Norks like an Egyptian

I learned something new the other day. While window-shopping in the Mall of the Emirates I came across this display.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that Anubis, the Ancient Egyptian god of embalming and miscellaneous post-mortem business was a bloke. A jackal-headed bloke, but definitely male. I was not aware of any close relative of his, such as a labrador-headed sister.

She's a fortunate therianthrope*, that Ms Anubis. It appears she's the only female who's permitted to stand in full public gaze in Dubai with her tits out.

*(Possibly actually a therigynthrope)

Quite simply the best blog title anywhere, ever.

I absolutely agree with Secret Dubai, the title of this post gave me a really hearty chuckle. Kudos to you!

what is it with all this gender confusion going on? I see there's a cartoon film out called somethig like 'barnyard - the real party animals' or something like that and the hero of this film is a cow, complete with udders, who is voiced and characterised as a male.

What is going on here? Is Holly wood really this dumb or is gender confusion so pandemic that they simply cant tell anymore?

Perhaps theres just so much 'bull' in the cinema industry now they couldnt stand any more

That so not true!
Dubai is full of wooden featured in your face titties.

I am indebted to RabboBeans for advising me that Ms Anubis is in fact named Anput.

She does not have a Labrador head, it is clearly a Doberman head...right?

More amusement at Egypt's expense here.
