This is just beyond the pale. Those who know me know that I am a huge fan of the Simpsons (and recently discovered The Family Guy). And I find Homer Simpson to be hilarious and adorable, although his hygiene is quite bad. MBC TV is planning on airing soon an Arabic version of the Simpsons, titled The House of Shamshun (Al Shamshun). I watched a promo segment, and it was just painful. They were so unfunny and so annoying those Arab actors that they brought to play the various characters. And the guy who played Homer Simpson was one of the most unfunny people I ever watched. Just drop the project, and air reruns of Tony Danza's show instead. It is less painful.
