True Story

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' started by pete the pom, Jun 21, 2005.

  1. Barbara Walters of 20/20 (USA-ABC Television) did a story on gender
    roles in Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict.

    She noted that women customarily walked 5 paces behind their husbands.
    She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk
    behind their husbands. From Ms. Walters vantage point, despite the
    overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem to walk
    even further back behind their husbands and are happy to maintain the
    old custom.

    Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, "Why do you
    now seem happy with the old custom that you once tried so desperately
    to change?"

    The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes and without
    hesitation, said "Land mines."
  2. Great yarn, Pete, but I do wish you'd stop reminding me about Chicken Strips; every time I read about them I get hungry!!!
  3. The Taleban may have been overthrown but what has replaced them isnt exactly friendly to women either. The oppression continues...
  4. MMMM Chicken Strips.. I eat mine all up as soon as I get 'em!
