Saudi Arabia’s religious police confiscated all red roses from shops prior to Valentine’s Day.

(Yes, Saudi people can sleep more safely in their beds now that this evil flower, well known for its corrupting influence has been hidden from view.   In a six-page statement, the religious police said they were saving women from “deceiving men”, who used the day to give the fake impression that they loved a woman while pretending to be a “harmless lamb”.  I am looking at the single red rose, given to me by my hubby, in a completely different light now.  I shall have words with my harmless lamb when he comes home tonight.)
