet Mohammed. The drawing, showing Mohammed's head on the body of a dog, was drawn by Swedish artist Lars Vilks and published in Nerikes Allehanda newspaper in Oerebro on August 18. AFP PHOTO/Arif ALI

Oh Yeah. They look all a rage.
I wonder if they are just doing that to get attention. But, if so, how would we know?

Oh yeah. Silly me. I forgot about the truth-in-sentences photographers.
