Islamic Rebublic of Pakistan : Epic Fail

Islamic Republic of Pakist Epic Fail
So its 11:00Pm on a friday night, we’re smoking a couple of cigerettes ( yes your prick when I say cigerette’s I mean just cigerettes) and there is a shop in front of us with a big board that said ‘Imported’ something something. So we went in to see a couple of sneakers ( I think we’re all suckers for oldschool retro converse sneakers) got in there and the my eyes first spots some kick ass langerie and I was like oolala mari (the mate) thats some cool langerie right? He looks at me and goes dude its evening wear. I just stood there for a couple trying to imagine that little peice of black and red lace as evening wear.
Got out of the store still standing like idiots still waiting for the other guys. A new black Corolla stops near us with a couple of middle ages men in it. The window rolls down ( and I’m thinking fuck what did I do this time) and the guy goes like “Do you know where KatHouse is?” in response when he see’s our absolute blank faces he tries to give us a hint by saying “It’s here somewhere isn’t this babar plaze”. And yes we’re still blank, so in order to help us out he goes on to explain what he is looking for “Jee KatHouse the bar/club/disco”. In order to assure us their not kidding the uncle with the white beard from the back rolls down and peeks from the middle. And yes, we’re still staring in mid-air. Then mari goes like why don’t you ask some shop keeping, cause till now we were so sure he’s just messing around with us.
But when he goes to the ‘Imported evening wear ‘ shop and asks the guy, we were pretty convinced on Islamic Republic of Pakistan being an EPIC FAIL!

So its 11:00Pm on a Friday night, we’re smoking a couple of cigarettes ( yes your prick when I say cigarette’s I mean just cigarettes) and there is a shop in front of us with a big board that said ‘Imported’ something something. So we went in to see a couple of sneakers (I think we’re all suckers for old school retro converse sneakers) got in there and my eyes first spots some kick ass lingerie and I was like Olalla Mari (the mate) that’s some cool lingerie right? He looks at me and goes dude its evening wear. I just stood there for a couple trying to imagine that little piece of black and red lace as evening wear.

  1. hmm, i agree with Zaki too. it really isn’t a big deal, it could have been worse. it’s better to just not judge, live and let live as he says.

    plus, none of us are saints.. so we should just make ourselves live up to the name and not worry so much about a few rotten apples. i mean, there is this side to all of this but then there is another side as well, a side that u might have not seen a lot of but doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. there r still people there in Pakistan who r true devout Muslims. I don’t think Pakistan is an epic fail.

  2. Nothing to go bonkers over. Could have been worse. The men in the car could’ve taken u by forces and kept you for days.
    =D

    I agree with Zaki on this one. Live and let live mate.
    Clean out your own closet. Dont worry about everyones wardrobe.

  3. Oh, look what’s talking now. Loyalty to the name – for the win. And of course that’s exactly what you would want, change the name but not try to live up to it.

    But as long as ‘islamic’ is defined by ‘sex or no sex’, ‘booze or no booze’, ‘prado or no prado’, ‘veil all women but watch porn at home’, ‘hash but not booze’, ‘booze but not sex’, ‘sex but not murder’, ‘murder of 1 but not 100’ … etc etc. there is no point arguing about it. Get over it. Its just a word that stuck.

  4. =/ kya chahtay ho?

    ur like Lennon who says ‘imagine no possessions’ when he himself has billions. Go to Afghanistan to experience the spirituality. Live n let live, don’t judge.
