I want a t-shirt that says "I told you so" in Arabic

I am now enjoying a smug moment.

A couple of weeks ago I told MoBob that he should wear his "I Love Little Rock" t-shirt when he enters the US.

He laughed.

Then this morning on NPR I heard that a passenger on a JetBlue flight was not allowed on board because he wore a t-shirt with Arabic writing.

Well! I told you so.

You know what would be the ultimate in fun irony with t-shirts? A shirt with Rush Limbaugh on it, and one of his sayings ("See, I told you so", "Rush is right", etc) on it in Arabic. That'd probably make national news. :))

I wish I knew Arabic to do this - I don't trust MoBob, he'll probably write something like "That outfit makes you look fat."

I have a bunch of friends who speak Arabic who are laughing at this entry and saying "I'll write it for her!" :)

Good to know...if I ever quit international development I can design t-shirts in languages I can't read.
