I almost posted this on a thread yesterday but decided it would be too mean.

It's not quite as bad as the ones who post about life in Dubai two months BEFORE they arrive!

I think Gavtek and Rossi must own and write this site... This is what I have come up with.

I really like this recent one Tour of Oman cyclists “must use cars next year” | The Pan-Arabia Enquirer

One of the best, particularly with the comments from people who didn't get the satire, was this early one Katie Price to sue Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan | The Pan-Arabia Enquirer


In fact the comments from people taking it all at face value are often the best bits!
