Of all the things in the universe that we can't comprehend, particle physics and the sudden fame of ventriloquist Jeff Dunham are running roughly neck and neck.

On last night's episode of his Comedy Central series, his turbaned, incompetent suicide bomber Achmed the Dead Terrorist went to a sex shop, and oh, the hijinx that ensued! With the assistance of a flesh-and-blood plus-sized African American woman Achmed referred to as a "chocolate Easter bunny," Achmed learned about toys and lubricants, culminating in the wide-eyed plea to the woman, "Please don't rape me!" The audience guffaws appreciatively.

It's so funny when Middle Eastern stereotypes are sexually intimidated by big black ladies! I'm beginning to think the Mayans were on to something with that whole apocalypse thing.
