Did SNL Rip Off a Canadian Show's Mohammad Sketch?

Steven Crowder thinks they did.

At first, I thought this could just be a case of Mediocre Minds Having the Same Obvious, Meh Idea. (And seriously, I don't know why they say this of great minds.)

It does seem to me to be an obvious enough thing to connect the idea of drawing Mohammad to Win, Lose, or Draw.

But Crowder points out the punchline is also the same.

Well, that punchline is also kind of obvious, but... My goodness, these sketches are identical, aren't they? Except for SNL throwing in some brief, halfhearted celebrity impressions.

Crowder has both sketches here for your comparison.

Some more stuff:

Half of all Democrats now view socialism as equal to capitalism; one third of all young voters favor socialism.

The good news: the socialist media will be hard pressed to deny the Democrats are socialist; the bad: they will anyway. The worse: We're doomed.

Update in the George Zimmerman shooting story: The guy who shot at him was indeed the guy with whom Zimmerman has had an escalating series of conflicts.

As Mahatma Gandhi said, it's time to squash that beef.

Obama has successfully destroyed America's seventy-year system of alliances.

But we got Iran out of the deal. Score.

A British mother talks about the harrowing experience of her son, falsely accused of rape by a serial accuser.

Oh, and just to leave everyone on a positive note. I learned this relaxation trick at my Mind-Body class.

Lie down in a dark place.

Close your eyes.

Begin breathing slowly on a count of three for each long exhale.

Use your fingertips to tip-tap up your cheeks and over your lips.

Now use your fingertips to lightly brush against your teeth.

Doesn't it feel like a huge spider in your mouth?
