Poking fun

Posted on May 25, 2006


I was just perusing Faisal’s blog, when I saw that he had a link to this article from the Daily Star Egypt, about the American University in Cairo’s own solidarity campaign (good for them by the way). It features numerous quotes from one Bassem Khalifa, described as “an activist in his own right”.

Isn’t it hilarious when people start taking your friends seriously and quoting them in newspapers? Particularly a friend who, once upon a time, routinely ran down the steep platform stairs and splatted himself into the wall of the university library all spread-eagled, and then peeled himself off one limb at a time, blowing into his thumb to “inflate” his cartoonishly flattened extremities.

Seriously dude, good work.
