News We Abuse

Pakistani diplomat Akbar Zeb had a long and distinguished career as a high-level government official until recently, when he was nominated as ambassador to Saudi Arabia.

Pakistani officials were confused though, when Saudi officials immediately rejected Akbar's nomination without the usual debate or American styled vetting process.

As it turns out, the Saudi's were offended because in Arabic, the name, Akbar Zeb, translates into the phrase........."Biggest Dick!!!"

The Arabian Times reports that Akbar had been previously rejected as ambassador to both Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates and was turned down there as well.

Apparently, they've just now figured out why. LOL!
