Both Sex and Cities Banned in Dubai!

The other night I was hanging out in a pub, effaciously called "the pub" in dubai, where there was an angry whino who was obsessed with the telivision phenonoma known as sex in the city. Sex in the city is making a new movie and part of it was to be filmed in dubai (conflicting reports state it was to be filmed in abu dhabi). Apparently the goverment of the UAE was excited until their oversensitive censors found out about it, and put the ax on the project because of the word "sex". Word is that They offered to rename the film "love in the city"; even though love is a good value, city was also banned.
Now the thing that was hillirious was that the drunk fellow was upset because he thought the sex in the city movie (I mean love in the suburb) would cause a second boom for the UAE. Tourists would come to explore there huge ass shopping malls, do indoor skiing, pose at the top of the burj khalifa, fall in love with an oil sheik, have a steamy affair with one of the rich exparts on jumaria island palms, and of course do the traditional camal treck with hilarious results.
No doubt we remember the boom in the foot tattoo movie after the first movie....
