Funny Stuff in the UAE

Like the ice rink at the Mall. Yes that is a car dealership on the second level (not the parking garage).

“Humps” are all over the place in UAE, requiring one to reduce speed. If you are new to the country you might think humps refer to camels. If you are into hip-hop and rap you might think humps refers to something a bit off-color and risque. But in the UAE humps means “Speed Bumps.”

I found a great place to purchase electronics – “Costless” InfoTech – from the name it sounds like everything might be free! Even the tagline says “Make the moment costless.” Unfortunately my hopes for a free computer were dashed. Not sure if they were going for “Cost Less” or “Priceless” but I found the name itself priceless, and they didn’t charge me anything for the laugh.

Lastly – these ads hang over many of the public toilets. “Taft Looks” is the brand name, and “Titan Looks” is the product name – there are a variety of other looks too (I can’t remember them). Interestingly there is another brand or compnay name on these ads too – “Shwarzkopf” – I wonder if Stormin Norman found a good investment opportunity in men’s hair care products here in the Middle East?

Well – that’s it for funny pics. Go unleash YOUR style!
