Saudi Arabia deports 'irresistible' men deemed 'too handsome' to women

Three men were forcibly removed from an annual culture festival in Saudi Arabia and subsequently sent back to the UAE after it was deemed that women could find them irresistible.

The irony of the religious police officers (rest assured they were all men) finding other men irresistible, in a country where homosexuality is illegal and punishable with long prison sentences...

Policeman A: "Policeman B, those men look irresistible!"
Policemen B: "Yes, they are irresistible!"

Anyway, I think we need some pictures of these men so the female posters here can make their judgement.

I was outraged when they deported us but we had little recourse.

Now you can render judgment on whether he's so good looking he should be deported.

Well I've been around way too long to judge on the basis of online pics. But I've sent him mine - just in case*. blissed

He's quite a handsome lad (from some angles) but irresistible? And a threat to Saudi womanhood? Really??

Mind, being deported for being too handsome provides him with a great future chat-up line.

If he wasn't insufferably arrogant before (which I suspect he was, looking at those pics), he certainly will be now Rolling Eyes

Less 'dangerously irresistible' and more 'heavily airbrushed' I'd say judging by some of those pics. No one has skin that flawless!

‘Very lonely’ Crieff pensioner repeatedly inserted hand in horse’s bottom

A pensioner caught with his hand up a horse’s rear end told witnesses that he was “very lonely”.

Well Crieff is a small and lonely place - a one horse town if you will...
