Yes, you heard me.
The story is that the Pakistani government is having difficulty with their ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Akbar Zib. The problem is that the Saudis refuse to accept him as the Pakistani ambassador. Why? Because his name translates to “biggest dick” in Arabic.
The Pakistani politico in question certainly is a real person. His last station was Pakistan High Commissioner to Canada. But did Saudi Arabia really reject him as Pakistani ambassador? I don’t know. There are plenty of articles around the web on the topic, but they all link back to the same Salem News article, and it provides no links or background information. I’ve found no official corroboration, in English anyway. My old stand-by, Snopes.com, is also currently silent on the issue.
