The Fox network’s news affiliate in Philadelphia has a tip for Americans who are having a hard time affording summer vacation this year. If you watch this short video, you’ll see they interviewed a very attractive blond lady named Jennifer Doncsecz, president of VIP Vacations. She recommends thinking “outside the box” and going to Egypt, where the American dollar is worth 20 times the Egyptian pound and where, she says, there is an increasing friendliness toward Americans:
People say, “Oh but that’s the Middle East.” Well it’s northeast Africa, it’s not really the Middle East. “Oh but,” they say, “that’s Muslim.” But you know what, the Muslim society has no crimes against women. They leave their doors unlocked, so it’s very safe at night.
No blond jokes, please.
I’d counter that this is actually thinking inside the box — a very specific, rectangular box.
