Iranian comedy

If I were writing a sitcom in Iran, or Afghanistan, I think I would make a cartoon loosely based on the "Family Guy".  But for a subtle twist I would call it "Daddy Jihadi".

It would be a gut bustingly hilarious cartoon about the daily life of a well manored, yet bumbling and ultimately  unsuccessful fundamentalist terrorist. 

Needless to say, his home life would be just as disappointing as his day at work.  His wife would be a terrible woman, who went outdoors of her own volition, read science books and had girl friends over and complained about her husband.

He would probably have a pet goat that, unbeknownst to him, was a secret agent for Mosad and is vey sucessful at espionage and such like.  Of course it goes without saying that the goat is also unaware that his master is the enemy who's plots are what he subverts every day.

And naturally each episode ends with Daddy Jihadi taking out his frustrations on the goat (in a method left to the imagination of the viewer , but it should result in much bleeting).

The goat probably would have some punchline about why his masters unfair behaviour legitimises his political views.

Anyway, that's the jist of "Daddy Jihadi ".  Look out for it on Fox Sundays.
