Default A silly question

Hi,
I am off to Dubai next week to celebrate my 60th birthday and have what is probably a very stupid question!
Is it ok to take and play the game “Pass the pigs”? Obviously I do not wish to offend or upset the locals.
Thanks in advance for any input.

Regards
Mike

Plenty of pigs in Dubai. They come in all forms and shapes although they're usually wearing oversized white thobes.

You'll be fine. Just have it in your checked in luggage.

This is a BE Question of the Year.

Hope you have the most fab time in Dubai for your 60th.

I organised a stopover there for my husband for his 50th several years ago. This lot here were really helpful with that.

I sent him back to his mother as well for a couple of weeks.

Slightly off topic, I used to take your comments with pinch of salt thinking surely ME can't be that bad. I moved to Doha couple of months ago and already looking for a rope and place to hang myself for this stupidity.

Fantastic game.

I own in and live in Dubai so feel free to enter my office and challenge the Grand Master if you dare.
