Only they picked the wrong guy to attack.

  1. How is it that certain groups of people get their hackles raised by the stupidest of things? I mean, seriously, angry enough to start **beating** someone? It’s like some cultures’ population are all two years old.

    I don’t know much about Turkey, but there are others who are exactly like this and I wonder why all the grown ups left them home alone.

  2. What, no poo flinging? Haven’t I seen that behavior in a few hundred zoo primate videos? Oh, and Ferguson protests?

    Some countries REALLY NEED guns and concealed carry.. Those crazed zoo animals would behave a bit better then.

  3. Red on Red. And he jerked open the cooler. The whole thing tilted.

    The mysterious pugilist has been named as Kuwaiti-born Irish citizen Mohammed Fadel Dobbous by the Hurryiet Daily News.

  4. Dad was stationed all over the middle east during WW2. Had a box full of campaign medals, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia.
    He was a career service man, we lived all over Europe after the war and a lot of the US, never heard him utter a disparaging word about any other culture or people but he had no respect for Muslims.

  5. Well now, that answers the question:
    What kind of Irishman would holiday in Turkey?
    The mudslide kind.
