Just wrong

The Wall Street Journal has a story here about The Simpsons translation for Arabic TV. The name of the show is "Al Shamshoon", staring Homer (Omar Shamshoon), Bart (Badr Shamshoon), and the rest of the family. Omar no longer eats donuts, bacon, or drinks beer. Although it's a good sign that some Western culture is being spread into non-traditional areas, I'd be curious to hear the general reactions to the show from new viewers, and those familiar with original version.
