We don’t know about you, but when we think funny, we think the Middle East. And Egyptian TV prankster Ramz Jalal figures there’s no better way to pass the long hours of Ramadan fasting than generating a few yuks. His big concept: fooling celebs by making them think they’ve been kidnapped at gunpoint in the Sinai Peninsula. But timesofisrael.com reports that – for some reason – not all of the kidnapees have been amused. “Not surprisingly some are not laughing, and according to al-Arabiya, many have attempted to beat up Jalal, who does his best to calm down the fuming star or starlet and avoid a bloody nose.” There’s apparently no stopping the irrepressible Ramz, the Alan Funt of the holy lands. “Jalal himself staged a show last year in which he trapped celebrities in an elevator with a lion.” You just have to laugh along with a jokester like that, don’t you?
