What's wrong with this picture?

Answer: It was taken in the desert. More accurately, it was taken at Arabian Ranches in Dubai.
Actually, there are a lot of Christmas decorations there, considering that the UAE is officially a Muslim country. The malls are all decked out -- and there are a lot of malls. Shopping is a national pastime in the UAE.
When I was shopping last Friday, I saw a Muslim guy dressed in a dishdash (the same thing I'm dressed in, in the Osama Bob Laden pic) buying an artificial Christmas tree and decorations to go with it. His very beautiful blonde significant other was also with him.

..and you took the snowman instead of the blonde ?? The heat must have affected the testosterone .

I was gonna say the same thing.
YOU should have brought back a blonde from UAE. Especially after the waxing...

How do you know that there isn't a beautiful Arab woman on the way, once the paper work is completed?
Huh? How do ya? Huh?

Maria said...

Thats how we know!

And if she is Arab I am willing to bet that her back is hairier than yours ever was! Ewwwwwwwwww!

Well, of course they have Christmas stuff. Most of the people who vacation there are probably Christian. The may be Muslim, but they're businessmen first.
...and Maria, thanks for the mental image of Arab women with hairy backs.
...although I once dated a beautiful Lebanese girl, and her arms were almost as hairy as mine...but it was 'girl' hair.

Not only are vacationers Christian, so are the vast majority of expats swelling the population of Dubai. It's now 1.4 million, and I read an article last week that says the prediction is that by the year 2020, it will be 5.2 million.
