So, if you feel like you have to do something to show your solidarity with Danish cartoonists, you may want to visit SupportDenmark.com. You will find some very helpful suggestions, such as, "Buy Danish products, ask your local politicians to support Denmark, create leaflets, wear a pin with the Danish flag or order the SupportDenmark.com stickers."
For my part, I had a danish for breakfast today. All right, it wasn't actually a danish, but it was in the danish family. Well, to tell you the truth, it wasn't even close to a danish. But it was edible and sweet. Okay, it was huevos rancheros.
Hear me out. Initially, when I woke up, I planned on having a danish with a steaming cup of joe. Well, Gevalia coffee, to be exact, which is Swedish. But Sweden is close to Denmark. As the morning wore on, I found myself in the mood for iced coffee, and pastry no longer seemed like the appropriate choice. So, I opted for something a little more spicy.
But I think I have shown my support in other ways. For example, I will occasionally read Marmaduke, a cartoon about a Great Dane. (See the parallel here?) That is to say, I would occasionally read Marmaduke if our local paper carried it. But I do own a Victor Borge CD, and once I even tried a pinch of Copenhagen tobacco. Okay, so it was Skoal, but close enough. (And no, I didn't inhale.)
Wait...Back to the huevos rancheros for a moment. That's a Mexican dish. And one newspaper in Mexico, La Crónica, reprinted at least one of the Muhammad cartoons in question.
Come to think of it, I also had a taco a couple of weeks ago. I guess I was able to show my support after all! I feel much better now.
