I dunno, maybe "Open happiness" doesn't translate into Arabic but clearly all Coke was saying is that Arabs are handsome and camels are stubborn. Of course, even lost in translation it never takes much to get the masses stirred up. If they were included in the field then they'd probably be complaining about being lumped in with the leggy Jezebels.

I voted for the Showgirls.

I took from that there is an implication that you possess a sub-standard love muscle. But, I can be wrong, Big Fella! Meanwhile, what "surprise" does Syria have for Israel? Party favors?

I voted for the wimmins and my tail isn't split. It was a matter of who(m) I'd like to see in the future and the dudes weren't doing anything for me.

In keeping with the tradition of offering up lemons during periods of un-activity, I submit the following:

>Christians are in fact more likely to tip badly than diners with no religious affiliation, according to a study on the subject by Michael Lynn of Cornell University. While Christians gave an average of 17.3 percent for good service, a significant minority -- 13 percent -- left less than 15 percent gratuity for good service, which is double the percentage of unaffiliated diners who tip in that range and six times the percentage of Jewish diners who do the same.<

Jews are better tippers than Christians and unaffiliated diners? Who’d a thunk it? LOL

When I had horses I steered away from Arabians because they are high-strung. They look good and show well but for utility I wouldn't risk it.

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.

You'd have to choke pretty bad for me to leave less than 20%. I'm talking about Garo Yepremian in the '73 Superbowl bad.
