128. About offensive cartoons

The major Iranian newspaper is getting back at the Danish newspapers by having a contest to see who can come up with the most offensive cartoon on the Shoah. One example they had had Hitler and Anne Frank in bed together, obviously just having had sex, while Hitler smokes a cigarette and says "Write this in your diary, Anne". I don't want to put a copy here because it is offensive, but if you want to see it you can go to an article about offensive cartoons which shows it at because they wish to give the same publicity to this offensive cartoon as the Moslems are giving to the ones they find offensive.

It's not so much offensive as it is stupid. There's no real point being made by the cartoon, so it's just like a five-year old spewing curses to get a rise out of people.
well put (although stupid and offensive are not mutually exclusive)
