A young Arab boy asks his father, "What is this weird headress we are wearing?"
The father says, "Why, it is 'geffya' because in the desert it protects our heads from the sun."
"And what is this type of clothing that we are wearing?" asks the young boy.
"It's a 'djbellah' because in the desert it is very hot and it protects the body." says his father.
The son then asks, "And what are these odd shoes on our feet?
His father replies, "These are 'babouches", which keep the burning sands of the desert from burning our feet."
"Then tell me, Baba . . ." replies the boy.
"Yes, my son?"
"Why . . . if we are living in Dearborn, Michigan . . . WHY ARE WE STILL WEARING ALL THIS CRAP?"
