How To Spot A Gay Iraqi





I don't even know why I'm surprised. Given my particular psychological make-up, a reasonable person might suspect that nothing would shock me. I don't know whether it's the free-flowing peek-a-boo thoub or the matching white short shorts worn in defiance of the Koran or the blue suede pumps with four-inch heels or the designer gutrah emblazoned so jauntily on his head or the eleven gold bands on his wrist or the matching kidskin purse or the designer Pierre Cardin shades he wears with such obvious defiance to all things traditionally Arab, but this cat rocks the boat.

I realize it's probably heresy to mention it, but this dude has real chutzpah! I don't know where the photo was taken, but I can't imagine that it's Baghdad or anywhere in Yemen. For that matter, even in someplace as civilized as Paris, I can't envision a scenario where his jaunt lasted more than a couple of blocks before some slightly-irritable Jihadist sent him to Allah with a well-placed volley from a hand-held rocket launcher.


But, I guess some must suffer in the name of self-expression.

Well it seems obvious to me that it's actually a woman disguised as a man so she could show her face in public! (among other things!)

Bob,
It seems to me you know a lot about fashion. Certainly more than I know...I'm just saying...

These last two posts are like exploring a theme of courage. This guy deserves a medal for bravery, maybe The Pink Cross.

Shirley-- Well, if she's going to adequately pull off her little subterfuge, she may want to consider losing the beard.

Jo-- Well, you do live in the Boigh, after all. I'm just sayin'...

Gingatao-- Hey, I ain't throwin' no rocks. I'm shaking my head a little, but...

From the park bench and trees, I'm going to make a wild guess that this brave soul plies his trade in Paris all right - as in the Bois de Boulogne. If that's the case, he really does deserve the Pink Cross for bravery. I mean, how fast can you run from the heat in those shoes?

looks like the southern hemisphere

paisley said...

well i am unsure who,, and what is obvious,, but for the where... i gotta san francisco.. here... no one would look twice...

Bubba said...

Lee, Scot, Paisley-- You all make a good case for his whereabouts. I think the most important distinction is that he ain't where I am, for which I am eternally grateful. When the small arms fire starts, I'd just as soon be anywhere else.

It's the runway model strut coupled witt the beard that I find fascinating . . . . . . .

kaylee said...

I was going to say
something snarky
but then I saw he was
wearing my shoes.
Does he not know enough to
not wear white until
after Memorial day?

Bubba said...

Nan-- Yea, dude has flair, if not a lick of common sense.

Kaylee-- Good point... and I'm sure Ali Mustaffah Al-Sharif will take that into consideration as he takes aim.
