Hey, what's the matter with wearing a burka?  (I learned it spelled as burqa
however.)  It brings back memories of college.  As I was leaving the science
library on campus, one of the Malaysian Muslim men turned to his friend and
said, "You know why they wear burqas?" and nodded towards a couple of Malaysian
Muslim women entering the building.  When his friend gave him a quizzed look,
he shot back, "It's so you don't know how fat they are when you marry them."
My Muslim boyfriend appreciated that joke and had to share it with his friends
of course.  That was back in the late 80's.  God, am I dating myself...
