It's OK. Humor is allowed as far as I am concerned...

Who gets to decide what counts as humor?

I for one find the Pussy Riot performance immensely funny. Well, not so much the performance itself as the reaction of the audience. But as any good performer will tell you, the reaction of the audience is a part of the performance.

I hope it's not in a hands of "progressive" bunch only...

reaction of the audience

There was different reactions but it seems you have seen just that one you liked or that one that has been presented by "free" western media.For them in order to catch reaction of opponents of this act they must make big public protest...to be seen.

That's not an answer.

Who gets to decide what counts as humor, and is thus protected from the ayatollahs' blackout ink?

I like this caricature. It makes me smile. If your intent is to offend... you're going to have to try a lot harder!
