I know I know. This country has gone way over the top in many things, the latest of which is their panic-stricken attempts at “controlling” swine flu outbreaks by closing all schools. They might as well close all shopping malls, cinemas, coffee shops, sheesha shops (well, they should close those anyway if they really are concerned about our health), mosques, churches and anywhere else where people might gather. Oh, cancel hajj, umra and visits to other holy places too. Come to think of it, they might as well declare marshal law and sequester us all in our homes until further notice.
All these measures don’t prove their kindness nor does it prove their over-protective love and affection of course. What it does prove, I think, is their confirmation that the public health is completely inadequate at best or just plain and simple sucks. Of course they have already proven time and again that education for the unwashed masses is just dangerous and could be done without completely. This is their chance!
Well, until they make up their mind what “national strategy” (hold your laughs and sniggers please), my suggestion to them is to force everyone to wear a mask, male and female. Prove to the world that it was US, the Illustrious Arabs, who invented this healthy and gorgeous contraption in the first place.
Maybe some enterprising soul could slap some Swarovski gauche crystals on them and sell them for a tidy some.
Yet another fashion craze is born.
You heard it here first folks!
Enjoy your Eid and don’t kiss and cuddle now.
