Israel tour guide

I love how the caption writer felt the need to pinpoint the location of the tour guide as if you could confuse the crazy-hair guy in the center for a palestinian or policeman.

Come to think of it, I knew Sacha Baron Cohen played an Israeli tour guide for an episode of The Simpsons, but I didn’t realize it was a live action episode with Cohen dressed as Bruno.

But seriously, could you imagine the kind of tour that guy would take you on?

And here on your right is the ghost train. It will take us to our next stop where we’ll sacrifice a lamb to the lord of darkness before going to tonight’s Metallica concert.

Update: Speaking of The Simpsons in Israel, it looks like the episode is going to be hilarious.

Update: You can watch the entire episode here.
