Oy! That's embarassing!

The Jerusalem Post:

Israel's ambassador to El Salvador has been recalled following an incident a few weeks ago when, according to Foreign Ministry officials, he was found naked, drunk, bound and gagged in his yard.

Foreign Ministry officials said Monday, after details of the incident appeared in Ma'ariv, that he was recalled because this type of behavior was "unbecoming" an Israeli diplomat. The officials said that in this type situation it was clear that the diplomat could no longer represent Israel effectively in El Salvador.

According to the report in Ma'ariv, police in El Salvador found the ambassador wearing accessories indicating sado-masochistic acts. Although drunk, the paper reported, the diplomat identified himself as the Israeli ambassador. Foreign ministry officials said he was discovered by police who were responsible for the embassy.

It's not his fault! Palestinian terrorists surely must have kidnapped and tortured him with leather straps and devices, then fed him alcohol and then left him in public to embarrass the Israeli government!

Another completely plausible explanation could be that the diplomat, an aspiring thespian, played a supporting role as "the gimp" in a faithful and stylized theatrical remake of Quentin Tarantino's critically acclaimed Pulp Fiction. The diplomat was willing to suffer for his art, but helped numb the painful shackles, probes and spherical encumbrances with alcohol.

Isn't it obvious?
