This should be interesting. A few days ago there was a headline that played on First Nation stereotypes. From the reactions that were received, you would have thought someone was tossing a bag of puppies through a wood chipper.

This headline is similar, as it plays on Afghani/muslim stereotypes. Let's see if it generates the same level of outrage...

i wonder if they will allow women in the competition. i love all the death threats the lady who made the final three got for letting her hair fall out and dancing (moving) while singing. I was in Kabul then and remember my afghani staff talking about it.

If you didn't know by now Simon Cowell is known all the world over for making bombs, you must be one of the thirty-six people who own Taylor Hicks's album.

All fine and dandy until the first acid attack on a female contestant.

You know, i'd love to actually SEE that.

Let's have shows that do nothing but show what other countries stereotypical views of them are.

Like "AMerica's got Talent" could have fat white people eating at a buffet yelling about how those mexicans tuk their jurbs and being scared of a random black male walking down the street. Oh and everyone's broke.

/I'd watch that

Will it be any better than "America's got Fat People with Guns" ?

Upon hearing about the TV show America's Got Talent, an Afghan remarked "The show must feature drone-maneuvering, bomb-dropping and water-boarding contests. What else do Americans do?"

Let's hope it works out better than the Russian talent show:

Now maybe the pioneers in Afghanistanimation will get some well deserved recognition.
