THIS is meat

Hubby and Abed have this private language together. Two peas in a pod they are - Canadian/Israeli Jew and Palestinian. I was privy to their secret society as I sat in the car with them on our way to work.

THIS is meat, pointed out Abed to Hubby.

I figured out it is what they call women they see on the street with nice shapes and even not so nice shapes - in my opinion.

Abed said it in such a monotone voice, and when I turned around to look at him, he had absolutely no expression on his face. THAT was hilarious. And they do this routine every day on their way to work. This is meat. That is meat.

I had to buy a monthly pass for my daughter at the Central Bus Station in Jerusalem. I passed by droves of restaurants and coffee shops. They had a McDonalds serving a McShwarma. I kid you not. This is a real McDonalds catering to a Middle East crowd. Real McSchwarma. I could just see Osama bin Ladin scurrying over to the nearest Pakistani McDonalds or wherever the fuck he is ordering a MCshwarma. It doesn't get any better than that. Now THIS is meat.

I love the irony of a McSchwarma, but for every Mc... there has to be a ..., so what is a Schwarma? (speaking as a gentile of course!)

Schwarma is traditionally made out of lamb but nowadays they use turkey and it is roasted on a long skewer vertically. Cannot describe it too well. It is delicious. I'm sure they have shwarma in London! I know you're not in London though, and there's probably no middle eastern shops in Cornwall, but one never knows.
