Egypt Spruces Up Its Image December 30, 2008

Posted by Michael in News.

If you spend a lot of money going to Egypt, the last thing you want to see is a lot of donkey crap.

Am I right?

Of course I am right.

Donkeys have been banned from walking around in the streets of Egypt’s south-western al-Wadi al-Gadeed governorates without wearing diapers, according to an official in the area.

Mohammed Haround said the measure was to “preserve the aesthetic and cultural scene of the governorate which currently witnesses an unprecedented boom in tourism”.

“Diapers are available in the markets at low prices,” Haroun was quoted by the official MENA news agency as saying on Tuesday.

Honestly, I think it’s a good FIRST step to move away from the third world look. Crap in the street is not a good look.

Top Five Things Egypt Could Do to Spruce Up Their Image:

1. Outlaw female genital mutilation.
2. Stop blaming The Jews for EVERYTHING.
3. Get their donkeys to stop crapping in the streets.
4. Get their young men to stop strapping on bomb belts and killing people.
5. Flouridate the drinking water.

Donkeys in diapers? Just like any other ruling in Egypt it will be enforced for a brief period then forgotten.

@ Wikedpinto — Sandmonkey is still blogging

Donkeys to start wearing diapers? This creates new job opportunities for people.

Hey Wickedpinto, I know you may not have the skill set to be a Donkey Changer, but go ahead and apply anyway.

The horses and mules that pull the tour carriages in Charleston, SC have worn “diapers” for 20+ years.
It makes a world of difference on a hot day.

I think my first authentic post at the hostages was in “one of us” and it was about how like 4 bloggers quit, and one of those bloggers was sandmonkey.

Glad he didn’t outright quit
