Katie Couric says, “We need a Muslim Cosby Show.” We say, “Here are some free ideas, Hollywood.”

by editor on January 3, 2011

Katie Couric, CBS News’ pert and perky anchor came up with an idea:

beverly-hadjis

Don't miss the laughs on the Beverly Hadjis, Mondays at 9/8 Central on MSNBC

“Maybe we need a Muslim version of The Cosby Show,” Couric said. “I know that sounds crazy, I know that sounds crazy. But The Cosby Show did so much to change attitudes about African-Americans in this country, and I think sometimes people are afraid of what they don’t understand…” (see video)

Crazy, Katie? We think not. We think it’s gold. Pure, unadulterated, 24-carat comedy gold. And with that in mind, IHateTheMedia.com has come up with some great ideas for Muslim sitcoms. And we offer them to Hollywood absolutely free of charge.

All we ask is an Executive Producer credit. Is that too much to ask?

1. Everybody Hates Christian (Chris Rock stars as a Muslim teenager growing up in a poor Islamabad neighborhood)

2. Fatwa Knows Best (The Anwar family learns that their father, a Muslim cleric, has a fatwa for every problem)

8. The Really Big Bang Theory (Two Muslim nerds work on a nuclear weapon)

9. That 1370s Show (A wacky band of Muslim teenagers remind us what life was like in the 14th century)

What a douche bag Couric is! Wonder how many Muslims live near her perky home in the Hamptons. Couric-AKA The Perky One gives news bimbos and airheads their bad name.

It helps to make light of a very real and serious problem, but just rmember; while most jokes and jests have an element of truth, these islamic asides have more truth to them than we a willing to admit. With the insanity that passes for leadership in DC, I sure hope we don’t have to scrape a few thousand of our neghbors up off the floor in some big mall or sports stadium and put their ushy gushy parts into bodybags.

I was just wondering in shows (4) 3rd Irag from the Sun and (10) Mork & Mineret , there is a mention of an alien family and an alien culture . Are these legal aliens or illegal aliens ?

Further more , in show #10 Mork and Mineret , what’s going to happen when a hard of hearing extremist , thinks the title is “Pork and Pineret “. Can we safely assume that the possibility of a “Holy” war is upon us , for use of a forbidden term ?

Leave it to Believer – Little brother Thamir, “the believer”, and his older brother Walif, learn important life lessons like the importance of storing dynamite securely in the back seat of the car or it blows up on the way the local military recruitment office. Waqir, the knowing Dad, and Junah, the veiled loving mum, watch over these scamps

I want to paste in an insightful comment from the other thread on this subject, Katie Couric ends 2010 just as stupid as she began it, written by Pericat:

The Cosby show showed that some black americans can live just like white americans, with the same goals, dreams, and aspirations.

It worked because of the underlying, fundamental truth in that. Even the most far-out aspects of it is still a uniquely American thing, and the rest of the world does not share that.

A muslim Cosby show would *never* work, because under the taqqiya covers is enough ugliness utterly alien to Western civilization that it simply will never be compatible with it. Even if people thought it was working, it would only work like propaganda — a mask over an ugly truth that would inevitably reveal itself. Western concepts like a reformation of their religion, or that fundamentally all religions are alike simply do not apply. Tools like Katie can pretend all they want.

Even if muslims would want to create such a show, their own imams would issue fatwa after fatwa against it if any of it were to cause a relaxation in their own dogma.

Prioceless humor. Sadly based in reality.

If only your Will and Grace episode had been for real!! Couric’s premise is, naturally, completely wrong. Here’s a very unfunny stand-up guy who parlayed a bad show and a Jello ad into a career. After telling his fellow blacks how to turn their lives around we now have massive black illegitimacy; 16-35 black males either arrested, jailed, convicted; in prison or recidivists; a DemonRat created black welfare plantation of Medicaid, Medicare, and food-stamps; a matriarchal no-father black family; and a nation of black ‘utes’ who can’t pronounce a simple word like ‘ask’ and a massive HS drop-out rate. I suppose on the plus side he helped staff the NBA and the NFL plus thousands of college basketball team and football team flunkies. Nice job Cos! Everytime I hear Couric’s name I get a mental picture of the guy holding the side of his head and screaming ‘Not this Sh*t again!’

Check your chronology, Doc. The problems you list were endemic in the urban black communities long before Cosby ever said anything. When he said what he said (which was mostly, if not totally, spot-on), he was ignored by the people who needed to hear it, and roundly criticised by the black/civil rights “leaders”

Also, funny or not aside, it was a stand-up career that was parlayed into a show, followed by Jell-O ads.

My Three Martyrs
In this show we would see, via flashback, the hilarious antics of a father trying to teach his 3 young sons to kill in the name of Allah.
The episode where the father accidentally cuts his own finger off while trying to show his sons how to behead someone should get an Emmy.

Don’t forget the old SNL skit, that would never air today, the Bel Arabs.

Listen to the story about a man named Abdul
Poor Bedouin trying to keep his family full
Then one day he was shooting at some Jews
Up from the ground comes a bubbling ooze
Saudi soda
Persian Perrier
