This week in limericks

There was a young camel in RAK
Whose mother consumed too much crack
Her calf was not deaded
But was born three-headed
And is earning its owner a stack

The Wise Men of Al Shariqah
Have banned everything but the car
Goodbye to the bike
"Because we no like"
The future is smog, fumes and tar

A journo in Umm Al Qawain
Was tricked in a nasty campaign
By police trying to force
Him to give up his source
But they couldn't get him to explain

People of sizes decreased
Are serving Egyptians a feast
A cafe in Cairo
Has ended their giro
All hail to the Dwarves of the East!

There was an old man in Karama
Who wanted some tea with his shawarma
But to his bad luck
They'd banned all the cups
Creating much discord and drama

There was a fish from Dubai
Whose side spelled out something - oh my!
When held in the light,
And turned just so right,
Its name was too sensitive to write!
