They're corrupt four times in the morning, two times in the afternoon, and three times in the evening.

Fair enough, but that shouldn't make it news.  Our news would report that we don't trust them - hell, if it got more clicks, views, or share they'd happily whore out their hot reporters (and the ugly ones, too).

The thing that I took away from the charts in that article was how successfully the U.S. corporations and its sock-puppet govt. have been in pulling the wool over the eyes of the average citizen. The percentage of people who think that businesses and the govt. are corrupt should be 100%, because they are.

Barack Obama was so proud of his Arab Spring - how he had personally kicked off a round of protests and leadership changes in the Middle East. You know, like installing the Muslim Brotherhood and their benevolent democratic leaders, like Morsi.

He's still trumpeting those great successes to the American people I'm sure = telling us all how much good and change he's personally done over there. Like the great leader we know him to be.

Its a good thing this article isn't about a problem in Japan.

Fark has a powerful modmin that quickly squashes any jokes about them.

Thank god its ok to make fun of blacks, mexicans, indians, and of course, Egyptians.

/people from Egypt suck. They smell really bad. And they don't talk like white people.

No Time To Explain: that's some mighty fine reporting there Lou

Hey, just Google, man.  I looked through a list of the top 100 names for boys and boy, is Egypt farked up. Some of them sound like screen names.

Who names their son "bigcanary"? They must have compiled this list from Facebook or something? Is there an Egyptian Facebook? Are all of the photos in profile with the hands in weird 2-d positions?

But I digres.

I think your best bet would be Mahmoud:

That's some mighty fine reporting there, Mahmoud.

There must also be an Egyptian equivalent of Apu, possibly Abou.

That's some mighty fine reporting there, Abou (Abu? Aboud?)

I would go with one of those.

Seriously, who names their child "Sharky" or "Boody". Your friends will never find you if you are named Boody.

Egyptian Gentleman:  I am looking for Boody. Have you seen Boody? Have we any Boody in the house?
 
2013-07-10 11:07:05 PM  
You can tell Egypian gentlemen. They never look you in the face.

Either Norway and Finland have a real nice system going on or they just don't give a shiat. We all know what the 0 - 20 percent in the middle east means.

Theory Of Null: Either Norway and Finland have a real nice system going on or they just don't give a shiat. We all know what the 0 - 20 percent in the middle east means.


Apart from the fact that Norway and Finland didn't score the highest among the nordic countries, then yeah.
