Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World
I have to give Albert Brooks kudos for having the esferas do touro*
(as K-FED would say) to make a film
about laughing at/with/beside/nervously the Muslim culture. I havent seen it yet, but I'm very curious now... It appears there is no
humor in the Islamic world when it comes to any topic about Islam itself. Take the Danish cartoon
for example (see below). Its not even a good
cartoon - I don't really even get myself. But the Muslims are furiously mad about it. Calling for a jihad, closing embassies and protesting by the 10's of thousands. Now, I'm not sure but I think these people are just looking
for a reason to fight. We're talking about a cartoon for Muhammad's sake! These are the same people that call America 'the land of Satan' but they're pissed about a cartoon(?). This should worry everyone because if a cartoon (without even a witty caption I might add) is driving this kind of global Muslim anger, I'm pretty worried about what's yet to come from this growing and dangerous religion... I just hope they don't bomb us because of Albert Brooks...
* Bull's Balls The offending 'cartoon'. I have some suggested captions. You may choose your own.
1) "oh, I feel an immense headache coming on!"
2) "sniff, sniff... do you smell
3) "What a long day .... I'm ready to blow this place!"
4) "Right, sure. I have a 'bomb in my hair'
! Ha Ha. Like I'm gonna fall for that joke again!"
