Beards are Sacred


Has anybody noticed that with each reshuffle of the cabinet in Stravaraland at least one minister with a mustache is given his walking papers. Cynics among you may think that someone at the presidential castle is trying to play down the fact that we’re the first Middle Eastern country to join the EU.

I checked with official photographs and even called the palace. I must have dialed the wrong number and got through to a bakery that was recently fined for selling tashinopittes containing ball bearings. Needless to say, the baker was furious. Regarding the fine, that is.

At any rate, the whole moustache thing can probably be attributed to some benign form of narcissism. You know, like not wanting to be seen wearing the same dress as someone else at a cocktail party.

Actually, you can turn it around, having a moustache on your CV makes you eligible for the stravaraland cabinet. A cross between the mujaheddin and the european. Explains why there are no women on the cabinet too...

Απόδημε I believe you are away from Cyprus for too long. In the Parliament now there is the foretype of femininity: Ms Roulla Mavronikola!

Well, cabinet is different from parliament. In the former you are appointed, in the latter you are elected. The great leader I think has only appointed one woman until now (in all posts not just the cabinet) and she was dangerously inadequate for the post. She had to be almost imprisoned to get the message that she should resign. But maybe that is why the great leader does not trust females any more...

Apparently you have deserted the sphere of tipsiness, entering the totally pie (πιττα) phase.

This is true, but only apparent when viewing another comment.

I have metaniosi-ed my actions and have given up alcohol forever as it is evil.

Ahhh, fresh mountain air...
