Urban Outfitters--Again

Apparently Urban Outfitters is now selling khaffiyehs as 'woven anti-war scarves'.

These are, I guess, different from knitted anti-war scarves.

I am taking this opportunity to affirm my belief that the most valid use for a khaffiyeh is to prevent Arab gentlemen from getting sunstroke. It is not meant to be worn as a winter neck scarf, nor for college girls to cover their faces at rallies.

Oh, and I just saw "Yossi and Jagger", and if someone gave me a woven anti-war scarf right now, I would be using it to mop up my tragic-movie-ending tears.

Woven anti-war scarf?

Very nice table-cloths!

I have three. They cover my table very nicely. And no-one would recognize my table at a rowdy protest anyhow.

I had heard that they were recently pulled off the shelves- I hope so.

If they want to sell khafiyyehs, I really don't care. Assuming that the style is recognizably 'anti-war'--that I have a BIG problem with.

Hmm, don't know if I would call it a table cloth.. but I do wish that they had punk t shirts from Urbane Couture
