Imadge-ine that!/Saken fe 7ayy el Sayyeda we 7abeeby saken fe Wiltshire

Umm Nakad and Amnesiac are in Sayyeda Zeinab. They have just been to the mosque, where Umm Nakad prayed, and Amnesiac watched a cat rolling around on the carpets. They are now strolling through Sayyeda’s animated streets, deep in conversation.

They pass a group of lads holding congress on a car bonnet:

YOUNG WIT: Shereen* we Madonna ya lahwy, meshyeen fel share3! [Blimey, it's Shereen and Madonna walking down the street!]

*Shereen is a popular young singer, a contemporary of Tamer ‘being a guest of State institutions wont stop me making music’ Unibrow Hosny. Shereen’s head is too big for her body, but she sings good songs and has an impressive collection of weaves. Umm Nakad bears a passing resemblance to Shereen, to the extent that once, when she went to represent two handcuffed suspects being held in a police station, they both burst into a rendition of ‘ah ya layl’ upon seeing her.

I look nothing like Madonna. Let it be known.

    …a contemporary of Tamer ‘being a guest of State institutions wont stop me making music..for the military’s official 6th of October celebrations whose service he’d just escaped before state institution time’ Unibrow Hosny. Beat that!

    Shereen reminds me of Christina Aguilera …a set of vocal cords with arms and legs………..Strike a Pose Amnesiac

  3. Amnesiac says:

    Senef: LOL no way, ah the beautiful irony.

    Zero: Yes, I know exactly what you mean. She’s tiny with a massive roar. Like a sub-woofer.

    My favorite come-on is some guy trying to stop a girl who was passing by from…well, passing by. He said to her: Mato2afy shwaya…tab bil ra7a tayib…tab kol dossa bi bossa..!

    Just out of animated curiosity, Was he Oltoming (for lack of an english equivalent) when he uttered….

    “Shereen* we Madonna ya lahwy, meshyeen fel share3″ ?

    i hate shereen. she is nasal and vulgar. but umm nakad does look a bit like her fe3lan. ya benty, madonna is the only white woman still current in egyptian popular conciousness.

  7. Amnesiac says:

    Zero: Do you mean, was he addressing us? Yes he was, sir.

    Forsooth: She is most certainly not nasal and as for the vulgar thing no comment.

    Funnily enough, I had realised that the Madonna thing was to do with a lack of white female alternatives to source for the quip rather than e.g. the similarity of our bank balances.

  8. ZeRoCoOl says:

    re referring to the post Rhino Rhinoplasty, As
    Timber and tenor of her voice have changed. Which exactly why Babs never had it done as to retain her pristine voice.

    Amnesiac: i think you misunderstood me.

  9. Forsoothsayer says:

    nasal NEIK. i can’t even listen to her…it makes my brain twang. goos songs though. yeah i know you don’t believe in vulgarity as an existing concept :)
