The Electric Commentary

Mmmm, Chutney.

The Simpsons are now in Arabic:

An Arabized "Simpsons" -- called "Al Shamshoon" -- made its debut in the Arab world earlier this month, in time for Ramadan, a time of high TV viewership. It uses the original "Simpsons" animation, but the voices are dubbed into Arabic and the scripts have been adapted to make the show more accessible, and acceptable, to Arab audiences.

Homer is now "Omar Shamshoon," and he doesn't eat bacon or drink beer. That's just perverse. I wonder how they treat Apu.
