At ties times when it come to sex joke.joke.
** Possibly the biggest example is after 117 beats up the muezzing for waking him up. Bad enough, but then he actually admits this matter-of-factly to Larima, as if telling her he'd squashed a bug that was keeping him awake.



* InnocentlyInsensitive: How 117 has a tendency to come across. He's not trying to be racist/intolerant of Islam, he just knows almost nothing about either Egypt or Muslims.

* RefugeInAudacity: 117, unable to go to sleep because of the muezzin calling the faithful to prayer. He ''climbs the muezzing and starts fighting the guy'', knocks him out and goes back to sleep.

''OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies'' (''OSS 117: Le Caire, nid d'espions'') is a 2006 French satirical film lampooning European spy movies, Connery-era ''Film/JamesBond'' films and the French political context of the 1950s. Jean Dujardin (who physically resembles a young Sean Connery) plays Hubert, a.k.a. OSS 117, a French secret agent sent to Cairo to investigate the mysterious disappearances both of another OSS agent and a ship full of illegal weaponry. His prowess in hand-to-hand combat and seduction is matched by his bumbling stupidity and utter ignorance of Muslim culture.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Played horribly, ''horribly'' straight by 117. He seems to think the Suez Canal was built by the Ancient Egyptians, and the Pyramids were completed last week with international help.
