    I suppose there is a story behind Aiasib's picture, but my ignorance of the Rodney King character obviously prevents me to see it....

    Rodney King was the man that was severely beaten by police in Los Angeles in the early 90s. He was black, and it was widely seen as institutional racism When the trial for the police involved ended and they were found not guilty, the 1992 LA Riots began.

    thank you for the explanation and with that background in mind I am afraid I find the caption rather tasteless.

    Thanks for that fill-in Kitdy! I hope everyone reads it before voting..

    edit: I admit, it is not the most tasteful photo submitted, but in my defence King was a criminal and drug dealer..and the rules permit sardonicism, just this once. :P

    edit edit: if there is anyone who truly takes offense, then I will withdraw the entry no harm doneplskthx.

    hahaha I guess I know whats happened there. Let me analyze this situation for u guys.

    The black car belongs to a guy, and the blue car belongs to his girlfriend. They both setting in the black car (since its larger than the blue one) and having sex. Here in Kuwait, sex in a public place not allowed, especially in public parking lot in the peach.

    Hard luck stupid guy, go find another place
