Death isn't funny, dead terrorists are...

Went so see comedian Jeff Dunham this past Monday with my wife and some of her coworkers and their husbands.  Funny show, plus Jeff donated $10,000 to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank to help feed the needy in Central Ohio.  He is a ventriloquist and has been plying his craft since the 80's.  One of his most popular characters is Achmed, the Dead Terrorist.  Yep, you read that right, Achmed the Dead Terrorist.  Kind of funny that he made a comedy sketch out of one of this countries most hated stereotypes.

Achmed is a snarling skeleton with some facial hair and a turban on its head.  Turban? Yeah, I guess nobody told Jeff that the scarf Arab terrorists (and just about everyone else) wears in the gulf region is a "shemagh" (most common name) and not a turban.  Sure, there are Terrorists in India too, but again another typical incorrect stereotype by Americans.  Much love to the Sikh warriors out there rocking their turbans!  Anyway, Achmed is supposedly a dead suicide bomber and gets a good portion of the show dedicated to him.  Achmed's famous line when confronted with a question is "Silence!...I kill you!".

Jeff told a story on stage of how he was approached by a woman in Georgia at a show that said her son was a Navy SEAL (honestly, I think every poser in the US will be calling themselves a Navy SEAL  after this war...just like posers claimed to be Green Berets after Vietnam and Rangers after Panama and Somalia).  She told him that why she didn't often know where he was she knew he was in good spirits because he sent her a patch that had Achmeds face in the center and the words "We killed him....now we'll kill you" around the edge!

It was a good show and we even got luxury box seats to boot!  The view was better than the video below makes it out to be.

So lets hear it for dead terrorists!
