I had done four comedy gigs out there, and I was nervous about how the American audience would take me. Again, a fabulous surprise! No chauvinism or sexism. No drunken heckles or slurring jibes. Just laughter and smiles and the joy of being told that I sound so elegant even when I say the words "Massive D**K and "Garlic flavoured sperm"
Last month, on 27 March to be exact - a Yemeni man was beheaded in the Saudi Arabian city of Jizan and then had his body 'crucified' (ie displayed in public on a pole). It wasn't a one-off. Last year the Saudi authorities also crucified a Sudanese man after his head had been severed by the executioner.
