In Saudi Arabia, it’s Halloween all year ’round!


Check out the Cancer ribbon. Hey, what’s with the decadent pink trimming on the left? She’s asking for a whooping.

Don’t laugh. I’ll bet she’s hot without the glasses.


While touring a haunted house, Laura gets a lecture on how the torture chair for infidels works.


Here’s a visual test to determine whether you’re a positive or negative person. Which shape do you discern better? The positive, or the negative? (Didn’t the one on the left star in “The Ring”?)


Laura finally gets into the Halloween spirit, with a costume sewn especially for her.

And here’s me in my Halloween costume:


I can’t wait to scare the neighbors on Halloween. “Have some candy, infidel chil — Wait, where are you going?”

These photos were actually taken on the Bushes’ current trip to Riyadh, where Laura helped launch a “screening facility in Saudi Arabia Tuesday as part of a U.S.-Saudi initiative to raise breast cancer awareness in the kingdom.”

You mean breasts are legal in Saudi Arabia?! I thought they circumcised those off too.

Bush’s trip to Saudi Arabia, her first to the oil-rich kingdom, is part of a regional tour that aims to highlight the need for countries to share resources and unite in the fight against breast cancer. She was greeted by Prince Faisal bin Abdullah, the king’s son, who is honorary president of the Saudi Cancer Society.

Yup, “Saudi Cancer Society” pretty much sums up Saudi Arabia.

Bush visited the Abdul-Latif cancer screening center, the country’s first, where she met with Saudi women affected by breast cancer…Dr. Samia al-Amoudi, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in April, spoke about the pain she felt when her 10-year-old daughter asked her if she would one day be stricken with the same disease.

She said she told her daughter “hopefully you will be able to tell your children there was once a disease called breast cancer that killed women…”

I thought it was called Islam.

Al-Amoudi said many of the hurdles in Saudi Arabia are not medical. For instance, until recently, it was widely considered socially improper to refer to the disease by name in the kingdom, she said.

Ah, breasts aren’t illegal in Saudi Arabia; only mentioning them is.

“People would refer to breast cancer as ‘the bad disease’ or ‘that disease,’” said al-Amoudi. “But today, when we talk to the highest levels of authority or are speaking in front of all kinds of media about this issue we name the disease for what it is: breast cancer,” she added.

Now if only we could do the same for Islam.
