On Garry Trudeau, Charlie Hebdo and Mohammed Cartoons


Jesus had a knack for caricature, too, and his more controversial cartoons poked fun at the foibles and peccadilloes of the prophets. Even Mohammed was amazed by the way Jesus could capture his likeness with just a few bold lines.  

But Mohammed soon grew weary of being ridiculed in pen and ink, and, some say, because he lacked the artistic ability to respond in kind, he publicly declared his own absolute perfection was something Jesus had absolutely failed to depict.
