    Why is it so easy for me to imagine this coming out of the mouth of a tea party member?

    Wouldn't work for world leaders. The group has to be physically close, like living in the same house or dorm. But I like your concept.

    People have always used pseudo-science to somehow justify their political agenda. Hitler did it, Creationists do it, and these guys do it. Heck, even some guys who hate 3D films do it.

    Now there's a harsh holiday. :eek:

    That would make a hilarious, Woody Allen-style parody. :rommie:

    It seems that Saudi women plan to take to the streets and drive in a mass protest on 26 October. The website announcing this has been blocked in Saudi Arabia though I gather the word is being spread around the country.

    True, but as you put it, the concept, was well worth the post :)

    That would explain why all my ties say "YO CHECK DIS OUT".

    Correct the grammar on those ties and even more women will swoon over you. ;)

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go iron my pelvis.

    I have to subtly undercut my own awesomeness with awkward irony or people would become intimidated by my own huge, throbbing... brain. Right. Brain.

    Don't forget the starch or it will become floppy and frumpy just after a few uses.

    I love you. :lol:

    Edit: Actually, come to think of it, after giving birth three times within 3 1/2 years my pelvic floor could do with a good starching, but that's probably TMI.

    I'd like to clarify that this is not the middle east in general, it's Saudi Arabia in particular.

    There's no problem with women driving in the UAE. Not sure about other countries.

    Although the UAE is hardly without faults of its own, of course. Its drug policies are so draconian that it makes ours look tame.

    Now let's all sing:

    Roll up the pelvis
    We'll have a pelvis of fun
    Roll up the pelvis
    We've got the sheiks on the run
    Zing, boom, like Elvis
    Sing out a song of good cheer
    Now's the time to roll the pelvis
    For the gang's all here!

    :D

    I don't play the gender card at work. My (male) colleagues tend to forget that I lack the dangly bits and consider me a buddy.
