Comedy apparently isn’t universal

From the NY Times (via Ricks)

An Iraqi reality television program broadcast during Ramadan has been planting fake bombs in celebrities’ cars, having an Iraqi army checkpoint find them and terrifying the celebrities into thinking that they are headed for maximum security prison.

Yeah…Well, call me a stick in the mud but I’m not sure I get the humor here.  I guess it might appeal to a certain demographic (unemployed torturers?  eds.) but really, how far would you take this thing?

Can’t we just send them reruns of Jersey Shore or would that violate the Geneva Conventions?
