A character in a very famous Egyptian comedy was a man who thinks that he has the first and the final say in his house. The truth was that his wife was the master of the house and not him. So a common conversation between the husband (who was named Hanafi) and his wife in the movie went as follows:
Hanafi: I decided to do this.
Wife (disagreeing): Hanafi!
Hanafi: No Hanafi, I am the man and my word will not fall on the ground (or get annulled) at all.
Wife shouts: HANAFI!!!
Hanafi: OK, my word will fall this time, but next time, it will never fall on the ground!
Now Condi Rice in the above cartoon is shouting "HANAFI!" and the guy who we cannot see is saying "OK, my word will fall this time, but next time, it will never fall on the ground!"
The caption under the cartoon reads: Amending Article 76 of the constitution after a lot of denials of any constitutional amendments and considering this as void.
Pop Quiz: changing article 76 of the Egyptian constitution will allow multiple candidates to run in the coming presidential elections, so who is playing the character of Hanafi in the above cartoon??
