Domino's delivers
When it comes to the king of Jordan, it's a bit of an understatement to say Domino's delivers. That's because during a May visit to Washington, he collected 14 topping-stacked pies to take home to Amman. His embassy called two stores owned by Domino's Team Washington boss Frank Meeks. The caller to the suburban Virginia store asked that the pies be cooled before being boxed so they wouldn't get all steamy or stale. Meeks's Georgetown store got the order for pies with "five times the sausage," said a Domino's spokeswoman. The Secret Service picked up the pizzas, and King Abdullah threw an $80 tip on the $120 tab. He must have liked 'em a lot because just last week, while his jet was in Washington, his aides collected five more pies from Meeks to take back to Jordan.

jrf are sick

they don't know what to do from good. he sent personal jet to buy pizzas




another article



Next time you visit the king of Jordan, we know exactly what you can bring him as a gift: Domino's pizzas.

When King Abdullah was visiting Washington in May, he asked for 14 pizzas to take back to Amman, U.S. News & World Report's Paul Bedard reports in his Washington Whispers column. His embassy called two stores, one in Crystal City and the other in Georgetown, with varying instructions. The Crystal City order was to be cooled before being boxed so they could remain fresh. (Good call -- soggy pizzas are the worst.) The Georgetown branch was asked to include "five times the sausage," according to a Domino's rep. The Secret Service picked them up, paid the $180 tab and left the king's $80 tip.

And there's no stopping Abdullah's cravings. Just last week he sent his personal jet to retrieve five more. He's the king of the country; can't he open his own chain?

Well, they've got dominoes in Jerusalem, which is only 40 miles away from Amman, should he get another craving. And if she wanted them, that was very thoughtful of him. I don't see that he sent a private jet just for that.

She is extravegant. Just because she wearing outfits or jewells (or her gem encrusted gold shoes) worth thousands of dollars more than once does not make her un-extravegant. :)

get a stinking life.

you have GOT to be kidding me!!! rania recycles a clutch, scarf, dress and a blouse and she is now some hero of the thrift store!!!

puhlease, let us go ask the average jordanian woman how many evening clutches they have or how many elie saab gowns are taking up space in their oversized closet.....this is pathetic.

if you are so impressed with rania, balqis, that you think recycling a designer scarf warrants praise-then so be it. but i think it is despicable. you have very obviously never travelled anywhere near the arab world or know any arabs to think this woman is worthy of such devotion.

every last jordanian friend i have laughs at and ridicules the "hand bag queen" for her extravagance-and they CAN afford it!!!!

Hi there.

This subject has been so many times, and in has been the source of many a heated argument! I, too, can't believe that anyone who knows anything about the ME (economically, politically, and culturally) would regard Rania as anything other than extravegant, particularly given the economic status of her subjects. Anyway, all too often people ar e taken in by the glitter and glamour of 'royalty' (not necessarily anyone here), and neglect the substantive governance issues and consequences of such conspicuous consumption.

The point of my post is to refer you to the thread titled "Rania's Gold Shoes". It's a good read. There are a couple of other ones titled Queen Rania and Queen Rania's spending, IIRC. Lots of good heated debates.

Cheers,

Sean.

On the same token, are Britain and the US 'underdeveloped', 'third world' countries? How much foreign aid do Britain and the US get? What percentage of the population in the US, Britain, and even Morocco live in refugee camps? What is the unemployment rate in Britain and the US compared to Jordan? The average income of the Jordanian family & their tax rate? What's the GNP of Jordan? Are any ethnic groups officially discriminated against in Britain and the US? How many palaces does the US President have use of? And HM the QE II in comparison to King Abdullah? -- Remember, Jordan has a fraction of the population of thethe UK and US.

Just another perspective, that's all. :)

my point was that the kings and queens in any country do not live in the same level of the average people, what ever was this average. and the people live in the refugee camps are not jordanians, unless the whole world (GB in particular) should live in poverty in sympathy with the refugees of the world .. I like that:) .
