    1) Fold shemagh over flat like a book several times until it is about 2-1/2" across.

    2) Make the 'victim' to open his/her mouth

    3) Place centre of shemagh in mouth.

    4) Tie ends behind head in a reef knot.


    Piece of p!ss !

  7. Just out of interest, what's the difference between a shemagh and a kaffiyeh (as worn by the late Arafat)?

  9. What's the right way to pronounce "Shemagh", anyway?

    (a) "Sh'mag", to rhyme with handbag?

    (b) "Sh'marr", to rhyme with Mark Lamarr?

    (c) "Sh'machkhhkhkh" (in Klingon) to rhyme with something in Arabic?

    or

    (d) none of the above (and if so, what)?
