Tehran, Iran - The editor of Iran's official NCIS fanzine website has welcomed the appointment of new Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadie on satirical grounds.
Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi 'Rough Son Johnny' Rafsanjani said today the Iraqi was probably chosen because of a remarkable facial similarity to NCIS character Trent Kort.
The evil CIA black ops operative famously won his spurs by running the Agency's wannabe leading global arms dealer 'La Grenouille' before topping the villain and framing NCIS special agents.
"Blowing DiNozzo's cover as well as his Dodge Intrepid Convertible is my favorite NCIS plot,' Rough Son Johnny posted this morning as the Iraqi's appointment made the news.
Abadie replaces ex-IRA thug and Bush-Blair pig - uh, pick! - Newry Al-Marakey under whose leadership Iraq descended into chaos.
And he's ditching Kort's famous black eyepatch in favor of a bionic glass eye replacement.
The 'evil eye' talisman is known as the chashm zakhm in Persian, the 'ayin ha-ra' in Hebrew and the çaw e zar in Kurdish.
