Did you know that aliens are mating with humans? Did you know that there are weird looking kids out there born with horns and stuff? Did it occur to you that a potential solution to the “spinster crisis” (عنوسه) is mating with aliens? Did you know that ex-Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev stated that there are tons of aliens out there?
Of course you didn’t because this is total rubbish and I wasn’t sure whether I should be laughing or not when I saw this report. However, Al Jadeed managed to make things worse by mocking its own report. Needless to say, there’s nothing wrong with making fun of other colleagues over a small mistake or a tongue slip, but to bash a report of your own TV due to its fabricated and non-verified facts is like slapping yourself in the face.
I just wish they had just removed the report and apologized.
Locals swooped on the vulture in the southern Lebanese town of Bint Jbeil – via The Guardian
I don’t have a problem with apprehending birds that have Israeli identification rings on them but to capture them on suspicious of espionage is quite ridiculous. Any headline is better than “Vulture arrested in Lebanon on suspicion of spying” or “Israeli “Spy Eagle” Caught In Lebanon” because such headlines really make us look stupid.
I’m sure Israel has all sorts of spying tools and could be using birds and animals as well (hard to believe tbh), but let’s report this the proper way and make sure we find a spying tool on that poor bird before accusing him of spying lol!
A vulture from an Israeli nature reserve has been captured in Lebanon on suspicion of espionage after flying across the border, Israel’s nature reserve authority has said.
Members of the Israeli public phoned the Israel Nature and Parks Authority to alert it to Facebook reports and pictures of a vulture with an Israeli identification ring and location transmitter captured by residents of the south Lebanese town of Bint Jbeil, a spokeswoman, Tali Tenenbaum, said.
“Reports passed to us show the vulture tied with a rope by local people who write that they suspect Israeli espionage apparently because of the transmitter attached to him,” the authority said. [Source]
Here’s what Colbert had to say about the “Spy Israeli Birds”:
On January 18, 1976, Beirut experienced a major blackout for a total of 20 minutes due to the ongoing fights. A 20 minute blackout was considered a scandal at the time even though the country was at war, and the story was mentioned in most newspapers.
Can you imagine how the Lebanese would react if the current goes out for only 20 minutes these days? They would probably panic at first, then they would hit the streets singing and dancing Dabke and offering Baklawa for a week.
This is the sad reality we are currently living, and I don’t expect the electricity situation to get better anytime soon.
The screenshot shown above is from L’OrientLeJour archives and was recently shared by one of my favorite FB pages “La guerre du Liban au jour le jour“. Check it out as they have an endless number of awesome old footages and articles.
PS: If you want 24/7 electricity, you can always move to Zahle 😀
A friend weirdly emailed me horoscopes yesterday and told me that I should read them. Of course I was about to delete them at first but then I noticed there’s the La Libanaise des Jeux logo on the bottom and they turned out to be hilarious! I posted a couple of them, check out the rest on their page.
I also found and shared a couple of old ads posted right before the horoscopes that are also quite funny!
The song is spot on and right on time before the elections that should take place (hopefully) this year. I hope Lebanese will listen carefully to the lyrics and hold their Zaiims and MPs accountable this year for the disastrous situation we are in right now.
Lebanese are always ready to make jokes no matter what the occasion! Today was a historic day for some and a joke for others. Here are some of the funniest reactions that were shared online in the last few hours.
PS: Here’s the [song] that will top all charts this week. Thank u Michel!
