Where’s a Fatwa When You Need One?
Paris Hilton has opened up her 42nd Handbag and Accessories store. Where, you ask? Why, in the Muslim holy city of Mecca, where else?
You may not have known that Paris has a chain of handbag and accessory stores, that’s because apparently she’s been run out of the U.S. and Western Europe. That’s right, You won’t find a store in Milan or New York, but you can find Paris’ lovely line of cheap and gaudy handbags at such exotics place as Bangalore, India; North Coast, Egypt; and everyone’s favorite vacation hot-spot: Damascus, Syria! Don’t forget to pack your sense of civil unrest!
Surprisingly, many Muslims are upset that a tawdry, American porn-star would open a store in their holiest of cities, and they took to Twitter to launch their complaints.
Frankly, I’m a little disappointed, where’s the fanatical extremists I hear so much about in the news? Shouldn’t they be burning her in effigy and parading her head around on a pike? (See artist’s depiction above.)
