Shawarmanji’s Halloween Campaign

That’s a hilarious campaign and I like the fact that CBJ and Crepaway replied positively. Nevertheless, that’s not enough and one of them should come with a really smart reply.

What Really Happened With Sukleen’s Sleiman?

We are all glad that Sleiman is better now but I believe this report was needed to clarify what really happened and Sukleen should issue a clear statement to explain who really assaulted Sleiman and whether he was arrested or not.
PS: Last two seconds of the report should have been omitted.

Ayia Napa’s Senior Frog’s Coming To Beirut

I am sure every Lebanese who traveled to Ayia Napa has been to Senior Frog’s. It’s the best place to kick off the party there as it’s always crowded and there’s always live entertainment.

Regular entrance tickets are at 45$ and 55$ (65$ at the door) and VIP tickets are at 100$.

Update: Walid Joumblatt Is Tweeting Himself

NDU Should Not Have Canceled the Elections, but Learn from AUB

Yes, that’s in NDU, not a zoo somewhere where a piece of meat was thrown into a holding area with dozens of carnivorous animals. The difference here is that this is a university campus, not a zoo, and the animals are actually loyalists of Geagea and Aoun, two of the warlords Lebanon was never really able to get rid of. It’s so embarrassing that the supposedly “educated youth”, still have so many testosterone-crazed baboons that often spend over a decade in universities to be the “representatives” of their political macho men, ruining any chance of meaningful political reform at an early stage in hopes they’ll graduate knowing how to run a proper political campaign and elections, far from the norm their leaders outside campus set.

The 2018 World Cup will take place in Russia and the logo is supposed to represent Russia’s heart & soul. I think it looks great specially when compared to the previous two World Cups logos. Now let’s wait and see what Qatar comes up with in few years time, assuming FIFA will allow them to still host the World Cup.

I am very glad to hear Sleiman is in good health and I hope they arrest the person who assaulted him soon. In case you missed the original story, Sleiman is a Sukleen worker who got assaulted and humiliated in Dekwaneh two days and it didn’t take long before the story went viral.
