Egypt’s toppled president Hosni Mubarak is “clinically depressed” as he remains in a Sharm el Sheikh hospital, a senior Egyptian official told FOX News Tuesday.

Doctors said the ousted leader spends all day in bed and is eating very little with his wife Suzanne by his side, the official added.

Look what you did, Obama’s Muslin Brotherhood! Taking away Hosni’s country from the poor man is eating away his soul and will to live. Hurry up and give him back his dictatorship. If this goes on any longer, he might pick up a guitar. [NYP]

    He hasn't regressed to listening to Jewel music and cutting himself just yet. There is still hope for him to pull out of this.

    "Egypt’s toppled president Hosni Mubarak is “clinically depressed” as he remains in a Sharm el Sheikh hospital, a senior Egyptian official told FOX News Tuesday."
    He must be watching too much Fox News reporting on him watching Fox News, that would make anyone depressed.

      I am at home sick, and you just made me cough my guts out laughing!

  • SorosBot

    As someone who has suffered from clinical depression, I'll give the old dictator some advice: suicide is painless, it brings on many changes…

  • hagajim

    Oh shoot…I thought you said Hosni was all Elmo now…never mind.

  • freakishlywrong

    He probably found out they froze his assets.

  • $exy$murf

    Sounds like someone needs a visit from the hug monster.

  • PabaBritannica

    Bullshit, he might be listening to The Cure's "Killing an Arab", but I'm pretty sure he's smiling about that song on the inside.

  • weejee

    If he starts listening to SHYNE, the kosher gangsta rapper, then start worrying.

    If he calls in a napalm strike on the hospital would that be self emo-lation?

    Depression clinic
    And the nation don't know what the nation is getting
    The créme de la créme of the Mid East in a
    clinic with everything but Nurse Ratchet

    Time flies doesn't seem a minute
    Since the Exile bank has no gold bars in it
    All change don't you know that when you
    Rule at this level there's no ordinary venue

    It's Elba or Ceti Alpha 5 or Dallas or this place

    One night in Exile and the worlds your toilet
    Gold bars are useless and freedom ain't free
    You'll find a loser in every Swiss bank
    And if you're lucky then the hooker's a she
    I can feel a joke being made 'bout me

    One day is very like another
    When you head's down over your losses brother

    Somewhere, Morrissey is smiling.

      Did I tell you that I cried?

    • widestanceroman

      Hosni is looking forward to spending warm summer days writing frightening verse to a buck-tooth girl in Luxembourg.

    • not that Dewey

      He's seen this happen in other people's lives; now it's happening in his.

    • BarryOPotter

      Well, under the circumstances, what he said was said, but then all the rejection he's had to pretend to happy could only be idiocy. ♪Blah di da da di da da…

      Screaming infidels, indeed.

    Glenn Beck keep warning us of the coming Anarchist/Unionist/Islamist Caliphate. But does he ever warn us of the greater threat: Emo Nation?

  • widestanceroman

    Shux. I waited an entire Arab Spring to use that!

  • edgydrifter

    What? Realizing that you're broke and powerless and that the future holds no hope for you is depressing? Weird!
    Welcome to the wonderful life of your former subjects, Hos.

    • Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Good God, how that brings back my college days. He probably isn't having sex either.

  • Gopherit

    Depressed? At least he seems to have soshalizt medical care. He's one up on the rest of us.

    • weejee

      Are the Egyptians learning how to play the Soviet mental hospital card?

  • MissTaken

    I know it's serious

  • Gopherit

    Yeah, I mean, compared to being in a coma, being clinically depressed is positively perky. He'll be listening to Taylor Swift soon.

    • horsedreamer_1

      I can already see the tear-drops on his guitar*.

      *Which is an Arabian instrument.

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    See what happens when you quit to spend more time with the family.

    • Lionel[redacted]Esq

      So that is why David Vitter didn't step down?

    This will be dramatized as The Nitemare Before Eid al-Fitr.

  • Sharkey

    Maybe he could try, I dunno, turning on the TV?

    What? Oh, wait.

  • Guppy06

    And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for those meddling kids!

    • BarryOPotter

      Ruh roh!

  • ttommyunger

    Time to die, Hosni.

  • natoslug

    So now it's you, me, SorosBot and my 11 year old son (he wanted to know the words after learning to play it in band class on his sax. He's been wandering around the house for ~ 3 weeks now, singing it at his sister).

  • not that Dewey

    There were times when I could have strangled him.

  • MinAgain

    I'd call him a whiny, pathetic horse's ass, but that would be an insult to horses everywhere.

    Hey, g*ddamit, (keep reading and the ** will make sense, or, ,fuck it, it's Holy Week) these threads keep filling up so fast I can't get in an OT comment that's really important.

    Just had my hair done at the local salon I patronize (that is in a building and not some loser's beauty shop cum kitchen, thank you very much) and the hot talk in town is about this book I'm about to review that I haven't read. OT because Ken doesn't have a Reader's Club section for us to post to. It's called Heaven is Real or some shit like that, and by this guy who went to Wesleyan College in Bartlesville (it's a Free Methodist college. btw–Free Methodists aren't) about his kid who was a little boy and saw heaven and Jesus several times (I can't remember exactly how that happened because the wax was being yanked off my eyebrows and I was in pain when that got explained) and I have some great news!!!!

    Jesus is blond, blue eyed and his robe is covered in rainbows. Yay! Jesus is gay white guy!!!

    PS A third of the people having their hair done were skeptical. (There were three people in the salon at the time). The ** was because it might be real and wtf–I don't want to risk hell for swearing.

    • HempDogbane

      re: "wax being yanked off". What does Brazilian Jesus look like?

  • DustBowlBlues

    Another win.

  • Tommmcattt

    Ok, I'm old. I have no idea what an Emo is or why it is particularly worthy of scorn. There's porn of it, I know, but I'm too lazy too look it up.

    So basically, this post was a wash for me. Maybe Ken will make a movie or bring back dildobot to explain it. Or not, that's okay too.

    Happy 420, everyone.

  • lochnessmonster

    Too bad Gadaffi didn't get depressed rather than go off all manic like he has.

  • carlgt1

    uhhh, "Killing an Arab" by The Cure, FTW?

  • BZ1

    FauxNews is covering this? They're going on and on, this and that, still pretending to be a news outlet…

  • TheMeatmaker

    In other news, Qaddafi has delusions of grandeur, and every other world leader suffers from narcissistic personality disorder. (Except Carter. He just hallucinated giant bunnies.)

  • fuflans

    do you think he'll pull thru?

    you people rock.

  • gurukalehuru

    How is it we've got more detailed info on the mental and emotional state of Hoser Mubarak than we do on American Hero Bradley Manning?
