Today I was reminded of a joke I heard a few years ago. It went something like this.
When Hollywood tried to get Dubai to broadcast The Flinstones nationally, the Sheikh balked. In an ironic twist, Sheikh Al Maktoum did not think the zany concept of a technologically advanced prehistoric society could be fathomed by his people. But HE Sheikh Al Maktoum did suggest that they should try to convince the neighboring Emirate to broadcast The Flinstone because even if the people in Dubai would not understand the humor, the people in … Abu Dhabi doo!
