Manipulating our education system

Unbelievable how low some Egyptians can get. Unbelievable. As if the hypocricy through the signs are not enough. And we wonder what's happening to the new generations.

Got this through email (so it could be made up). The Arts final exam in AlArish high school has questions requiring students to draw scenes of Mubarak's achievements and design logos for him!



On a lighter note (or is it a heavier note, I don't know!), go read 'Arfan's latest post. This is basically how most Egyptians think. Maybe we should have that united republic again with Syria afterall! I think we'd get along very well with the Syrians. Personally, I would get along very well with their food (far better than Egyptian food), and their women.

And I rememeber a question in the tarbya watanya.. It was mention the accomplishments of Mubarak :S

The funny thing was that one of the accomplishments was exporting potatos!

Don't worry yourself too much...it's fake. The printing doesn't conform to the creases in the page. It's definitely fake, and a cheap one too.

I recieved it too and I was really astonished, I can't determine if it is correct one or not though.

Well, Moon's example about Mubarak's accomplishments in the Civics course in school is as bad as this alleged Arts exam. What has Civics got to do with Mubarak's accomplishments and potato export! Bateekh and kossa maybe, but potato.. Europe doesn't want our potatos anymore aslan!

Wow, this reminds me of times long ago when the main poem writing theme was our beloved parents, the Ceausescu family! There were also songs, dances for them and of course their picture in every classroom!

BTW, what does this "Bateekh and kossa " mean?

Mohamed said...

Kayla, "kossa" is zucchini, for some reason we use this word to mean nepotism, and "bateekh" is watermelon, and for another reason we use this word to indicate a dumb mess.

Alina said...

Thank you, Mohamed!

haal said...

ya wad ya zucchini enta ya beta3 el bateekh. :)

So, little Kayla, obviously you didnt get what I said earlier about Fromcairo. You will be a major reason for our divorce.
FromCairo, watch it or you will sleep on the coach.

Mohamed said...

Haal, don't scare sweet Kayla off, will you. She's just interested in our vegetables, ok? coach potato!

Alina said...

Guys, you are really funny! Other than that, my mom is a legal advisor, so she knows a lot of hot shot lawyers. I do take a small percentage for my intermidiary bussines, say 5%, and as my mom knows lots and lots of lawyers, I'll find good representatives for both of you! So, who wants a divorce?

haal said...

Aha... didnt you just say what is taken by force dies, Kayla. Well, enjoy FromCairo you broken window.

Well, he is all yours. I will file for a divorce. Thanks for your services. I think you will need it when you discover Fromcairo's real face. You Coach Potato, you!

Mohamed said...

See what I meant here.

Alina said...

Actually, Haal, you got me all wrong! Mr. FromCairo is nothing without you! Told you I was interested in a threesome! But maybe, just maybe, this devide and conquer technique will eventually pay off!

Mr. FromCairo, ok, women are crazy and hard to understand. If this is true, then plese exlpain the male attitude and actions described by my post "What to make at this". If you don't reach the conclusion men are idiots after that post, I will make you my hero!
