Sometimes you really are reminded about the absurd side to life here and how the most harmless, innocuous and inconsequential things are seemingly big news here.
Take the article in Emirates Today about three women sparking outrage in The Greens when - horror of horrors - they sunbathed topless!!!
A number of people complained that they were exposing themselves and "took turns jumping in the water"... the hussies!
One resident said: “They were treating it like the Costa Del Sol. A lot of people were tutting when they took off their tops but they just giggled and started jumping in the pool.”
God forbid anyone should "lower the tone" at The Greens and have a bit of a laugh with their tops off! One hundred lashes and a year in the slammer at the least, I say!
Good God, I think the end of the world cometh... and no doubt they'll throw the book at them should these wild and wanton women be tracked down and publicly exposed (as it were)!
