A Top Ten Challenge

January 24, 2015 5 comments

We put out a call on episode 100 for a listener with some image-manipulation skills to create our “top ten fun ways to depict Mohammed using Photoshop” and one listener in particular took the baton and ran.  In fact, within hours of the episode’s release, he’d sent a commendable effort at all ten of our suggestions.

The pics he sent are below the fold, but I feel the need to warn even our loyal listeners that we don’t recommend using these pictures as wallpaper for your work computer.  And if you do, be smarter than me, and change it out before you let the Muslim tech support guy take over your laptop to work a bug out of it.

Thanks Don!
