The breastfeeding fatwa: It sucks!

The male workers let out a chuckle
"Mr. Ezzat should be firm and not buckle.
We are starting to drool,
At the thought of a rule,
Where every female colleague we can suckle!"

It seems there is a high buzz around this fatwa both in the blogworld and in nursing homes, where nursing is to take on a new meaning.

What a knocker!
