STOCKHOLM (SPINews) -- IKEA, vendor of bookshelves to the world, apparently decided that to peddle its "Billys" in Saudi Arabia it better Photoshop those pesky women out of its catalogue photos.
For western consumption, the catalogue shows a family, including a young woman, in pajamas and standing at a bathroom mirror.
In Riyadh she’s gone.
Now IKEA admits the goof and says it’s not part of “IKEA Group values."
In its new catalogues bound for the Middle East, all women now wear burkas.
Sadly, several IKEA catalogues showing women trickled into a few Arab capitals, igniting yet more violent protests including trashing computer desks and torching bookshelves and yelling, "Death to coffee tables you gotta assemble!"
PARIS (SPINews) -- Major Fargo Frango, Sardonika’s Chief of Security landed in hot water yesterday when President Ruttles caught him sneaking 15 fashion models into his hotel room.
Frango and Ruttles are here to drum up trade, either fair or unfair, and Ruttles is livid his aide, who is married with four children, has embarrassed himself, the presidency, the nation and parts of Alabama and Saskatchewan.
Frango, fighting back tears, told the president, “I just wanted to hear them speak French.”
Mitt Romney was quick to blame President Obama for the incident while riots -- for no apparent reason -- broke out across the Muslim world.
Meanwhile, France bestowed upon Major Frango the Legion of Honor.
