(Some Guy)   It's like "Home Alone," but instead of being in New York, you're in Saudi Arabia. Instead of being left at home, you're left at the airport. Instead of being a rambunctious 8-year-old boy, you're just an infant   (saudiexpatnews.com) divider line

I never saw the movie but always thought it took place in the north suburbs of Chicago.

Are there dingoes in Saudi Arabia?

So just as much like Home Alone as Fried Green Tomatoes, got it.

The sequel took place in New York.

Since this is Saudi Arabia I assume the authorities will throw her in jail for endangering her husband's children.

/wuh woh, aside glance

Kevin was nine in the sequel...

So more like a prequel to "The Terminal"

Mother was promptly beheaded for not being a man?

\Naw, but its nice to see a story out of KSA that doesn't involve the word "bonesaw."

Not going to help the women's rights movement.

Me. Tom Hanks has never made a movie about me.

I'm an interesting person. My life has been filled with tragedy never coming adversity and success and drama. Had those heart-tugging moments when my parents divorced, when my first girlfriend broke up with me two weeks before my first kidney transplant, plus the whole first kidney transplant, plus the second one, plus that time I had cancer after the second one. And the dramatic moments, in life, when I almost didn't survive cancer, conflicts and friendships, passes and fails. Does moments of triumph, getting into graduate school, doing my PhD thesis, my first big scholarship, my first big grant. Making professor.

And lots of levity in comedy and silliness in between.

My life is all the right components for a Tom Hanks movie, drama, comedy, tragedy, tug heartstrings.

so where the hell is the Tom Hanks movie about me, that's what I want to know!?!

Why does Tom Hanks hate me?

Why Tom Hanks, why...

What are the odds of finding anyone there that can fly the kid out?
Surely they can find someone over there that can commandeer a plane.

That headline is the pop culture reference equivalent of Bruce Villanch falling down a flight of stairs.

I wonder how long a baby would survive left in car in Saudi Arabia.
 
2019-03-11 09:49:03 PM  
...instead of being in New York, you're in Saudia Arabia

And instead of previewing the headline, you plod straight ahead.

In her defense, it was new and she totally wasn't used to carrying it around.
 
2019-03-11 09:59:05 PM  
So maybe she took the whole "parents should not hover over their kids and give them the opportunity to learn and develop on their own" just a little too far.

Isn't there more than one daily flight from Jeddah to Riyadh? Rebook the kid on the next flight and mom can pick it up at the arrival gate. Or from the luggage counter.

Eating baked beans out of a corpse.

I'm guessing that if the infant's a boy, the mother was arrested for displeasing him. A girl, and she was sold off as somebody's fourth wife.

Mr Rooney thinks that Sloane is being sexually abused by her dad. Doesn't report it. (I'm surprised Trump hasn't offered him a post in his cabinet).

Judging by "Baby's Day Off" for the Genesis, we should all pray they don't make a game based off of this.

No "Mollah" found the kid to "Groom" as a terrorist for later?
