Here’s the Topless Craigslist Pic of Mubarak You Wanted

by Ken Layne

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]

I bet he smells like mummy meat.

Dear Diary,

Jackpot!

'The Situation' in Egypt.

elviouslyqueer February 11, 2011 at 12:31 pm

For real, for real, for real.

Serolf_Divad February 11, 2011 at 12:30 pm

OK, I just e-mailed this to all my colleagues at work.

How long before I'm fired?

Ken Layne February 11, 2011 at 12:31 pm

Depends how many people are protesting by the coffee maker.

MrsBiggTime February 11, 2011 at 12:38 pm

No creamer – no peace.

user-of-owls February 11, 2011 at 12:41 pm

You've got until tomorrow if your ISP is Egyptian.

nounverb911 February 11, 2011 at 12:31 pm

Is he posing for the new sphinx?

Lascauxcaveman February 11, 2011 at 12:34 pm

Ooooohhh, so that's why he resigned.

Still, pretty good guns for a dude in his 80's.

Pragmatist2 February 11, 2011 at 12:34 pm

Can't fool me with your Pfotoshop. Those are Jack LaLanne's nipples or I am a Mummy.

alfred light February 11, 2011 at 12:53 pm

But Jack LaLanne is a mummy now!

bitchincamaro2 February 11, 2011 at 12:34 pm

Wow. Somebody hacked his BB, as well?! RIM will dearly pay for this.

MrsBiggTime February 11, 2011 at 12:35 pm

I'd hit it. And by "hit it" I mean hit it repeatedly over the head with Glenn Beck's chalkboard.

MoeDeLawn February 11, 2011 at 12:35 pm

I misread this – I thought Egypt was free of tranny. I thought that was sad.

Oblios_Cap February 11, 2011 at 12:36 pm

Now, that's a Dick-tater!

Barrelhse February 11, 2011 at 12:53 pm

"taster"

MinAgain February 11, 2011 at 12:36 pm

I'd hit that. With a stick.

weejee February 11, 2011 at 12:39 pm

He hopes he can keep Angela Merkel's heart a'twitter and keep that bedpan and breakfast deal.

user-of-owls February 11, 2011 at 12:39 pm

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?

LiveToServeYa February 12, 2011 at 12:54 pm

Papyrus Revolution.

Weenus299 February 11, 2011 at 12:39 pm

Dc-ttr, 82, lookin fo' tastee dick-tation.

Kibbicake! Kibbicake!

Come here a minute February 11, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Crap, does this mean we have to settle for a photoshopped craigslist pic of Jon Kyl, too?

Sharkey February 11, 2011 at 12:48 pm

Turns out he was actually born in Chicago.

ifthethunderdontgetya February 11, 2011 at 12:51 pm

I look forward to the Sarah Palin photoshop.

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.

sweetcommunist February 11, 2011 at 2:19 pm

That is a wonderful sign. Here is a funny but poignant article: http://www.theonion.com/articles/yes-sweetie-momm

obfuscator2 February 11, 2011 at 12:55 pm

hosni "moobs" mubarak?

Extemporanus™ February 11, 2011 at 1:00 pm

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!

alfred light February 11, 2011 at 1:01 pm

Do you think he's familiar with Nikki Haley's black bra?

DerrickWildcat February 11, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Whew!

donner_froh February 11, 2011 at 1:03 pm

So that's why Glenn Beck and CPAC were so hot for the guy. Explains a lot.

Oblios_Cap February 11, 2011 at 1:05 pm

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

OneDollarJuana February 11, 2011 at 1:07 pm

They'll love his billion$.

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.

AngryGeometer February 11, 2011 at 2:46 pm

Age 39.

WriteyWriterton February 11, 2011 at 7:13 pm

"… deposed dictator-friendly country is a plus…"

USAUSAUSA!

baconzgood February 11, 2011 at 1:09 pm

BAHHHHH!

Nightmare fuel.

KenLayIsAlive February 11, 2011 at 1:14 pm

Speaking from experience – if you find a woman on CL who looks as good as Hosni Mubarak, consider it a miracle.

sati_demise February 11, 2011 at 1:20 pm

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

mourningnmerica February 11, 2011 at 1:22 pm

Mubarak is a tranny?

Steverino247 February 11, 2011 at 1:22 pm

Lalo's a clever guy. Thanks, Ken, for giving him some attention.

Ken Layne February 11, 2011 at 1:32 pm

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.

Steverino247 February 11, 2011 at 2:53 pm

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

Barrelhse February 11, 2011 at 4:04 pm

This one slays me.

mrblifil February 11, 2011 at 1:43 pm

Thanks for the laffs Hosni. Here's to a future full of pillow-biting until you off yourself you sick sadistic fuck.

simplyblue7 February 11, 2011 at 4:18 pm

Who would want to give up a tyrant with a body like that?

Walkinwiddaking February 11, 2011 at 5:30 pm

Hey, if I was subjugating 80,000,000 people i'd have a hefty set of pecs too.

lochnessmonster February 11, 2011 at 5:35 pm

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

Walkinwiddaking February 11, 2011 at 5:43 pm

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

gullywompr February 11, 2011 at 9:27 pm

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.
