Revolutionary Rhetoric Enters Young People's Flirting Jargon

Al-Arabiya English has an amusing post about how the rhetoric of the revolution in Egypt has entered the banter of the young, especially when flirting, including "The People demand your phone number," and "The People demand a date with you," It's perfectly in keeping with the Egyptian sense of humor, but it's also something I hadn't seen mentioned before.
