I'm Serious About This, I'm Wondering Why..

Has Bush ever held hands w/ any other world leader? Didn't he hold hands w/ this man before, I think maybe I saw another photo? Inquiring minds want to know.. Does this mean gas prices will actually go down, or will more than hand holding be required?

Serious replies appreciated (is that actually a Saudi custom, sorry I'm ignorant about that), but sarcastic and funny replies are more than welcome


President Bush greets Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah at his ranch in Crawford, Texas Monday, April 25, 2005. President Bush is seeking relief from record-high gas prices and support for Middle East peace as he opens his Texas ranch to Abdullah. Saudi Arabia is the world's largest oil producer.

It is not unusual to find men holding hands in Saudi. I'll check with my wife (she lived there for a few years) but I think this is part of Saudi culture.

I saw it live on TV and yes they were holding hands. I also thought it was weird, maybe the Prince was not on steady footing? Maybe it is a custom.

It's a custom, and Saudi men also kiss to greet each other.

They just have to make sure not to "hold hands" or "kiss" each other, because then they'll get their heads chopped off.

Fuck Saudi Arabia. The biggest terrorist bastion of all, and Bush is holding hands with their leader.

Perfectly normal. I spent the first 18 years of my life getting kissed by men with a predeliction for facial hair, and it was not pleasant. Sure, I kissed them back, but my face was as smooth as a baby's bottom. The hand-holding is part of everyday life, but I never took part in that, never knowing where anyone's hands had been in the first place. Make sure you dont' kiss women though, or hold their hands in public. Now, thats a no no.

it does truly boggle the mind.

my fantasy straight-girlfriend Wonkette has this to report: "Is that really a picture of President Bush holding hands with Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Abdullah? No. It's a picture of President Bush "man-handing" the Crown Prince, which, we're certain the NY Times will eventually inform us, is the new term for totally heterosexual same-sex hand-holding. How can you tell it's man-handing rather than some kind of preliminary homosexual courtship ritual? Because Bush and Abdullah are frolicking through a field of Texas Bluebonnet wildflowers. If they were gay, they'd be doing something super-manly like roping steers."
