This cartoon thing has officially jumped the shark

Even thought the phrase "jump the shark" has in fact jumped itself, until someone gives me the replacement idiom for it, I'll still have to use it for this.

Not only has an Israeli comics outfit sponsored an anti-Semitic cartoon contest (yes, "anti"), now Art Spiegelman of Maus fame will be one of the judges.

Actually, this is one of the smartest things Israelis could do. I've always said that freedom of speech is also great because it lets you know exactly which people are the raving lunatics about whom you need to worry. And now, Israel will be able to monitor a whole new crop of anti-Semites. Genius!
