*Britney, NBC plan to mock crucifixion: In ‘Will & Grace’ role, she plays Christian doing cooking segment called ‘Cruci-fixin’s’/WorldNetDaily — Will I get the lynch mob after me again if I admit that I’ve never watched “Will & Grace”?

*Muhammad-cartoon controversy heats up: Newspapers across Europe reprint caricatures in support of Danish publication/BBC News — A dare the, ahem, brain trust at “Will & Grace” to poke fun at Muhammad rather than Christ, and see what happens. Make that double dog dare.
