Eshebshan Komedya

I don’t read newspapers. I never check the local news. I stopped doing that since the age of 20 when I realized that it’s the same news except that they keep shuffling the related pictures. They post the same articles about Toshka, Jimmy, and Manuel Jose. They throw in about 20 pages for Vodafone, Mobinil, and Etisalat, four pages for obituaries, and two pages about Al Ahly.

I’m a bad reader. I always miss what’s important… but in that case I don’t really feel guilty about anything at all.

Today I grabbed the Akhbar Al Youm paper off the couch to read the front page and… voila. Right there standing out was the new Caricature by Amr “Zeft” Fahmy. I’ll post it down here for your attention.

Then I turned the page to see another caricature by the same Zeft about some horny girl who lost her bathing suit in the middle of the sea and she’s calling out for people. Apparently, they throw in a daily strip starring that girl, Toto. She’s a young horny girl whose husband can’t get it up apparently.

Yes… we read about shit like all the time in foreign teen magazines and they include that kind of comedy in all of their films… but when it comes to the country’s official newspaper… don’t you think it’s just TOO FUCKING MUCH??!!

Oh well… I emailed them a complaint. I’ll just throw it in for the record. (My Arabic sucks. Don’t judge me.)

عزيزتي أخبار اليوم،

صدمت اليوم عندما رأيت الكاريكاتير المنشور على الصفحة الأولى من الجريده. بالأصحّ عندما قرأت كلمة "مزز". سابقا كنت أعتقد أن المشكلة تكمن من الشارع المصري و تدهور مستوى اللغه… ثم تغيّر مفهومي عندما أدركت أن المشكله تكمن في مضمون وساءل الترفيه حيث تحتوي الأفلام المصريه على قدر وفير من اللغة السوقية و الايحاءات الشكليه و النصّية و المناظر و الحوارات الجنسيّة لدرجة تثير عندي الشك في كيان الرقابة على وسائل الاعلام.

أمّا عندما أجد جريدة مثل أخبار اليوم راعية لكلمة "مزز" و على ظهر الصفحة كاريكاتير جنسي مبتزل و فقير المضمون و المعنى لنفس الرسّام للفتاة توتو التي ترمز للكيان الجنسي في المجتمع، فان ذلك يدفعني للتفكير أكثر من مرّة قبل شراء جريدتكم الرسمية.

أشك أن صحائف أوروبا و أمريكا الرسمية تنشر اللغات الدارجة في شوارعها أو تنشر نكات يحتوي مضمونها على ستار جنسي. لديهم مجلات متخصصة لتلك المواضيع.

أثق في رد فعلكم على تصحيح الحال على أمل أن ينهض المجتمع المصري المسكين ثقافيا بدلا من الدعوى الى الانحلال.

و السلام عليكم و رحمة الله….

What the hell is wrong with these people, I wonder?
