It Is So Hard To Get Promoted On The Job

Akbar Zib is a Pakistani diplomat who has quite a distinguished record.  However, when he was proposed to be the Pakistan ambassador to the United Arab Emirates, he was soundly rejected.  Just recently, he was proposed as Pakistan's ambassador to Saudi Arabia.  Once again, shot down in flames.

Has nothing to do with his record of service.

Has everything to do with his name.  "Akbar Zib" is Arabic for "biggest dick."  Presumably, they are referring to the sexual connotation.  Here in Illinois, calling a politician "biggest dick" means something a bit different.

So, if you're going to have a kid, please name him or her something dignified, will you?
