    OT: I’m guessing “berfict” is their rendering of “perfect”, since Arabic is typologically odd in lacking a b/p phonetic distinction.

    I studied linguistics with an Saudi Arabian guy who joked (looong before 9/11) that he should never try to go to an airport with a “pump” in his luggage, it just would not end well. He tended to pronounce the word typology as “tybology.” True story.

    Grilled and fried Kebah. I can tell you – Kebah is somewhat peeved about this.

    I’m sorry, waiter, there’s a gaping whole in this meat. It’s not very attractive. Could I please see the appetizer before it’s been befict?

    For anyone wondering what the Arabic text means, it’s Chickpea (homous, Google Translator) with meat and margarine.
    Oddly enough, “margarine” is misspelled even in the Arabic caption and reads “obesity”.
    “Kebah Naeah” (كبة نية) is babelfish for a local meatball recipe (literally “raw balls”, wih balls being the same word in Arabic for “knit balls”). And the third line is “fried or grilled meatballs”.

    They meant “Perfect” when they said “Berfict” it’s just an arab thing to mix between B and P all the time…
    and the idiot who used google to translate the arabic word for “margarine”, forgot that it has a similar arabic word that means obesity…
