“It’s a ‘djbellah’ because in the desert it is very hot and it protects the body.” said the father.

His father replied, “These are ‘babouches”, which keep us from burning our feet in the desert.”
“Tell me,” added the boy.
Yes, my son?”
“Why are you living in Dearborn , Michigan and still wearing all this $hit?”
