Saudi Arabia Deports Men For Being Too Handsome


Submitted By Darren Smith, Weekend Contributor

No, this is not The Onion website. Reportedly Omar Borkan Al Gala and two other attractive men were deported by Saudi Arabia because they were too handsome and debauchery would ensue.

Telegraph reports the men were delegates of the United Arab Emirates for the Jenadrivah Heritage and Cultural Festival. They attracted more than just the ladies it seems.

In another bizarre enforcement action by the Commission for Virtue and the Prevention of Vices they were cast off due to their fearsomely attractive looks. A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission members feared female visitors could fall for them.

The UAE released an official statement indicating that the religious police were anxious over the unexpected presence of an unnamed female artist in the pavilion.

“Her visit to the UAE stand was a coincidence as it was not included in the program which we had already provided to the festival’s management,” Saeed Al Kaabi, head of the UAE delegation to the festival, said in a statement.

Due to this unspeakable condition, the three were swiftly deported, restoring normalcy to the virtuous.

The commission certainly had it on good authority that attractive men can sweep women away, to be corrupted by the unscrupulous, and partaking in morally unsound pleasures.


Afterward, they surely would be cast aside by these men, forcing otherwise virtuous women to live forever-after in shame as spinsters, fallen from grace and outcast from polite society.

  1. considered the note to self. The white guys for the most part are from a time when i went to movies and appreciated the good looking men. it was also a time when there was no opportunity for black men. good news for me: inoticed that a list of all white men had something missing. i used affirmative action to see if there were black men who qualified. lo and behold there are many.

  2. Paul, silly man, didn’t you know that only citations from Left-leaning sources are allowed?

    I read an article about how boys develop communication skills a bit slower than girls. They use physical social play to interact and make new friends. When society deems that physical play is inappropriate or to be restricted, you get a lot of little boys with ants in their pants having trouble sitting still or making friends.

    When I pick up my little boy from preschool, the boys all play jets, tag, monster, and pretty much pile on each other like puppies while the girls make daisy chains and chat.

  3. There aren’t many modern actors who can compare with Cary Grant’s blend of elegance and athletic ability. It’s pretty hard to outrun a homicidal maniac in a crop duster, and then calmly request your suit to be sponged. There is not enough wit in modern dialogue. Steven Seagal embodies everything that is wrong with action movies that completely abandon plot.

  4. Nick – so true that the female leads were often more curvy in classic movies, with the exception of the Hepburns and Rita Hayworth (whom I adore.)

    Come to think of it, there were two main body types of successful classic movie queens – the lush curves or the slim figured.

    Balanchine was also instrumental in the trend of making women who look like starved heroine addicts the standard of beauty. Ballerinas had a stronger and healthier physique before his reign.

  5. I love how this whole brouhaha centered around controlling women. ONE female showed up in the men’s exhibit tent and 3 men get deported to avoid any loss of virtue.
