OK, so we went down to the street, and it was packed, and diverse, and yeah I loved the sound effects and music… but seriously, “national unity government”? Come on. Let us get real, what is this “national unity” government supposed to be about? “You’re thieves but we’re OK with joining hands with you to ‘build’ Lebanon if you give us our share [based on what? sects?]”? …. no thanks. But hey, as long as you can topple this government all the more power to you.
There were some witty slogans, can’t remember all of them unfortunately.
I shall call this revolution… the fooooool revolution (no pun intended). Although I would’ve prefered if this were called the hummus revolution and the other one (the cedar or potato or hummus revolution) the foooooooool revolution, ‘cos you know, nothing can beat hummus. Not even falafel (apparently Israel’s “national snack”). OK OK maybe baba ghannouj (eggplant dip) comes close to beating it, but still, hummus > baba ghannouj. Hummus with pickles… OK… OK… let me go wave my flag.
But one thing is for sure, Siniora is toast. And toast does not go well with hummus. You might disagree but I beg to differ.
