I was recently in a gathering of Arabic women (who just get up to such things when they're together!) and a witticism they made while having a joke-off snagged my attention. They're often suprisingly dirty jokes and the following is quite light in terms of that actually:
Mrs A: 'There's this Saudi woman, she asks her husband to tie her to the bed then do whatever he wants with her-- '
Mrs B interjects, laughing: 'Saudi woman, asking her husband for that?! That's the joke, isn't it?'
After letting the ensuing laughter die down, Mrs A continues: "Anyway, she asks him this and he agrees. He ties her to the bed *pause* then he leaves her there and travels to Bahrain."
This caused a bought of roaring laughter occurs. What's so significant about Bahrain? I can't tell really tell you.
