    So what happens to these dudes in their homeland? Do they get kicked out of everywhere they go?

    And why the hell does this never happen in reverse? Roving gangs of hot babes attacking defenseless middle aged guys? :lol:

    All over the web people are asking for photos.

    Some of the English-language Arab newspapers have hilarious comments including that Saudi men should start wearing burkas.

    Comments from Emaratis are saying that if handsome men had to cover up than no Saudi man would have to because they are all so ugly but there are many, many handsome men in UAE.

    That has to be one of the best reasons to be deported ever. They can do a remake of 'I'm Too Sexy' in all good conscience now.

    The UAE is fairly progressive as middle-eastern countries go. Dubai in particular is very liberal. If not for the Arabic street signs it could be any number of cities in the US or Europe.

    Well, actually it's cleaner than most cities in the US or Europe. And the skyline is more impressive.

    Saudi Arabia, by comparison, is in the stone age.

    Unless you're at the airport and you happen to have a poppy seed clinging to your shoe. Linky

    There are a few horror stories. It's not like the US doesn't have them too. For the most part it's not a scary place.

    The article in Laser's linky is pretty scary, because you can pick up infinitesimal amounts of drugs just about anywhere. A coworker of mine almost lost his job because a drug dog detected drugs on him. They eventually figured out that the scent was on money in his wallet -- change from when he had stopped somewhere for breakfast on the way to work.

    Saudia Arabia's sexual politics are beyond the ability of satirists to do them justice.

    Maybe it happened at terminal 1 or 2. One of those, I forget which, I heard was rather shady. I've only been to Terminal 3 (exclusively Emirates) and I've never seen excessive security or drug tests or whatnot. It's just another airport and passport control point.
