Skiing in Afghanistan

I say we gather up all the old school straight skis that we can find
and ship them to Afghanistan. I know, I know, there are some here that
still love to ski that stuff. You can keep yours I guess.

We worry about tree wells - they have to worry about land mines!

I couldn't agree more.

The Afghans are a nation of bandits, and the other peoples of
Afghanistan little better, but so were the Savoyards of the middle ages,
and look at them now - rapacious as ever, they've found a gentler and
more sustainable way of getting all your money.

Going by this precedent, we ought to support the creation of a Kurdish
state, to speak four languages at once and act as a buffer zone between
the others.

Lets also send our old slow ski-lifts to poor countries in the Himalayas
and Karakorum, showing them how to get rich so long as they tolerate
Women and Alcohol.
