way way OT

I have ranted in the past a bit about how American media leaves most with the impression that the Middle East is some monolith. A peek inside the Middle Eastern blogosphere is Saudijeans.org. A recent post has some musings on a trip to Egypt.

But in that post he makes reference to having "Met the one and only Sandmonkey" which in context sounds like he is talking about the somewhat controversial Egyptian blogger at sandmonkey.org. I think, but really can't be sure if it wasn't intentional, that he made a typo and actually put in a link for sandmonkey.com which I would try to describe, but just can't. Suffice it to say I laughed, I cried and more than once choked going though the 40 or so pages. Think Borat or maybe it's like O meets Bill Bryson.... that or it really is an a new version of a Numbers Station.
