Of Fatwas and Men

While we are on the subject of men's strange mental faculties, you just have to smile at this religious charlatan from Cairo - after you have tarred and feathered him that is - who issued a fatwa on how men and women can avoid being in 'sin' if they find themselves working together alone in the office …wait for it …by suckling a women's breast five times!

Needless to say the fatwa was 'nipped in the bud' before it could take effect …

Bet there are a lot of disappointed office workers out there … at least it was light reprieve from the daily horrors around us ….
Sent me back to the days of the flower power "make love not war" movement of the '60s …

Long live the theatre of the absurd! … J
