That's a handy tipping tip, thanks. And if there's junk in the trunk what do you do?

Try voting for yourself. It don't let you. At any rate, you judged me. You found it funny because Diners are prone to hire chubbies. You found it racy because of the junk in the trunk rebuttal and you found it brilliant because I am. Now roll over and go back to sleep. ;>)

Besides, I've been through Egypt and Jordan and I've been to Lebanon and you don't see many horses. Donkeys are still everywhere (workhorses) but the most prevalent working animal on the peninsula and northern Africa is the camel. No offense intended but when I picture Arabs in the desert it's aboard a camel.
The reason is cause horses got a small footprint, cant handle sand too good, they sink in and makes it hard for them to move. The word is camel urine.

>Jerusalem - Israel's Shin Bet domestic security service and army announced on Thursday the arrest of about 20 members of Hamas' armed wing in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

The Shin Bet and army arrested "approximately 20 terrorists affiliated with the Hamas who were planning a kidnapping attack in order to bargain for the release of prisoners", a joint statement read.<

Go Shin Bet. Looks like a little R & R in one of Israel's fine prisons.

Did you expect to see Arabians trotting on the side of the road next to donkeys and mules? A purebred Arabian costs more than a Ferrari. People treat these animals like family members. They keep records of the horse's ancestry, sort of like a family tree.

Yeah I know. Horse people are nuts...I've insulted far more horse people than Arabs. I'll tell you one thing Ahmad...never buy an Arabian horse but ABSOLUTELY NEVER buy one from an Arab. If those a-holes are willing to fork over that kind of money for a pedigree they have too much money and it's certain that they have no sense.

Do you think having the Arabian horse instead of the camel would have enhanced the Arab's image in the commercial? They do cost as much as an Italian sports car and everyone likes Italians.

Arabs love and respect horses. They used to (they still do?) let horses sleep inside their tents with the rest of the family. They even took pride in their horses' ancestry. For example, a horse would have a name like Abhar bin Atlal bin Ahzam bin Ashqar bin....etc.(Bin means son of, as in Osama bin Laden LOL).
There are folders upon folders of ancient Arabic poetry and literature about horses. Adham, which is one of the popular Arabic boy names, was the name of a horse that belonged to a pre-Islamic poet and knight called Antara bin Shadad.

If I ever find myself with an extra 200,000 dollars laying around, I'd happily invest in an Arabian horse. Very beautiful, sensitive, high spirited, proud, and loyal animals. What's not to love about them?

As for the Ad, well, like I said, it's f*ckin stupid. Those racism claims are ridiculous. That said, it would have been FAIR to give us the option to vote for the Arab guy. After all, the ad suggests that the race is taking place in Rub' Al Khali desert.
