Here’s the Topless Craigslist Pic of Mubarak You Wanted

Inevitable.Did you have any doubt that this existed? Los Angeles cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz posted it to Twitter yesterday. But the Internet is so slow in Egypt this week, it took until just now for it to finally download on Hosni Mubarak’s iPhone. And then he resigned and Egypt was free of tyranny, just like that! So it really was a TwitPic Revolution. And don’t miss Mubarak’s 30-second “I Give Up!” statement, which he didn’t even bother to deliver himself. That’s one second per year of Mubarak rule! [Lalo Alcaraz]

    All the good revolution colors are already taken. What the hell are the poor Egyptians gonna call it? The Puce Revolution? Mauve? Maybe Indian Red?

    Just saw a dude holding a sign behind a reporter:

    "The Revolution Was Televised. Thank you Al Jazeera!"

    Always knew Gil Scott Heron was a prophet.

    They're starting with the man in the mirror — they're asking him to change his ways.

    And no message could have been any clearer: If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself, and then make a change!

    He's ready to retire in Gaza in his Mediterranean beach house. I'm sure the locals will love to have him.

    Misunderstood man seeking refuge in sympathetic woman's arms — m4w (Cairo)

    Charming man with complicated work history is looking to hook up with a sympathetic woman. Owning a small villa in a deposed dictator-friendly country is a plus. No fatties.

    Ongoing Party! Victory of the people, for once. When is the election? Is King Tut running for office?

      Lalo Alcaraz did one of my favorite comic strips ever, during the 2000 Philadelphia GOP convention. Let's see if I can find it. Nope, it is not on the Internet.

        You might be able to reach him care of the paper or at least leave a message asking him to post it someplace?

    Hey, he has 80 billion dollars he stole from his countrymen. He has people to make his announcements for him.

      You know, this may make him "The Most Interesting Man Alive." But, I'm still going with "Doctor Evil."

    Good morning, Egyptian people, it's Hosni Mubarak. I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my presidency. So give it some thought and certainly pray about this and come to understand why you did what you did. OK, have a good day.

    For the love of god, who asked for this? Certainly not any of us.
