There is no Zapiro, only Zuul

If you haven’t sniggered, burped or laughed at the recent Zapiro-Muslim cartoon debacle then you probably had a very pleasant weekend. Other citizens with real jobs, like the Mail & Guardian crew, fielded threats all morning on Friday from irate Muslims incensed by Zapiro’s latest offering depicting their Prophet as a psycho-case needing therapy for his humourless followers.

It didn’t take long before the responses hit the street, or the web. Calls for boycotting a R20 paper, which no one can usually find in most parts of the country, spammed email, SMS and BlackBerry inboxes that soon there would be no Zapiro, only Zuul.

You really need to watch Ghost Busters again.
