I laughed so hard at Joumblatt’s “Jean-Blat Van Damme” tweet yesterday and at his tweets last week following Russia’s drills in the Mediterranean that took Lebanon by surprise.
Nevertheless, I keep asking myself every time I see these tweets if we should be really laughing at them given the situation we are in and this man’s position or bashing him for taking things so lightly. But then again no one takes anything seriously in this country unfortunately so why should anyone? Two days ago, a municipality caused a 6-hour traffic on the Jounieh highway because they were burning garbage under a bridge and started a fire yet no arrests were made and everyone was too busy with the fake Jdeideh Christmas decoration the next day.
They say laughter is the best medicine yet I’m not sure how much it will help with all this garbage and diseases around us.
