HAHAHAHA.

Next time I see one of my Iranian / Iraqi friends, I shall pass it on. They will laugh too, guaranteed. Even if I have to explain the, er, English idiomatic usage at the end until they get it ...

Political Correctness

In deference to The Archbishop of Canterbury and The Royal Commission
for Political Correctness, it was announced today that the local climate
in the UK should no longer be referred to as "English Weather".
Rather than offend a sizable portion of the population, it will now be
referred as
"Muslim Weather". In other words - "partly Sunni but mostly Shi'ite"
