Well, maybe not all that jolly.
Lars Vilks, the creator of the infamous Modoggies, has branched out into a new line of Christmas cards:
The inscription reads: “The Prophet wishes [you] a merry Christmas.”
A much larger version can be seen at Steen’s place.
Update: I noticed that the inscription was in Danish, not Swedish, so I asked Steen why. Here’s what he said:
Trykkefrihedselskabet [The Free Press Society] commisioned the card by Vilks, so he wrote it in Danish. In Swedish it would have been something like Profeten önsker er en glad jul.
Lars Hedegaard’s [chairman of Trykkefrihedselskabet] text goes something like this:
“The Free Press Society has asked Lars Vilks to draw this year’s Christmas card for our members, since the Swedish postal authorities have refused to distribute material containing drawings by Lars Vilks. As one can see, it shows a prophet bringing gifts. Who this prophet is, we do not know, only that he is some prophet.”
Glædelig jul, indeed!
