Best Line of the Day

Even when they're angry, Egyptians still have a sense of humor. Somewhere on the Internet today (I hope that narrows it down) I noticed that one of the chants being chanted was Mubarak, Mubarak, al-Saudiyya intizarak. "Mubarak, Mubarak, Saudi Arabia is waiting for you."

Ben Ali and family, of course, fled to Saudi Arabia.

That's not even the best one. I liked بن على بيناديك . . . فندق جدة مستانيك!‬ better.

Ben Ali is calling, a hotel in Jedda is waiting for you.
