Saudis lashin' out

by Jeremy Hooper

There is lots of outrage brewing over this story:

Two Saudis to receive 7,000 lashes for committing "homosexual acts" [DigitalJournal]

But we really don't get all the fuss. Yes, the punishment is a little unorthodox, and yes, it'd be a bitch to find the cabinet space to store them all...

Boxlashes-1

...but we can think of many worse things than 7,000 lashes. Like 7,000 press-on nails, for instance. Or even 6,000 of those weird nipple enhancer things.

Though maybe we're missing something. If only we could be bothered to actually read the story, we might find out. But then again, who can concentrate on frivolous matters like decency and humanity when Britney's kids are up for discussion?
