Looks like somebody will be attending an execution. Their own!

Cut off, his drawing hand will be.

The Ministry of Education is getting photos from the internet instead of paying to use legitimate ones. Is this because they don't have the money or because someone is pocketing it?

MadisonMan said...

Wouldn't it be refreshing if the King laughed at this, and encouraged the Ministry to keep it?

Breezy said...

Wut? Yoda wasn't there?

Paul said...

"Off with their heads", said the King!

Photo of 'Founder' of kingdom.

May as well place Yoda in Philly in 1776.

It seems Yoda translate as Forrest Gump in Arabic.

Anyone else reminded of the "Bert Is Evil" image of Osama bin Laden next to Bert that found its way onto so many protest posters after 9/11?

I had to stop laughing and wipe away my tears before sending off the link to family and friends. That's the funniest thing I've seen in years.

Creepy, it would be. Dead, he is.

They got it mixed up with one where the King was beside Carlos Romulo (Filipino diplomat and statesman, once President of the UN General Assembly). An honest mistake.

Virgil Hilts said...

Michelle Dulak Thomson - I also thought immediately of Evil Bert. The multiple links between the leftist entertainment media and the Saudis continue to disturb

buwaya said...

It seems the picture actually is of then-Prince Faisal at the UN in 1949 - and Carlos Romulo was the President of the General Assembly at the time. So it is likely authentic and not manipulated.

False alarm.

Isn't Yoda a Jewish name??

Mr. al Sheri has got some 'splainin to do

First Kim Jong-Un and now Yoda.... This is a great day.

My first reaction was how could something like this happen? Then I remembered from my law review days that we would occasionally slip a joke into an article when it was in production. But—as far as I know—we always got it out before it went to publication.

Great. @ Hoodlum I told you today was another day!

Sam L. said...

Cool, that is.

Quaestor said...

The black-and-white photograph of Faisal and Yoda is the work of a 26-year-old Saudi artist named Abdullah al-Sheri [who] goes by the nickname Shaweesh.

The vorpal blade went shaweesh!

The vorpal blade went shaweesh!

LOL.

D said...

Could have been worse. Could have been Miss Piggy. I presume Yoda is halal.

Howard said...

Yoda clearly is an Ashkenazi Jew, making him more Hillel than Halal

Lucien said...

I thought vorpal blades went snickersnack. Shaweesh could be a mistranslation of Schwinggg! ("The dogma speeaks loudly in this one", said Yoda.)
