Ahlan ez-Zayyak (Welcome, how you doing?)

Even if you don't know Arabic, or just a few words like me, this video by the Kuwaiti singer Shams is truly hilarious. You gotta see it, and make sure the sound is on!

When you're done laughing, Abu Sinan has a very helpful explanation of the video, and what it means. His February 5 entry on taxes is not what you usually hear, and well worth pondering.
