Afghanistan getting its own version of 'The Office?'

An inept security guard, a sour-faced secretary and a bumbling Minister of Garbage?

Paging Ricky Gervais, did you know your template for the original British hit show "The Office" is about to be redone again? It seems that way judging by a clip posted on blogs reportedly for a new show in Afghanistan called "The Ministry." The mockumentary tone of the show is just like the British and American version, which stars Steve Carell, but Afghanistan's "The Ministry" will tackle topics more serious than the shows in the West.

ToloTV, a company that began broadcasting in Afghanistan in 2004, will give its audience in the war-torn country "Office"-esque episodes focused on political corruption, the Washington Post reports.

    According to the FBI, those aren't Muslim clerics raypeing your kids at the alter. The agency also reports that over 2,100 American children go missing every day, and that there is mounting evidence to support the theory that American's "make my day" became law NOT because of "terrorists", but because of fellow Americans. The report also cited reasons for owning a handgun and having more than one dead-bolt on your door as a basis for the theory. You people are freaky.

    You pretend to be afraid of "the terrorists", but in reality, yer scared sh/tless of each other. What are you afraid of? I mean, commme on! Look at the average fat-azz "Amrican". Obesity is you! Not me! Oh I get it...you don't notice how fat and lazy the other guy is because you are one too. Now I see why you are afraid of each other. who wouldn't be. "Hey buddy...got 14.7 tril you could loan me? I'm a little short" asks Uncle Sam. China replies "Oh shoooah. ha ha! Maybe you go home now NO PAY!" aaaaaaannnnnnnD that's a wrap! OK boy's. Let's go home. Take it easy Ahkmed.

    Wait! Ahkmed wasn't done. Sure, I was done-over when the freaky's took-out our government instead of taking-out bon Laden because the Taliban refused to allow Bush's 'Carlyle Group' to build piplines on our land so they could sell their Caspian Basin oil to china for 27 bucks per barrel. the freaky's pay 100. Ha ha...who is laughing now. "Those gaddam Arab's are raising the price of gas again...dagnab ragheds"–avg. A merican.
