there’s nothing like a good dare

I enjoy having fun as much as the next guy, especially if the next guy is…fun. Don’t worry about that double use of “fun” — there’s no redundancy in fun.

Anyway, as usual, the French have their panties (or maybe it’s their berets) in a wad over the whole Islamic religious head-covering thing. Evidently, they have banned these coverings. I’m wondering how that’s going to play out. That’s not me being snarky — that’s me really wondering. Cuz you know, I have a lot of Jewish friends who like their yarmulkes, and while I’m not partial to wearing a veil in church, it is certainly a part of my heritage. I wore a mantilla at my wedding.

So where is this going? Seems to me they opened the doors to their feared “watering down” of French culture, and now they wanna get those horses back in the barn? Good luck with that.

I suppose if I’m really being sympathetic I could say “Bon chance.”

Seems to me they’re missing out on a great opportunity to cash in on some new trends. Check this out:

The Laptop Burka

This product, designed to help shield you from the sun’s glare while enjoying the use of your laptop, seems like it should be a runaway hit. I wonder if I could use it to blend in while I secretly text my friends, eat a candybar while I’m on a diet, or maybe just pick my nose. Check it out here.

        It all really started with a silly Seattle craigslist add which went gobal, viral in three days ! Alot of hate mail but then people started asking for them which was a real problem it meant I had to make them long story short they are made in Seattle Washington http://www.laptopburka.com .
