Note to Al Jazeera: For the Love of God, Please Stop Interviewing Nouri Masood El Mesmari
Future Cobra Commander/“Die Hard” Baddie Nouri Masood El Mesmari relaxes between spittle-flecked outbursts.
Earlier this week, Nouri Masood El Mesmari, Muammar Gaddafi’s Secretary of Protocol, resigned from office and called for Gaddafi to be deposed. Now living in exile in what appears to be Paris, he has become one of the regime’s most ferocious critics.
Please understand, I’m totally down with that. Unfortunately, Mr. El Mesmari is a scary-angry guy with Dick Cheney teeth and a prosthetic eye that’s aimed the wrong way and never blinks, even when the other one does. These things are not his fault, obviously. However, you have to admit there’s a lot of gratuitous Bond-villain accessorizing here that suggests he’s consciously “working” the image. I mean, Jesus, just look at him. Is it any wonder his last job was “Dictator Henchman”?
Plus, he yells a great deal and constantly gives the impression that, any moment, tentacles could burst from his chest to shoot acid or bat-like brain parasites at the studio crew. It makes me very uneasy to watch him, and my cats refuse to be in the same room when he is on the screen.
If you could interview Mr. El Mesmari a little less frequently, or by phone, I would be very much obliged. I’m sure you agree that Al Jazeera does not want to be known as the “Yelling-Scary-Angry-Alien-Impostor” network. One FoxNews is plenty.
Thanks in advance.
