More Fabricated Flood Pictures From Beirut

Posted By :


A number of Lebanese citizens today attempted to tarnish the image of our country by sharing fabricated and fake images of flooded streets and roads. Luckily though, they were unable to drop loads of garbage on the streets like last time because the trash was already collected and burned (instead of being recycled) in order to spice up every Lebanese citizen’s morning traffic experience.

Anyway, I examined some of the pictures being shared and they were clearly fakes for obvious reasons:

1- The street light in the first picture shown above is off even though the shot was taken in broad daylight. It’s clearly a fake as street lights are generally turned on during the day in Lebanon to waste electricity and turned off at night to cause accidents.


2- A gas station, 3 empty chairs and no arguile around them? This picture was obviously not taken in Lebanon.


3- This is clearly a fake because the Lebanese government would never leave a hazardous object on the road like that.


4- There’s a generator in this picture while electricity in Lebanon is 24/7. It’s clearly cut out from an old movie about Lebanon when we barely had electricity.


5- There’s a Sukleen truck showing so this is clearly an old picture.


6- This is a wedding convoy and the flooded roads were part of the wedding theme.

These are the only two genuine pictures that I was able to find.



On another positive note, this guy’s dream may come true soon.


The Truth Behind The 2 Tons Held At The Beirut Airport

Posted By :

tun2 Inspired from a picture circulating online

Just like the pictures and videos garbage-flooded streets were apparently all fabricated, the largest drug bust in the history of Lebanon is also a big lie. The Saudi Prince was not smuggling 2 tons of drugs worth millions of dollars but instead 2 cans of tuna (2 طون) hence the confusion. The fact that Laila Abdel Latif didn’t predict these two incidents confirms these claims.

As far as the drug-filled boxes that were found, some parties are already accusing activists, saying that they placed the boxes of drugs to ignite a civil war and make Mohamad Machnouk look bad on his way back from Florence. Meanwhile, Netanyahu is confident the Palestinians smuggled these drugs through tunnels all the way from Gaza to the Beirut Airport.

Mohamad Machnouk could not be reached to comment on the story. An unknown source claimed that the minister has been spending so much time on Instagram and Snapchat that he exceeded his 3G consumption and had to turn off his smartphone.

A nutrition center in Beirut is making use of the recent events and lack of electricity in Lebanon to promote its business. Being healthy is definitely an advantage when you are running away from tear gas canisters, water cannons and the riot police and not having electricity is a good excuse to take the stairs.

The “Feek Tdayen” banner below is messed up though.

But not as messed up as the new “wet club” in Maameltein lol!

Special Celebrations For Weddings/Funerals/Baptisms/Graduation In Lebanon

Posted By :

wtf Source

Forget the fireworks, the Zaffe and the go go dancers, there’s now a cooler way to celebrate your birthday, a first communion, your wedding, your graduation or even mourn your beloved ones. Several packages are being offered at highly competitive prices and satisfaction is 100% guaranteed (If you manage to get out alive).

Until the packages are finalized, here’s a glimpse of the promotions being offered and the safety measures taken:

– If you just gave birth to a boy and he’s the first boy in the family, two B7 shots will be offered for free. If it’s a girl, a special discount will apply.

– If you’re getting married soon and wish to drive a tank to church, you will have to take tank driving lessons or pay a bribe of $500.

– If you’re having a big funeral and don’t want your guests to get hit by stray bullets, we can arrange to fire towards neighboring towns for an additional fee.

– If the sound of gunshots is not too loud, you can hire our multi-talented “Zouzou ebba” BMW drivers to make more noise.

– If your kid failed to graduate and you had placed your order in advance, you get a 20% discount and your kid gets to fire 10 rounds for free as a consolation prize. Insurance policy will not cover anyone who gets hurt in the process.


Jokes aside, I’m not just writing this to criticize what happened in Zahle during Elias Skaff’s funeral procession, and the fact that armed gunmen were roaming around officials firing in the air, but because some people are actually proud of this heavy firing and believe that it’s the right and “manly” thing to do. We’re lucky no one got hurt during this funeral but we’ve seen how many people were injured or got killed in Beirut due to celebratory gunfire.

What they fail to understand is stray bullets can hit anyone at anytime and kill them, and that their “manly” actions could end up killing innocent people and possibly one of their own. Firing in the air during any occasion is a dangerous habit that needs to be ended once and for all in Zahle and elsewhere for everyone’s sake.

Foreign Players To Replace Lebanese Basketball Players By 2017

leb Lebanese players next year – via SportsCode (By Mohammad Noureddine)

In an attempt to take basketball in Lebanon to the next level, the Lebanese Basketball teams and the Federation have met and agreed on a 3-year plan:

Year 1: Allow 3 foreign players instead of 2 in order to push salaries down and make the league more competitive.

Year 2: Allow 5 foreign players instead of 3 and limit the number of Lebanese players to 4 in each team. During this year:
– Lebanese players will be encouraged to take cheer-leading lessons to entertain the crowds during time outs.
– Water boy and ball boy positions will be assigned to Lebanese players and staff to keep them warmed up in case all foreign players got injured.
– Lebanese players who stay on the bench for more than 5 games will have to pay an entrance fee.
– Lebanese players who wish to play for more than 5 minutes per game will have to pay for their own jersey to support local produce.
– Lebanese players will be allowed to sell peanuts, popcorn and soft drinks from the bench.
– Fans will no longer be allowed to chant slogans in Arabic.

Year 3: Ban all Lebanese players from the league and rename the league from FLB to the RNBAPL (Retired NBA Players League). During this year:
– Lebanese players will be assigned special seats with the fans but will have to pay for their own jerseys and tickets.
– Ball boy will have to carry a Lebanese flag to remind everyone this is a Lebanese league.
– Lebanese players who wish to play for local teams can only apply as foreigners if they have non-Lebanese passports.
– Last but not least, Ghayyath Deebra will have to cover the whole game in English.

On a serious note, the decision that was taken today is the dumbest one in Lebanese Basketball history and it will destroy the game for at least the next 2 or 3 years. This federation and all the teams that agreed on 3 foreign players should be ashamed of themselves.

RIP Lebanese Basketball.

Homeland (TV Series) Got What They Deserved

Street artists were apparently approached to add authenticity to the Homeland TV Series set somewhere in Berlin to make it look like a refugee camp on the Syrian-Lebanese border, but they did more than that and planted subversive messages in Arabic like “Homeland is racist”, “Homeland is not a show” and “Homeland is watermelon” to protest the show’s stereotyped portrayal of the Arab world. The Arabic quotes were not checked by the producers and were visible in the second episode of the fifth season, which aired earlier this week.

Here’s what the artists said in a joint statement:

“For four seasons, and entering its fifth, ‘Homeland’ has maintained the dichotomy of the photogenic, mainly white, mostly American protector versus the evil and backwards Muslim threat,” the artists Heba Amin, Caram Kapp, and Stone wrote in a joint statement published Wednesday.

Three years ago, the Lebanese Government wanted to sue Homeland for misrepresenting Hamra in Beirut and showing armed men roaming in it.
