Considering the controversy that’s been generated and the often vicious debate resulting from the recent contest in Texas to draw the Prophet Muhammad, it might be hard to imagine how anyone could find humor in the situation. However, the comedy crew at Saturday Night Live was able to mine a lot of laughs out of a weekend skit called “Picture Perfect.”
The “contestants” on this SNL make-believe game show were asked to draw an image so their teammates could guess what it was. When the secret challenge was to draw Muhammad, the results were hilarious. For many watching this very clever skit, the takeaway may be the absurdity of the controversy that seems to have intimidated so many in the media in a country where the First Amendment and freedom of expression are fundamental to our way of life.
