Finally, a news story we can relate to. An annual culture festival in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh was interrupted when three men from the United Arab Emirates stand were ejected for being too handsome.

"A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds [that] they are too handsome and that the Commission members feared female visitors could fall for them," a news service said, adding that "the festival's management took urgent measures to deport the three to Abu Dhabi."

We have this problem a lot. In fact, a prerequisite of employment at our site is at least one prior arrest for extreme handsomeness or beauty.

Saudi is one of the worst countries in the world. The fact the US government supports them is just depressing.

To think, that country literally digs money straight out of the ground, yet they're so culturally backward it's sickening.

SA is the only country in the world where women are not allowed to drive so why would they not kick someone out for being to handsome/ pretty.
