One Point Four Billion Dirhams. Itisalot.

The lovely Etisalat have just announced a third quarter profit of Dhs 1.4 billion. This is an increase of 41% on the same period last year.

I thought we had laws against obscenity in this country.

Obscene profits for shite service. Blinding!

Actually, that's 'only' 700 million, once the gubment takes their cut for allowing Etisalat the pleasure of doing us up the botty.

With apologies to Alan Jay Lerner, and sung to the tune of Camelot

It’s true! It’s true!
The sheikhs have made it clear
The profit must increase throughout the year.

A law was made a distance moon ago here:
The proxy falls on sites that are too hot
And there’s no legal way to have a go here
At Itisalot.
Flickr was haram until September
Who knows, for how long, it we have got
By order, Skype remains a distant treasure
By Itisalot.

Itisalot! Itisalot!
I know it sounds a bit bizarre
But with Itisalot, Itisalot
That’s how conditions are.
The speed of the connection’s sleep-inducing
Sometimes the websites simply don’t appear
In short, there’s simply not
A more unhappy lot
Of clients wanting pandering
Than those of Itisalot.

Itisalot! Itisalot!
I know the service it appalls
But at Itisalot, Itisalot
They’ve got you by the balls.
Don’t expect much assistance from the helpdesk.
The answer that it’s your fault will appear.
In short, there's simply not
A more unhappy lot
Of clients for du servicing
Than those of Itisalot.

Damn. And Prometheus thought his parody 'Block of VoIP' was smart. NZM takes the cake. No, wait, it ain't iftaar yet.

Mebbe Prometheus should've copyrighted Itisalot. He'd have made enough money to pay Itisalot bills. Wot?
