Smart beggar

montreal-bum

we're finally back to beirut yesterday from a long & exhausting trip to canada and france - while my husband will travel to kuwait today, our vacation with the kids will continue in beirut for a few more days.

meanwhile, we'll be posting some stories from our trip along some new ones, we apologies for this break but it was much-needed.

you probably saw this picture as we posted it on instagram a few days ago - we bumped into this smart bum on st catherine street in downtown montreal, he's funny and always smiling and kind of honest :) it's a creative way to ask for money and it worked, very different from the street beggars you find on the champs elysees, see picture below.

paris-bums

this is a very unpleasant way to ask for money, somehow the funny, self-criticizing way works best for us - beside, the beggars on the champs elysees seem to be organized in gangs, we spotted them at a meeting point splitting the goods.

feels good to be back, we'll post more news shortly.

Speechless!

Wishful thinking!

jhonny-walker-red-label

i spotted this red label bottle at the cross-road of salem al mubarak street, right in front of the auk - i stopped and took a picture, though people behind me cursed me for that, but the shot is so worth it!

dude!! they won't grow on trees, what were you thinking?

Hilarious Asian signs!

emergency-door-cock

we sometimes laugh at signs in the arab world but it seems that asia, and specifically china, is no better! daily mail online has published this hilarious post called lost in translation, with a number of side-splitting advice signs from foreign airports - as usual, we've picked the worst sign to show you, however there are many other funny ones too.

English in Asian Airports

so if you face delay due to some reasons, do not worry or even ask, you'll eventually get on that plane - however in case of emergency, just pull the emergency door cock, as mail online mentioned :)

Crap!

gold-ring-delish

i read this hilarious story on arabtimes online about this couple who stole gold rings from a jewelery shop by simply eating the rings as the salesman looked away!

however, the salesman was no fool so he calls the cops who basically caught the couple and took them to hospital for x-ray - the rings were identified and the couple were given laxatives to help them exit the rings!

i wonder what happened to the rings after that.. i mean someone at the hospital must have cleaned them up, but then what? did the salesman put them back for sale? well a good salesman would.. "listen lady, i know my shit, trust me this is pure solid gold".

Short-lived dream!

43-billion

i read this hilarious story on arabtimes online about this guy who withdrew money from an atm and got this number printed on the receipt, kd 43 billion!!!!!

what's funny is that the guy went to his bank the next day and tried to play smart by asking to withdraw 1 million kd, the bank's manager was surprised as the guy's deposits are not even close to that number and had to explain that this was a printing mistake.

does anyone know how much money is kd 43 billion? it's much bigger than any bank's assets in kuwait, i mean the richest man in the world's fortune is around kd 18 billion, how can someone even think that this could be real money in his own account!

poor guy, what a disappointing morning he must have had..

First post by Rose!

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

i received this picture from rose who was at arraya with her girlfriends - they spotted this store called "bel air" in english but apparently, and rightfully, they cracked-up at the arabic translation! this is rose's first official post at our blog and frankly we didn't expect anything less!

by the way rose, this is the wife posting so spare the jokes with my husband!

FLAMES!!

i'm not that familiar with wordpress blogs, but after following an incoming link from wordpress, i landed on this blog called "kuwait blogs suck" who made a tribute to our blog! so here's the link and enjoy the hilarious hypothetical conversation with 965malls.

Evil eye strikes again!

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

almost 2 years ago, we wrote about this guy in jahra who walked into the police station and threatened to kill his neighbor, with a strong evil eye! the man reported renovating his house which later caught fire, he bought a new car for his son and the engine gave way and then his wife gave birth to twins and they died...

yesterday, i read a similar story on arabtimes, where police arrested a gcc citizen for assaulting a bedoun man with an evil eye! it seems that the suspect bought a new car and when the victim looked at it, it stopped working... the suspect admitted to the charge and said even the neighbors know that the man has an evil eye!

stories like these crack me up... how can you prove such things? hello... there's something called coincidence? being at the wrong place at the wrong time?!

i've had some bad luck lately, shall i blame it on the great evil eye?? don't believe in this s**t!

Shows in malls?

Monday, July 16th, 2012

i bumped into this shop while parking at al-dawliya complex the other day and it kind of struck me.. what kind of shows are happening behind its doors and what is exactly a no problem show?

Rather good riddance!

Monday, June 11th, 2012

i read this hilarious news on arabtimes about this kuwaiti guy who reported his missing wife at the dahyet abdullah al-salem police station, 8 months after her disappearance!!

seriously??!! it really took you 8 months to realize your wife is missing? i wonder how much time it took him to realize he actually got married and that the lady sleeping next to him is not his younger sister!

BMW gives persistent erection?

Friday, May 4th, 2012

i read the most hilarious news on msn and i think it is worth sharing - a guy is suing bmw for giving him a persistent lasting erection medically called priapism, it seems that the seat of his bike is causing this physical reaction - can't believe this, some people have really lost it!

look at the bright side... having trouble in the bedroom? grab your bmw bike and cruise down gulf road for a few minutes, you'll come back home strong as a horse!

you can read the full story here.
