What do you get when the Taliban turn fashion designers and cross-breed a burkha with a bikini?
You guessed it... the burkini.
"The burkini is a 2-piece (swim)suit incorporating a head covering."
The picture shows only the face and hands are exposed. And though you can't see her legs in the picture, it goes right down to the ankles as well.
Anyway, I think it looks absolutely silly. Going swimming in a burkini will make you stand out in a crowd... like wearing a wet t-shirt with stiff nipples on a cold frosty morning. You will inevitably get a lot of stares and sniggers.
But I firmly believe anyone should be allowed to dress as ridiculously as they want... as long as they don't try to force everyone else to dress the same way.
I'll end with a sean-the-man original joke:
"What do you call sticking duct tape on your eyebrows and ripping it off as violently as you can?"G'night folks.
"A Burkini Wax."
