The kids of today

Arun Simha points me to a fine blog called "The Religious Policeman", self-described as "The diary of a Saudi man, currently living in the United Kingdom, where the Religious Police no longer trouble him for the moment." It's fascinating stuff, laced with wit, and I especially laughed aloud at the following excerpt:
Conversation between two mothers in a Saudi supermarket:

Mother 1: Oh hello, haven't seen you for ages*, how's little Abdullah?

Mother 2: Little Abdullah? He's really big now. He went off to Iraq to be a suicide bomber. And little Mohammad?

Mother 1: Same thing. No longer little either. He also went off to be a suicide bomber in Iraq

Mother 2: There you go. Don't children blow up quickly these days?

* (Ironic greeting exchanged between veiled ladies.)
Read the full post here. Good stuff.
