July 4, 2011After returning from a quick trip to the middle east it is clear to me that most of the fighting is shade related. They are fighting over the shade. That's it. The heat hurts. I told customs that I was there to tell jokes. they didn't believe me. So I told him I was there for the cool desert summer breezes. He asked where I was from and I said the sun. I've included a picture of a ski resort in a mall in Dubai. I didn't ski because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to stop at the bottom of the slope where a cutlery shop was located. I felt I would ski through the window and behead myself. The first self inflicted decapitation in the middle east would be me. Why'd they cut Kirk's head off? Because he wouldn't stop. Wouldn't stop what? Skiing.
