Associated Press, BBC, ABCNews love FN and AndWhat!

The image of Dora the Explorer by Andwhat is making rounds on the web in the light of the recent Arizona law (with comments like "OMG, they got Dora!") and became so famous that we got contacted by Associated Press who wrote an article featuring this chop. Associated Press also called Andwhat and she gave a short interview about her chop.

When I asked the AP editor how they heard about this image she said that it was texted to her after it was used on a protest sign in a rally.

Some links to the AP articles:

Linky 1

Linky 2

Linky 3

Linky 4

UPDATE: BBC news and ABC news featured this image too and mentioned FN.

Congrats Andwhat!

This Dora pic wasnt even very good,lol.Nobody knew it existed before the Arizona Law blew up.A lot of people assumed it was an anti-immigration statement.I guess, cause anti-immigration peeps blew the pic up and were using it at their rallys.The contest was done in december,way before the arizona law debate even began.I am against the Arizona law,but some of these news organizations thought i was making some kind of racist statement.It's kinda crazy,but im glad they clarified my position in their articles.I am not anti-immigration.As an independant i fall more on the liberal side of this debate,but i would never want to be classified as a liberal.Im just a gal who often times does(sub-standard)chops for a freakishly awesome site called FN.

Amazing how much an innocent chop can stir up the masses. Before I even read the caption I said to myself, "I bet that came from FN." Lord knows what else they'll find in the FN collection from years past to resurrect into a current news story now that the AP is surely poking around now. Ahhhh I love contoversy, great work! Your my hero! LoL

P.S. Do you guys remember back when Wall-e got caught exposing himself on Beta5-Gamma? That was some controversy there, he's not allowed within 500' of a school zone now. Pretty much ruined his career, hopefully Dora can overcome this setback. I hear George Lopez will be speaking on her behalf during the pending trial.

Wall-e arrested for indecent exposure.

lol killerbee,that Walle mugshot you did was hilarious.walle sure was embroiled in a salacious controversy over that.The public will eventually forgive Dora,and hopefully she wont be deported,and George Lopez will surely help.

I am being hated on.You should see what people are writing about me.In blogs,forums and comments.Every mother in America wants to strangle me.They even found my Myspace page.People dont realize this was just for a photoshop contest.They think i am trying to make an anti-immigration statement,and corrupt their children.Some sites wont even show the image,citing it to be too graphic.I mean this is totally absurd.I am against the Arizona law,but they dont want to hear that.They just want to hate on me.I got some harassing phone calls,so now they have my home,and my cell phone number.I mean damn people,nobody gave a rats backside about this thing,till the Arizona law thing heated up.I keep telling people,this was done in december of last year,but they wont listen.They are making this into some kind of conspiracy or something.Some people are even calling for my arrest,and saying i need to be shot. GOOD TIMES,you know,damn.
