and the winner is …

A medical test being developed by Kuwait will be used to ‘detect’ homosexuals and prevent them from entering the country – or any of the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC), according to a Kuwaiti government official. GCC member countries – Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates – already deem homosexual acts unlawful.

This controversial stance is being toughened, according to Yousouf Mindkar, the director of public health at the Kuwaiti health ministry. He told Kuwait newspaper Al Rai: ‘Health centres conduct the routine medical check to assess the health of the expatriates when they come into the GCC countries. However, we will take stricter measures that will help us detect gays who will be then barred from entering Kuwait or any of the GCC member states.’ [more]

Congratulations, there, fellas!
Couldn’t go to a more deserving group.

(What? Nah, I dunno, either; but I’m sure it’ll be frikkin’ IPCC-quality brilliant.)

    So, a culture that cannot build a factory to make bicycles
    has developed the first rod smoker radar!

    If the device has an alarm, this is what it would look like.
    (Wait for it:)

    I guess the tried and true test of having a suspected homosexual sit on a Koran and see if they burst into flames isn’t working anymore?

    It’s just a cultural difference. We need to respect their culture. (cough)

    This is being done by the Muslims, who get a free pass in the worldwide drive-by media.

    Let a Christian say boo or refuse to do business with a homosexual, and it’s front page.

    One day, this will all be corrected.

    If it is successful, it will be the first time that a device is created to detect behavior. It may lead to the first reliable lie detector.

    But also, if it is successful, it will completely shut down air travel in the middle east. Only women will be able to travel on airplanes.

    Too easy. It’s just a tapered dowel with marks along it. Just like a jeweler’s ring gauge, but somewhat thicker. It’s called the Islamic GoatseScope.

    And if that fails, they always have the two little bells the Catholic priest joke has been using for generations.

    How do they calibrate it regularly to make sure it is accurate?
    Are scimitars needed in calibration? Goats?

    I would have thought it easier to ask the subject to sing his favorite showtune a cappella or choose between two throw pillows. (yeah, I know, but still funny)
