RIYADH, KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA - Saudi Arabia, the oil rich Gulf state, has continued its attempt to shake its bad reputation as a regressive, brutal dictatorship by joining the British motoring show Top Gear, replacing host Chris Evans, who left the show recently.
This follows Saudi Arabia joining a UN panel on human rights, which prompted criticism from the international community given Saudi Arabia's lack of, y'know, the aforementioned human rights.
Saudi humoured these ridiculous and baseless accusations, saying that they had a pristine human rights record and if you challenged that you'd be detained without trial and summarily executed.
A Saudi spokesperson said on their joining Top Gear: "It is a wonderful opportunity to showcase what Saudi Arabia has to offer. We want to bring Saudi Arabian characteristics to the show."
The proposed ammendments include Kuffar (infidel) in a reasonably priced car, stonings and public executions to replace the typical jovial banter amongst the Top Gear hosts and compulsory veils for women in the audience.
A spokesperson addressed concerns that the state would bring intolerance to the show by stating that Saudi is still more tolerant than former host, Jeremy Clarkson.
