What a Boob!
This Imam (that’s islam speak for preacher) in Egypt has issued an fatwa (that’s islam speak for press release) stating that breast-feeding in the workplace is… wait, I better let this guy explain it.
Ezzat Attiya had issued a fatwa, or religious edict, saying adult men could breast-feed from female work colleagues as a way to avoid breaking Islamic rules that forbid men and women from being alone together.
That’s right ladies of HDW, this guy believes that if the men in the office you work in were allowed to breast-feed off of you, that it would not only allow you to work together, but also increase productivity. I would first like to nominate this guy for Fortune Business Man of the Year. I would love to call this guy “the bomb”, but that may be taken the wrong way. Secondly, I would like to say that I had no idea Dave was doubling as an Imam from Egypt. Lastly, I would like to assure this Imam, that his plan to allow full grown men to breast-feed at work with co-workers will in no way increase productivity. It may increase maternity leave, but that’s about it. Well, besides making all the men in your office really fat!
UPDATE: Q-the-impaler asked why this post titled “What a Boob!” contained no boobs. Well, never say HDW doesn’t deliver… for your viewing pleasure, here are two really big boobs. Giggity-giggity!
