Anti-Danish Rage, Indonesian Edition

See? What'd I tell you about news taking a while to travel around the world? Indonesia has finally chimed in on the current Muhammed-printing outbreak in Denmark. Better late than never, right?

I'm not sure about this week, but if this news keeps spreading, we may be up against the bestest "Day of Rage (and puppies)" ever by the week after.

Many thanks to Lawhawk for pointing this little shin-dig out. I've got more photos beyond the fold, as usual!As an aside, I should point out that while I constantly make fun of these perpetual "days of rage" throughout the world, they did lead to 6 deaths when they got into full swing last time. There really isn't anything funny about that fact in and of itself, but hopefully by continuing to highlight and poke fun at this continual rage, we will disarm it—Think of this as dealing with a bully; if you ignore him, he'll get bored and go away. Radical Islam, of course, being the bully here.

All that out of the way, let's proceed with our Traditional Day of Rage, which so far appears to be pyrotechnic-free. (Seriously, what kind of fun is that?)

You probably haven't noticed this, but many muslims have serious issues with rage.
