The amusement of the new presidency. I thought of the amusement, this idea of shabby sheik, then found there was an actual sheik that fit the character not too badly, someone who
wears shabby clothes and attaches no importance to losing money or
failure. then I thought, this guy is like the new president, the plane,
the money, women around him, failure doesnt matter, what happens with
whatever he does does not matter, same thing, different bottle. so this
guy is out there in several shapes, not just one. Check out the infographic of this amusement, it gives a warm perspective of what you read with the amusement.
Summary of the amusement.
Watched by a ceiling camera inside the Florentia Moenia casino in Macau, teleoperator Clarity Nice joins the woman watching her, videographer
Plum Bailey, in a live dealer gambling room broadcasting over the
internet. Plum leads Clarity with her on board Heir Force One, the plane
of Sheik Haroun Al-Najib, known colloquially as Hari, after offering to
him the luxurious ring made by the firm Mauboussin, brought by Clarity
to Macau, which points to an ancient sorority identified by a symbol
known as the 'incomplete triangle'. Rejected by his family, known as the
dumbest human loss-making machine of the Emirates, Hari likes to wear
shabby clothes, which include a sweater with growths patched with puffs
of woolfiller, ripped jeans, worn out brown leather shoes with one of
the soles open, and housing several white pebbles.
bachelor with a solid reputation of lacking qualification and being
indecisive whatever he does, Hari has not decided to marry, and is
confused by all the women around him, who want to be near him in order
to enjoy the affluent lifestyle of 'HDH', His Dumb Highness, as everyone
else but himself thinks of him. Hari does not care about failure, and
sees it as something inherent in business and in general.
a nuisance by his family for their business, because of his loss making
business blunders and repeated incompetence, his list of achievements
including only failures and money losing ventures or trades, Hari heads
for the Caribbean to sort out his love life and make his first dollar on
his own. His plane lands in the British Virgin Islands and he gets a
job as waiter in a terrace of Tortola. After an unfortunate tip to a
tourist on a penny stock which fails, Hari is fired from his job, and
becomes jobless again.
Sheik Hari is a sociable guy, who trusts
himself when someone else tells him he is rich. He is rich, but someone
else always ends up managing his money, either his family or his
retainer Hakeem, a man who resents all the fortune around him, and seeks
a chunk of all the money thrown away by Hari's disastrous forays into
business, trade, or investing.
After an email sent by error by
Hari results in the landing of a consortium of journalists investigating
the Sheik and the holdings of his company, Clarity helps Hari sort out
some of the problems arising out of the unwanted notoriety. The mess
created by Hari includes a scandal called Scrub Leaks, involving the
Sheik's family assets and other powerful members of the elite, and a
money laundering charge by the BVI financial services commission, which
leads Hari's girlfriend to leave him. As a result of the mess, Hari, and
Clarity, are arrested and are led to jail in Tortola.
Hari in jail, awaiting a trial which the authorities want as example of
their compliance with laundering legislation, Clarity will have to find
an ingenious way to leave jail and the island, to elude the charges
against them by bringing to the police commissioner those who tampered
with the Sheik's account in Tortola. Lacking any local allies, the only
way for Clarity out of Hari's mess, is to strike a deal exchanging
favors with Plum, who is seeking a valuable list of connections owned by
the Sheik, in order to reach the sorority headed by an older woman,
Lady Mulham, which brings to their members an explanation of
'completion', in particular the completion of its symbol, the incomplete
