Of course you have four of those!

This narrative is based on a true story.

Abu Pokemon: The lego figurines that I try to get have to be as diverse as possible but it is hard sometimes.
Person A: Home come?
Abu Pokemon: For example it is hard to get female figures.
Person A: How many do you have?
Abu Pokemon: I have a total of more than 30 figures but out of those only 4 are female.
Person A: It makes sense.
Abu Pokemon: What do you mean?
Person A: You are Muslim and you have four figures
Abu Pokemon: No, its a coincidence!
Person A: Of course it is.
Abu Pokemon: It is!
Person A: Right.
Abu Pokemon: I mean it!

This also reminded me of how back in the days, many of my conversations used to start like the following. It was pretty annoying at that time but in retrospect they are funny.

Random Person: So you are a Muslim.
Abu Pokemon:  Yes.
Random Person: Cool, so you can have four wives.
Abu Pokemon: Well, amm, theoretically yes.
Random Person: Dude that is so awesome.
Abu Pokemon: Well, why would you want to have more than one. Isnt it supposed to be hard to have one wife?
Random Person: It is very cool nonetheless!

    4 female legos and 26 male? It sounds like the polygamy is in the opposite direction in this case…

    Marrying another wife is like adding your parents to your Facebook friends list with full access. I mean it’s allowed, but why would you do it? :-p

    Alex, Good point.

    Mezba, Good analogy.

    The four wives conversation is like the ‘do you have hair under that scarf?’ conversation.

    Haha wow major coincidence. So what, does Lego like not make as much female legos?

      Yes that is correct, there are not that many female lego figures.

    Yea! Hehe

    BTW, is there a limit (specific, precise) in the Quran on how many husbands a woman can have? … just wondering 😉

    OMG! Tis such an interesting coincidence=)

    Oh, and Islam basically limits that man can have only four wives, and on certain conditions. No other specifically states “..marry only one”.

    Sorry, I know this wasn’t an islamic discussion but I couldn’t help myself.

    P.S. You are the funniest blogger around=)
