My solution to the problem of Islamic women's basketball

New, 2 comments

From SbB , we learn about Islamic women's basketball. Basketball by itself isn't an uncommon sport and in fact may be one of the more common sports out there, but when you add the challenge of playing with only a certain percentage of your body exposed at any given time, it allows for a little bit more of a challenge... And an opportunity!

We have two problems. First is that women's basketball is barely watchable to begin with. Second is that men aren't even allowed to watch Islamic women play basketball for fear that an ankle or nape of the neck be exposed. I propose we take a cue from Brockian Ultra-Cricket as seen in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy :

Put your team and the opposing team in a large field and build a high wall around them. The reason for this is that, though the game is a major spectator sport, the frustration experienced by the audience at not actually being able to see what’s going on leads them to imagine that it’s a lot more exciting than it really is. A crowd that has just watched a rather humdrum game experiences far less life affirmation than a crowd that believes it has just missed the most dramatic event in sporting history.

You see those two birds right there? We just killed them both with one stone.
