FROM THE EDITOR - Our first Imagine Mohammad Day was a solid win, with thousands of readers from around the world quietly envisioning what the Prophet looks like. Our famed Hollywood psychics, who prefer to remain anonymous, had quite a chore choosing winners, who also preferred remaining anonymous. Using rigorous subjective guidelines, the psychics selected three. See if they match up to your thoughts.
3. A man in Lutefisk, Norway saw the Prophet as John Goodman in Raising Arizona only dressed like someone from a Vegas floor show version of Scheherazade.
2. A former twin in Limpopo, Congo imagined Mohammad as a cute baby hippo eating 40 to 50 melons.
1. An active member of New York City's Revolution Muslim website pictured the Prophet Mohammad dressed as a Girl Scout (with a Computer Fun badge) on a flying horse, dispensing chocolate mint cookies from a box inscribed with the crescent moon and sword.
Second and third place winners receive a year's subscription to the Interesting News Items print edition, currently in the conceptual stage. First place winner receives an all-expense paid imagined trip for seven to Quito, Ecuador. Thanks to all who engaged in anonymous imaginings. Start thinking for 2011 when we'll add a special challenge!
