breaking down the middle eastern porn barrier that divides us

Albert Brooks has a new film out in which, if I understand it correctly, he travels around India and Pakistan looking for what makes Muslims chuckle. He’s being lauded in some circles as a daring artist because he’s bringing comedy to the post-911 dialogue taking place between people of religion. I don’t know that I’d be heralded as a brave, risk-taking artist, but I just had an idea for a film that would tear down similar barriers. It’s about a Middle Eastern satellite news network run by a pack of insatiable, young journalists. Actually, I don’t really have a plot yet (except for the bit about them being insatiable). All I really have is a name, but I think it’s absolutely brilliant. The film would be called, “al Jizzeera”. (It still needs some kind of subtitle. Let me know if you have any ideas.)

    I’m leaning toward, “These Burkas Need To Be Laundered” as a sub-title, but it’s not too catchy.

    Oh, and will someone please remind me (when we start shooting) that I need to work in this falafel quote from Bill O’Reilly somehow:

    “… I would take your other hand with the falafel thing and put it on your pussy.”
