Welcome to Jebla. People are happy here.
Thank you Mr. Sakalaki.
Our country is unique. If you thought our attempt at breaking into the seven wonders of nature with Jeita Grotto was a bust, think again because Lebanon has established an eighth wonder. And get this – it’s both natural and the work of men.
How’s that? Well, you don’t need me to explain the birds and the bees for you (I hope) but we can all agree that it is a natural process. And what those birds and bees eventually lead to is the work of men and women obviously.
What’s Lebanon’s eighth wonder? The correct question is not what but who. Behold, ladies and gentlemen, Nabih Berri:
“How do we not love him and the eighth wonder of the world is his laugh,” the poster’s caption said.
In all his twenty years as speaker of parliament, I have never seen Nabih Berri smile. But I’ll take their word for it.
The Pyramids of Egypt are beyond jealous. Just saying.
Thank you Mr. Sakalaki for the picture.
Update: Another picture courtesy of my friend Mr. Seif. Berri’s supporters are the gift that keeps giving – with feisty slogans to boot.
The ministry of internal affairs has started its preparatory campaign for the 2013 elections by telling people to check their name on the voters lists before March 10th, which I told you to do a few days ago (link).
As part of its attempt at getting the Lebanese voter to feel more involved, especially that it pertains to bureaucratic stuff most people don’t want to feel concerned with, they have launched the following funny ad, which plays on the different types of Lebanese people who might be “violated” by errors on the lists:
The last 2 seconds of the ad are beyond hilarious, which is probably what might get some people to go to this website (link) and check if their name is correctly listed.
And if you thought the Roum Catholic part is far-fetched, just check out this screenshot (link) from the lists of my hometown.
PS: They are brothers.
Lebanese comedian Mario Bassil is a participant on LBC’s Celebrity Duets, a show that serves as a fundraiser for a celebrity’s charity of choice while they “sing” for votes.
Mario Bassil is still in the competition and his performance yesterday was his own version of Gangnam Style which he called “Yalla Mario Style.”
I think it’s hilarious.
