    Funnyman ventriloquist Jeff Dunham is fuming after a ringtone advertisement based on his popular comedy skit, "Achmed the Dead Terrorist," was scrubbed from South African TV because it mocks Islam.

    The ringtone was taken from a puppet routine performed by Dunham, a native Texan, in a TV special on Comedy Central. A 10-minute clip of the comedian's routine that was posted on YouTube has been viewed more than 66 million times since April.

    The Fox story links to the iafrica.com story as well.

    Just thought I'd throw this out there. I think Achmed is hilarious, and no more offensive to Muslims then Walter is to senior citizens.

    Good parting shot.

    His dog's name is Bill. Considering Muslims' attitudes towards dogs, I have to wonder if it was meant to be a more scalding parting shot than it first appears.
    OPEACHMENT NOW!!!

    Good to see Jeff's a man of principle; I've been laughing at his work since I saw his standup on TV years ago and this ban is more idiot junk from the PC police.

    Side note: Do they even have cell phones in Africa? All my tax dollars going to foreign aid...if they're using it to buy Sidekicks I'm going to be so pi$sed.:mad:

    Laughing at (not with) these murderous Bastards is the start of a healthy recovery for the US and world. These humorless thugs deserve the Hell we're sending them to and I feel much better knowing our citizens are laughing at them rathering than cowering in fear.

    Well, in the hilarious Christmas routine they did, Achmed does say that U.S. troops killed him. Or, rather, he sings it! See, Achmed sings to Jeff his favorite Christmas carol, "Jingle Bombs," which is apparently all about how he died. As the song goes, he was planning a suicide bombing, and was driving on his way to the site to do it, but got discovered at one of the checkpoints, and the U.S. soldiers wasted him.

    Am i the only one old enough to remember Ahab the arab?

    Ray Stevens had a huge comedy hit with this. I was living in Lebanon and I heard it blaring from radios all the time. Things have sure changed.


    Let me tell you bout ahab the arab, the sheik of the burning sand,
    He had emeralds and rubies just a-dripping off a him and a ring on every finger of his hand.
    He wore a big old turban wrapped around his head, a scimitar by his side
    And every evening about midnight he'd jump on his camel named clyde.
    And ride silently through the night to the sultans tent
    Where he would secretly meet up with fatima of the seven veils.
    She was the swinginest number one dancer in the sultans whole harem.
    It was like him and her they had a little adam going, you see,
    Behind the old buggers back.
    And you could hear him talking to his camel
    And as he rode out across the dunes past the oil wells
    His voice would cut through the still night desert air
    And hed say, maaaaaaa oyy oyy oyy !!!
    Which is arabic for oh, baby ...
    And clyde would say, yewrah raaaoww uh uh uh uh uh!

    Well, he brought his camel to a screeching halt at the rear of fatimas tent,
    Jumped off clyde, snuck around the corner and into the tent he went.
    There he saw fatima laying on a, on a zebra skin rug,
    With rings on her fingers, bells on her toes and a bone in her nose, eeeeyye.

    There she was friends and neighbors, laying there in all her radiant beauty,
    She was eating on a raisin, had a grape, and an apricot, and a pomegranate,
    A bowl of chitterlings, two bananas, three hershey bars, four burritos,
    Sipping on a frozen margarita, listening to a transistor radio,
    Watching the grand ole opry, reading rolling stone magazine and singing rocky mountain high.
    And ahab walked up to her and he said, yeeeiiaaaahowowhidehowdihi!
    Which is arabic for, lets boogie again like we did last summer, baby.
    And she said, oh, ahab, ah ha uh, ahab. crazy, baby.

    And thats the story about ahab the arab, the sheik of the burning sand,
    He had emeralds and rubies just a-dripping off a him and a ring on every finger of his hand.
    He wore a big old turban wrapped around his head, a scimitar by his side,
    And every evening about midnight hed jump on his camel named clyde ..
