This is an uncensored clip from a recent episode of South Park where they show the Prophet Muhammad. Comedy Central refused to air the scene, which the youtube.com poster claims is fake, but which I believe, having seen the rest of the episode, is authentic. The rest of the two-part episode is on the site if you're interested in seeing it (they really tear into Family Guy, which Trey Parker and Matt Stone are known to loathe), but please take note of how benign the portrayal of Muhammad is, especially compared to both what they show at the end of the episode (found here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sL9DL0k8UpE&search=south%20park ) and the Danish cartoons that started the controversy in the first place. A number of very sharp, intelligent points are made throughout the episode about the issue, so I believe it's well worth watching.
