*GANGSTAPIMP PHALLIC SYMBOLS:
In the olden days, fat men called “muezzins” used to walk up a corkscrew staircase inside these structures, technically knows as "minarets". On arriving at a balcony, they would suddenly start yodeling. This was a prearranged signal for the faithful to start praying as hard as they could.
Nowadays there are no muezzins, and the yodeling is played on tape through loudspeakers.
Nonetheless, Gangstapimp camel exchanges are always equipped with a couple of minarets anyway, just to intimidate the local population.
In this manner thousands of tons of cement are wasted on arrogant status symbols, to the detriment of the environment.
