A hug for Osama
21 February 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

In the dysfunctional city of Yallahrup Færgeby (Port Wog) lives a boy named Ali. Ali is 12 years old and going through severe hardship. He has an ambition of becoming the gangster thug of the town, but it's not easy since he is yet to enter puberty and his best friend, Hassan, has a crush on him and that really isn't very gangsterish.

Eventually, Ali turns to Abu Babu, local town terrorist, who promises Ali 72 randy virgins, much to Ali's satisfaction. However, Ali later learns that it requires a suicide and he backs out since he figures virgins are no good if he's dead and being dead is not very gangsterish unless you are 2pac.

In school, Ali is constantly subjected to the absurd and arrogant behavior of headmaster Hanne, a declared feminist, as well as Morten, a spineless man, working as the librarian of the school. Morten is assigned to teach Ali about freedom of speech, which Ali uses to slander and insult people around him. Hanne wants to arrange a Saint Lucia march, but when she realizes that 6 of the students in the marching class are non-white, she quickly concludes that they are unsuitable as Lucia characters and she orders them to dress up as chocolate cookies and join the march. Strange, yet hilariously fun.

Through 24 episodes, we follow Ali and his companions in their ambitions to seize power in Yallahrup, but nobody seems to notice. The humor is this series is crude and without restraint and stereotypes are taken to absurd lengths, which might offend you if you are a bit rigorous by design. For the rest of us, it is a giddy and witty Christmas calendar that mocks Danes and immigrants equally, much to the amusement of the audience.

Great calendar guaranteed to make you chuckle repeatedly.
