After Charlie Hebdo and Pamela Geller, Prophet Muhammad drawing is amusingly dealt with below by Saturday Night Live. In a picture drawing game, what could a blank canvas be inferred to be–but the Prophet Muhammad himself?
So was the Prophet Muhammad represented by the white square of butcher paper–or not? It strikes me as a way to imply that a person has been represented–even as you take that representation back at the same time (much like a politician who resorts to plausible deniability after making an inflammatory statement without explicitly making it).
So again: does the white sheet constitute the “drawing”–the framing–of the Prophet Muhammad, or not? And if not, why did the contestant get the right answer?
