Don't think so. This is in an article in one of the major news papers in Sweden. And the story is about Bäckstedt taking part in the Tour of Qatar.

That is obviously a Turkish Doughnut Hawk and it's keeper. They are hanging out, waiting for the "prey" to appear near a feeding station.

You get one free with your 1000th trip to the buffet, and if you bring your own tablecloth, they give you a 10% discount.

I think the Arab guy is very uncomfortable and offended being so close to a man in spandex, showing that much leg.

I would watch ruffling with ANTHYING belonging to Chuck Norris. You may find yourself facing that fist that is underneath his beard.
