The latest on religious improvement: finally the Muslim clerics encourage the men to help out in the kitchen and cook and serve the women!
CAIRO: An Islamic cleric residing in Europe said that women should not be close to bananas or cucumbers, in order to avoid any “sexual thoughts.” The unnamed sheikh, who was featured in an article on el-Senousa news, was quoted saying that if women wish to eat these food items, a third party, preferably a male related to them such as their a father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve. He said that these fruits and vegetables “resemble the male penis” and hence could arouse women or “make them think of sex.”
He also added carrots and zucchini to the list of forbidden foods for women.
The sheikh was asked how to “control” women when they are out shopping for groceries and if holding these items at the market would be bad for them. The cleric answered saying this matter is between them and God.
Answering another question about what to do if women in the family like these foods, the sheikh advised the interviewer to take the food and cut it for them in a hidden place so they cannot see it.

Now if I was married to a Muslim I would change my diet, and refuse to eat anything else but Cucumber salad, cucumber sandwiches, carrot ”stamppot”, zucchini dishes, and bananas on yoghurt for dessert. All of which would have to be prepared for me by hubby…
On the other hand, if I was the husband I would only want to eat Cucumber salad, cucumber sandwiches, carrot ”stamppot”, zucchini dishes, and bananas on yoghurt for dessert, but I wouldn’t cut them up for my wife… you never know… maybe after dealing with all these sexually arousing vegetables there would be room for a second dessert…
