A Good Question............

A Good Question............

A young Arab boy says to his father:

 'May I ask you a question father?

 'Of course' replies his father.

 'What is that strange thing you wear on your head?'

 'It's a shemagh, it protects your head from the hot sun when you're in the desert.'

'I see, and what's the robe you wear?'

'That's a burnoos, it protects your body from the hot sun when you're in the desert.'

 'Ah, I understand, and what are those shoes for?'

 'They are called babouches, to stop your feet being burnt on the hot desert sand. Do you have any more questions?'

 'Only one father....... why do you wear them when we are living in Melbourne ?'
