Your ‘Omar Suleiman Joke of the Day

From The Arabist, via Twitter, your ‘Omar Suleiman joke of the day.
Much as I hate to explain a good joke and perhaps ruin it, for those who came in late, the beating death of Khaled Said by police in Alexandria in 2010 became a major provocation for the protests that led to the revolution; then the Facebook  page "We are all Khaled Said" (originally started by Wael Ghonim) became a major rallying point. As a revolutionary slogan, "We are all Khaled Said" became famous.
