Dude, you're crimping my afro

How cool is this guy?

I have always said that one of our biggest failings as a people is our inability to make fun of ourselves (and I include myself in that generalisation). While there are a number of exceptions to this sweeping statement (the egyptians for example), this show takes the cake. The humour draws from the mix of different cultures that exists in Iraq and is given substance by the gritty realities of daily life in Iraq, providing a much needed respite from the usual clap-trap. I have not seen an episode yet, but have spoken with a few people who have watched it and am hoping someone will put an episode on YouTube when they get enough bandwidth to upload. I just want to see this guy do his thang.

Sounds well cool - will keep an eye out for it on the net... There are various arabic sites where you can download TV programs (specifically Ramadhan Specials and what not), perhaps I can dig something up for you...

Anyone know of anything in particular?
