That reminds me of that old show Murphy Brown, where Corky the ditzy blonde anchor wasn't allowed to do the stories on the Middle East because she was so dumb she sometimes pronounced "Shi'ite Muslims" as "Sh*tty Muslims". Just one of those funny cultural misunderstandings, no reason why anyone should be offended. Just like how Iranians thought our 1996 Presidential election was really funny because Bob Dole's last name sounds the same as the Persian word for penis. Whattayagonnado.
