They’re at it again down at South Park:-

Parker and Stone were angered when told by Comedy Central several weeks ago that they could not run an image of Mohammed, according to a person close to the show who didn’t want to be identified because of the issue’s sensitivity.

What is disturbing is that Comedy Central’s decision is seemingly being influenced not by religious sensitivity (the same episode contained unflattering depictions of Jesus) but by threats of violence. Giving in under these circumstances is sending out the wrong message.

Anyway, it’s obvious that television is becoming too restrictive for what the South Park team want to do. Maybe they should consider a move onto the web, as a Flash animation or something similar. A kind of X-Rated Homestar Runner, in fact.
