A small collection of jokes in Egypt celebrating February 14 (I find the last one the most humorous):
- Our romantic date was spent protesting
- I love you as much as the Muslim Brotherhood loves parliament
- I would catch a tear gas canister for you
- He finally said the three words I have been waiting for: Yusqut Hukm al-‘Askar (Down with Military Rule)
Collected from Paul Attallah, who sends out a daily collection of links to Egypt news articles. Contact me if you would like to be added to his list. Some of his digital artwork can be found here.
While we’re on the subject, here is my favorite pre-revolution Mubarak joke:
During an international summit between George Bush, Vladimir Putin, and Hosni Mubarak, God appeared and announced the end of the world in two days. He instructed the leaders to return to their countries and warn the people.
George Bush announced, ‘I have met God and have good news and bad news. The good news is our religion is true. The bad news is the world will end in two days. Prepare to meet your maker.’
Vladimir Putin announced, ‘I have met God and have bad news. First, our atheism is false. Second, the world will end in two days. Everyone go get drunk.’
Hosni Mubarak announced, ‘I have met God and have good news. First, our religion is true. Second, I will be your president until the end of time. Everything is fine.’
