My Mideast Punchlines: can’t get it up; can’t get it in

An Egyptian MP has stirred controversy after rejecting tougher penalties for those who force women into genital mutilation (FGM), saying half of the country’s men “are impotent”.

Parliament last week approved longer jail terms for those carrying out FGM, following the death of a teenage girl.

MP Ilhami Agina responded by saying FGM was needed in order to reduce women’s sexual appetite, to match Egypt’s men.

The procedure is still widespread in Egypt despite being illegal since 2008.

Small FistOther than to point out that it’s a good thing the initial of Mrs Agina’s middle name isn’t V, my lips are, er, sealed.
