There were celebrations at Dubai International Airport this morning when it was revealed that the airport had been congratulated on the cleanliness of its toilet facilites - in the face of the most unbelievable filth imaginable to man.
Moys Kenwood, a British man who travelled through the airport on Friday, told how he visited them, ostensibly to wash his hands, but found the facilities so clean, that he ventured into one of the cubicles to inspect them.
"Everything was spick and span. Totally spotless. You could have eaten your dinner off the floor. Indeed, I did."
He also said, however, that some of the 'customers' weren't quite as clean. He said:
"Some of the noises that were emanating from the cubicles left a lot to be desired. The straining and chundering made me feel quite sick. One poor fellow sounded as if he was having a baby. Another was chanting some sort of karmic mantra before his bowels finally let go."
He congratulated the Arabic workers, when he laughed:
"It was horrific. I take my hat off to the hardworking staff who manage to keep those toilets clean. They must use chisels."
