I’m sure you’ve all heard about what’s going on in Egypt. But just in case you’ve been living under a rock or spending an inordinate amount of time debating on which app to download to your new iPad, let me fill you in.
The Egyptian people are revolting. No, I don’t mean the Egyptian people are revolting, as in disgusting. I mean the Egyptian people have risen up against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. There have been mass protests, fights between supporters and opponents that left about 10 dead and 800 wounded, and an explosion that may or may not be related to the crisis, but which was so powerful, it rocked an apartment building in Finland.
But how is all of this related to cheese? Well, it would appear that in the days just prior to the initial protest, not one, but TWO Egyptians visited WWFC! It would appear there were two particular articles of interest. The first visit was to co-blogger Mike’s cheeseburger post. I’m sure the total awesomeness of this succulent burger review had our first Egyptian visitor questioning why there were no such burger opportunities in Cairo. And of course, he talked about it with his BFF. The seeds of discord were sown.
The second was to my White Elephant post. I can only imagine the pain and suffering experienced by this second Egyptian visitor when he or she realized that we share such amazing gifts with each other with no fear of government reprisals. I can almost hear the whispered conversations as they spread the word that WWFC is the hope for the future and that Nicky and Mike should rule their little corner of the world.
I know what you’re thinking. This is hardly proof that the Egyptian people want WWFC to rule. Well, how about the fact that the Egyptian people started protesting ON MY BIRTHDAY!! See, I told you. I may just have to change my name to Cleopatra. Since I already have name issues, this should hardly pose a problem.
But, really, why stop at Egypt? You may have noticed our subtle references to world domination. And maybe you’ve noticed our not-so-subtle references to world domination. Just think about it. A world dominated by, um, I mean united by cheese. Sigh. Cue Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World“.
So, in the interest of facilitating peace, we here at WWFC will humbly accept the role of rulers of the world. We will, of course, need your help in spreading the word. And because we abhor violence, we would like to encourage our Egyptian readers, and all our other readers, to use non-violent means such as Tweeting, Stumbling, Digging or sharing the news on Facebook.
And could you please hurry? We’re going to need you all to build us a palace.
