If you don't buy this moronic T-shirt the terrorists will have won

According to PRWeb, where some see in the cartoon fiasco a tragic inability for two cultures to cope with each other responsibly and with compassion, others see a way to make a buck: "MetroSpy's new t-shirts depict an unflattering caricature of the prophet Mohammed with a bomb on his head."

Sweet.

We can only hope there's some double-bonus category for violating another belief system's sanctity while committing one of the seven deadly sins.

Here's the money quote from MetroSpy's resident genius, Nate Thomas: "We can't let the terrorists win. We can not encourage this uncivilized behavior by caving in to their wishes..."

He must be reading his own employer's site: "Failing to print these images mean the terrorists have won." They're goin' like hotcakes (see image above left...). (PRWeb)
