Sorry, the ambassador is tied up now…

March 13, 2007

If you have an upcoming appointment to see the Israeli ambassador in El Salvador, you might want to reconfirm it. It turns out he has been recalled to Israel, after being found naked, drunk, bound and gagged, with sex toys lying nearby in the yard of his official residence, according to Israeli media reports.

A Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said his behavior was “unbecoming of a diplomat.

Actually, not to put too fine a point on it, but that sounds kind of unbecoming of just about any human being, really. “Look, honey, our crazy neighbor is tied up naked in the yard again! Oh, wait, he’s not an ambassador anymore, so I guess it’s perfectly okay!”

Robert, I think your comment that being drunk bound and gagged and using sex toys is “unbecoming of just about any human being” is offensive towards masochists. Nothing wrong with a bit of faux-rape bum play.
