زي شرابة الخرج لا تعدله و لا تميله
Zayy shorrabet el khorg, la te’delu wala temayyelu
Translation: Like the tassel of the camel bag, it neither straightens it nor tilts it.
Meaning: Don't let the strange wording confuse you; this proverb simply means that someone is useless, spineless, or irrelevant. Shorrabet el khorg, or the tassels on the bag used when riding a camel, serve little purpose. Politicians fear the first part of this proverb, which is still in use. Call someone a shorrabet khorg and they’ll have to deny the charges immediately.
