Q IS FOR QAT

Qat! Yes we all know what it is! A Middle Eastern plant with alkaloids galore in its young and tender leaves, much esteemed for its narcotic properties. This lends it both social and economic importance in many, many corners of the globe.

Some countries attempt to control and regulate qat.







But innevitably qat gets out of the bag.
















When that happens good friends frequently gather to chew the qat.

But this is not really why qat is important.











Qat becomes of premium importance when you have to get rid of a "Q" in a hurry, and there is no "U" available!
