A fine idea by an Iraqi

So the first Iraqi "Craigslist" is open for business (article). That's pretty cool, and I applaud the guy for getting it off the ground. One small step for capitalism, one giant dam ready to burst and drown the people in excess, just like us. Seriously though, good job. I wonder if his tech support will go to... ah, nevermind.

Hi, thank you for calling Alli BaBahList. How can I assist you today?

My camel is no longer listed.

Your camel sir, I am very sorry to hear that. Lets see what I can do to help. Do you have a camel?

Of course I have a camel.

Okay, we are here to assist. Is it for sale?

Why else would it be on Alli Babahlist?

That is very nice sir. Remember, here at Alli Babahlist we are here to assist. Did you post it on Alli Babahlist?

Oh my Allah! Yes YES! I posted it. It is not there!

So sir, is your camel missing? Here at Alli Babahlist we try to make your experience the best possible.

Allah save us. Stupid tech support. Yes, I mean, NO! I have the camel. It is right here. I want to post it on your site.

Yes sir, we are here to help -

I know, on Alli Babahlist. Just can you help me?

Certain sir, since we are -


Yes sir, was there anything else we can help you with?


Can we help you with anything else sir? Did you find our support enjoyable on a scale of 1 to 10?

Allah spare me! No, I did not. Can you transfer me to some guy in Afghanistan or India? Is there anyone higher up who can assist me?

I am sorry you feel that way sir. I am certain we can work things out. Here at Alli Babahlist we are here for you.

No no no! Forget it.
