How low will they go?

This is the front page of today's Times of Oman.

front page

This is not a "fake" front page. There's no other front page behind it. You turn the page and you're in the local section.

@roba: I wouldnt mind that, if only we had a Burger King in muscat? The worst thing is, where I love the burger king is overpriced and doesnt even taste good.

If anyone believes that....lol
