>Just in case my idea for a new TV show called “The Gaza Strip” (see: previous post) is deemed to offensive, I have an alternative. In keeping with the Bush administration’s spirit of “bringing democracy” to Iraq, the setting and characters of the show can be changed from Palestinians in Brooklyn to Iraqi women still in Iraq. To show that “Arab” culture is not monolithic, the style of snatch waxing done in the Iraqi women’s salon will be different. Instead of a strip of pubic hair remaining, the waxers leave a distinctive shape behind. The shop and show will thus be called “The Sunni Triangle.”
