Islamists Torch Pope in Effigy. Again.

The Islamists yesterday were so upset that Pope Benedict XVI had the gall to criticize them for killing Christians that they burned the Pope in effigy, according to Weasel Zippers. At least we think it was the Pope. That's what they're saying but looking at some recent pics of some good ol' fashioned effigy burning and you'll see it's difficult to tell.





OK. This has got to stop. Somebody in the Muslim world needs to step up and procure some skillz at effigy making.

And now that Bush is gone let's face it, they only have one guy to burn in effigy and that's Pope Benedict. So why can't they make a flammable likeness of Pope Benedict? I mean, is it that hard? Do they not have paper mache in the third world?

The Middle East sends their young over to America to go to school to learn how to build bombs, why can't they send one stinkin' guy to take some art classes and learn how to build a model Pope? It shouldn't be that hard.

Something tells me that if they don't improve in their effigy making it won't be for lack of burning the Pope's likeness. Because sometimes it seems that he's the only one willing to speak the truth and they know it.

  1. Hahahah . . . I'm sorry, this article made my day.

    "The Middle East sends their young over to America to go to school to learn how to build bombs, why can't they send one stinkin' guy to take some art classes and learn how to build a model Pope? It shouldn't be that hard."

    Brilliant, Mr. Archbold.

  2. From the pictures, it looks exactly like da Pope. I don't understand all the bitching and complaining.

  3. They look like they're somewhere in the Middle East, but I thought Effigy was in England.

  4. Can't be the pope. When do you ever see Papa Benedetto in a tie and chino shorts(pic 1)? Maybe its a protest against ties and chino shorts?

  5. You'd be mad too if you had no bacon or beer, and had to go out in public in your drawers.

  6. "...why can't they send one stinkin' guy to take some art classes and learn how to build a model Pope..."

    Isn't that encouraging some kind of apostasy or corruption of muslims? I thought making such images was forbidden in Islam? Judging from the photos - apparently not. Where are the mutaween when ya need them?

    At the very least, somebody slap a fatwa on these protesters for making crappy effigies.

    Here's a thought - I propose that we send over to these aesthetically-challenged protestors a few of the people who make those giant ungodly "liturgical" puppets ("Gulps", for short). It might not help the muslims improve their arts and crafts skills, but we're not likely to see those puppeteers again.

  7. I don't believe any of those dummies are the Pope. They don't even look like to Pope. To say they are the Pope is just being vicious, and a weak attempt at inciting fear and hatred. The dummies are just ordinary stupid people who hate the Church and commit crimes against the church.

  8. Can you imagine the stench in that crowd! By the looks of it hygiene is about as high on the list as effigy crafting! The reason they can't "send one stinkin' guy..." is cuz they ALL STINK!!! Whom would they choose...oh the conundrum!

    ...and fly airplanes

    Yes, how dare the Pope suggest a lighter sentence for blasphemy other than death. Wonderful world over there in Islam-land. The hatred that is on display is mind boggling.

  10. That doesn't look like the pope at all. I guess that those medieval savages can't see straight.

  18. I think the first protesters might be burning an effigy of the children's book character Arthur.
