Nicely done

This made me choke on my library snacks in a way most inappropriate on a day when we’re collectively handing over the reins of power to the Bullingdon Club. How not to write about Egypt:

‘“At this point, a quote is long overdue,” chuckled Mohamed Father of Eight, who will usually be employed in something sufficiently blue collar-y as to give what he says that all-important authenticity. Make sure however that he is mellow and an exponent of the famous Egyptian sense of humour – despite the fact that he is being fucked over sideways by life.’

I love the ‘authentic Egyptians’ picture as well. Solid gold. As is the final line: ‘in the eternal city, when Egyptians have colds, they sneeze.’
