Northern Saudi Arabia experienced a very rare snowfall a few days ago. Saudis, unaccustomed to snow - especially accumulations - reveled in the rare opportunity and spontaneously initiated snowball fights and building of snow sculptures.

Muslim clerics were quick to clamp down on the fun, reminding people that Islam forbids imitations of the forms of people or animals. Police quickly destroyed a snow camel a proud resident created outside his home.

Some people are not happy. One blogger wrote:

“We have snow for fleeting days, maybe even hours, and there is always someone who wants to rob us of the joy and the fun,” he posted. “It seems that the only thing left for us is to sit down and drink coffee,” he said.

Oxford University Press, one of the world's biggest publishers of textbooks, has issued guidance to authors to avoid any mention of pigs or anything pork-related so as not to offend Jews or Muslims.

British MP (and Muslim) Khalid Mahmood said "That's ludicrous. That's absolute, utter nonsense and when people go too far that actually brings the whole discussion into disrepute."

Jewish leaders responded by noting that Jews and Muslims are forbidden from eating pigs, not from being aware of their existence or using the word.

Sounds as regional as brain flatulence to me.

I dunno VA, I've heard the term "Tree Surgeon" used a lot more that arborist...maybe it's regional?

I've heard the term, it just makes me laugh. I wonder if he uses a Wd. D. after his name.

Apparently the reason I've heard it before and you haven't is that the term "arborist" is preferred in the US, while tree surgeon is common in the UK and other Commonwealth countries.

More than 12 years and these little sticking points between Canadian and American english still trip me up sometimes.

Sounds like the guy was getting so high he didn't need a ladder to do his job.

I've heard the name before. Basically where they remove diseased or dangerous limbs on large trees, or clears some that are obstructing something like a power line.

A little more involved than "landscaper".
