    Cool, hip Muslim folk interact with the locals who are not accustom to people from away. I have couple of other ideas.

    Out West a couple gals who are reality TV stars from the Chuch/Wellesly neighbourhood in Toronto bring there show Swinging Hard” to Moose Jaw Saskatchewan.

    Roughneck Pride. 3 unemployed unilngual francgraphic designers from Montreal lose their jobs working for a Montreal Alternative Weekly. The only retraining available at the EI office are as roughnecks out west in the oil patch. Ourthree dudes headed out west squeezed into a 1976 pink Austin-Mini

    I am more than slightly amused by the advertisement that came up in the upper right hand corner when I clicked on this post.

    “WARNING: Do Not Read This If You Have Moral, Ethical Or Religious Reasons Against Hurting (Or Even Killing) Someone Who Violently Attacks You, Your Wife Or Your Kids…”

    Just thought I’d mention it.

    (Rock on, Google Ads. Rock on)

    Terrorists would be more interesting and just as funny.

    What are you saying? Little Mosque on the Prairie is unrealistic because it portrays Muslims as regular people, rather than as the terrorists they really are? Are you serious?
