Towel Heads

Recently I received a warning about the use of this politically incorrect term, so please note, we all need to be more sensitive in our choice of words.

I have been informed the Islamic terrorists, who hate our guts and want to kill us, do not like to be called "Towel Heads", since the item they wear on their heads is not actually a towel, but in fact, a small folded sheet.

Therefore, from this point forward, please refer to them as "Little Sheet Heads."

Thank you for your support and compliance on this delicate matter.

If it's a sheet, how come it looks like my grandma's table cloth? :-)

Ok, this next statement will be totally politically incorrect.

You should see them when they are wearing all their robes and trying to ride bikes.

The time the one guy in our hood got his sheet caught in the bike chain I nearly peed my pants from laughing so hard.

One of my former supervisors was originally from Pakistan. He had me almost pissing myself laughing one day when he started talking about "Pull Starters".

When he noted my confusion regarding the term he explained:

"If they have a dot on their foreheads, they're 'push starts'" (mimes pushing a button on someone's forehead) "If they wear a turban, they're 'pull starts'" (Then he mimed grabbing the end of a wound turban and yanking on it like starting a lawn mower)
