Icon23 Paul is a meatball

Comment: A friend recently sent me a short article with a pic of a buffet
sign that said "Paul is dead." According to the article, this is the
transliteration of the word "meatball" into Arabic, and "Paul is Dead" is
the literal English translation as there is no Arabic or Kurdish word for
"meatball."

I kinda hope this one is true.
