It’s official, I don’t get Iraqi humor

NY Times describes an Iraqi TV show, “broadcast during Ramadan [which] 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.” Hmmm…Let’s try an ancient Sumerian joke: “Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband’s lap.” With my scientific sample of two items spaced 3600 years apart I can conclude that I do not ‘get’ Iraqi humor.
