The Globe Drops Opus Again

For the second time, the Globe declined to run Opus in the Sunday comic pages.  No explanation.  No comic.  The good news is that through the magic of the internet, we all can see what the Globe was so loathe to put on our doorsteps..

Admit it.  You can’t figure out what the problem is.  Me either.

Fox has an article about the dropped photos. “Lago said she flagged some of the syndicate’s newspaper clients for two reasons: because of the possibility that the jokes about Islam would be misconstrued and because of the sexual innuendo in the punchline.”  Jokes about Jerry Falwell or Hare Krishnas are  OK, but jokes about Muslims are not?

Here’s my post about the first dropped comic.  I found out about the second one from Squaring the Globe.
