Some of my readers may have already seen the following on Facebook, but as it made me chuckle I thought I would repeat it.
A young Arab boy asks his Father: What is that strange hat you are wearing?
Father: It protects our heads from the intense heat of the sun.
Son: And what is that long flowing robe you are wearing?
Father: My son, it is very simple. This is a ‘djbellah’, In the desert it is very hot and the sand is always blowing. The djbellah protects my entire body.
Son: But what are those shoes you have on your feet?
Father: These are ‘babouches’. While the desert sands are very beautiful, they are extremely hot and they keep my feet from burning.
Son: So tell me then,
Father: Yes my Son?
Son: Why are you living in Bradford and still wearing all this f***ing shite?
