This is an on going collection of odd information I pick up from the trimedia (news papers, TV and the net) which I want to share to the world. Oddities are something unusual -- perhaps worthy of collecting; an eccentricity that is not easily explained or perhaps a strange attitude or habit- anything that caught my attention browsing the news which are funny (at least to me) unusual, strange or thought provoking which I want to share…urbi-et-orbi.

"Obama" as Satan in 'The Bible': History Channel Miniseries!?
Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni actually plays the role of Satan in "The Bible" (a History channel miniseries) but the actor's uncanny similarity to President Barrack Obama caught the eye of viewers and netizens alike- especially portraying a not so flattering character to say the least. A number of Twitter users noticed this among which are noted Obama "fans" like Glenn Beck who posted a screenshot of Ouazanni and asked if others thought he looked like "That Guy,"- Beck's preferred term for Obama.
Ouazanni as Satan in "The Bible" on the left; Obama, right.
“History channel has the highest respect for President Obama.....It's unfortunate that anyone made this false connection.....This is utter nonsense," Burnett said. "The actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouzaani, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor. He has previously played parts in several Biblical epics -- including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our President.”
