A delicious arrest

A while ago we were watching the late night news as we were settling in for the night.

Teeth brushed, Jim-Jams on... I'm packing away some stuff on the bedside table, when Steph looks at me pipes up "Salty Eggs"


Turns out Bin Laden's driver had been sentenced. A Britsh reporter dictated a victorious article where the driver Salim Hamdan was sentenced to 5 &1/2 years prison.

"Ham Dan" is Chinese for Salt Preserved Eggs (literal translation: Salt Eggs), and is a delicacy that is enjoyed by thousands of Asians.

So Bin Laden had a salty egg for a driver.

It seems the more they learn of another language the stranger the spots it seems to turn up in.
