This Week's Track 9 - The Boy With The Arab Strap

In connection with my new graveyard job at the Malaysian censorship board, I am here to set a song title straight. Now Belle & Sebastian have this popular number called The Boy With The Arab Strap. What da heck is a boy doing with an Arab strap? I officially deem that title to be either offensive to boys, offensive to Arabs or contextually ignorant. Therefore, all prints of Belle & Sebastian albums in Malaysia shall be edited to reflect a new title for this song, which I shall officially deem as "grammatically incomplete" and which I too shall complete.

Here are my options:

1. The Boy with the Arab Strapped on his Back
2. The Boy with the Arab Strapped on his Horse
3. The Boy with the Arab Strapped on Another Arab
4. The Boy with the Arab Strapped on An Arab Boy
5. The Boy with the Arab Strapped on A Boy's Arab

I'm thinking of going with number 5. This way, we can... what? They don't stock Belle & Sebastian in Malaysian cd stores anyway? What a bloody waste of time.
