Sus, remember the US border crossing on our way to buffalo? I think, I not only enunciate, I start to ramble, I let them feel sorry for me by sounding stupid.

Yeah well, stupidity works on the American people. Look who their president and republican candidates (McCain & Palin) are. God Bless America!

p.s. No offence to my American readers. I just want you to choose the smart guy over the creepy ol' dude.

And still looking I'm afraid, although I rarely get "Muslim comedy" so perhaps it's just me.

Shak,
Some would call Little Mosque a Muslim comedy.

Personally, I think the reason I like his comedy is because he's highlighting the social prejudices with a twist of humour. It would be a lot harder for him to just stand there and say "Yo, listen up, you are racially profiling Muslims." So we need people like him in the media to sort of address the mainstream misonceptions.

People like Chris Rock have discussed racial discrimination and prejudices through their comedy in the past too.

Sorry for being a total killjoy, and turning this into a political/social commentary.
