Smashed!

The class is about to start. The teacher is waiting for the last few to show up. He clicks on internet explorer (his laptop hooked to a projector) which navigates to CNNs homepage.
One of the major headlines totaly embarasses me:

"Honor" Rape: 5 Pakistanis Held

well not as a class, but some of my colleauges did inquire what it was all about. I had to put the best sping I could, but how could one make this sound right. Beats Me!

I guess one can only play it down a touch but at the end of the day generalizations leave us little beyond justifications and explainations!

Cocaine said...

ill call that face saving and a rather lame attempt at that too.

hope you didn't get one of those *weird* looks.. :|

sonia I didnt mean to make the act it self sound right - that wasnt the idea. I just wanted to avoid a people developing yet another stereotype about home - which is so very common.

shaima - i didnt get one of THOSE looks - canadians dont generally give THOSE looks, unless you start talking how about gay marriage is just not right. Thats when someone of them could give you THAT look, but not all of them.
