Assad the Builder: Ready, Steady, Bomb!
The Syrian Prime Minister, visiting Iran amidst his country's ongoing civil war, talked about the Syrian government's imminent "big victory" and its plans for commencing the reconstruction process.

Syria: Democracy In The Time Of Mortar Shelling
He promised to do so and he has indeed done so. Presidential elections are under way today under the auspices of Assad's regime in the mortar-blitzed country of the Levant, renown for its deconstructivism-inspired urban planning. Lest the skeptics among you infer that ...CONTINUE READING >>
Syrian Democracy: Election Blitz
Democracy is widely acclaimed as the optimum system of governance, a way of life in a manner of speaking, and as such it is essential that it is constantly nurtured, emboldened and advocated for, not only during periods of smooth national sailing, but even when facing the most...CONTINUE READING >>
Assad: At the Top of His (Board) Game
What with the space program coming along and elections planned for the near future, Assad believes this year is as good a time to end his unanimously successful program of a custom-version of the famous board game Risk. The unanimously acclaimed game, initiated nationally ...CONTINUE READING >>
Assad: Pulling the World's Collective Leg
Times and times again savvy Assad has demonstrated his ingenuity in slapstick humor and/or political farce and yet each time he seems to push himself to an even higher (or lower pending on one's perspective) level of artistry. Case in point: The new Syrian Space Agency announcement. At some point it looked that Kim Jong-un was gaining on him for the title of Master Uber-Supremium Sovereign (MUSS), what with his new ski-resort where no citizen can afford the half-day ski pass and his penchant for executing close relatives, but Assad is way in the lead with this one.
Assad: Who Said he didn't have a Sense of Humor?
In a valiant effort to protect his bombed-out citizens that are trying to plan their next holiday destination, and under the influence of a uncanny campaign of the Greek Tourism Ministry, Assad is poopooing Turkey as unsafe. Specifically he has drawn attention to the mediocre quality of the refreshments, the inferior taste of baklava and the unreliable 4G mobile network.
Assad: "And I Am Telling You"
In a statement that can onky be interpreted as a serious case of cognitive bias or a long-running prank, Assad declares Syria "the last stronghold of secularism and stability in the region and coexistence". Which is like saying that Iran is the land of the Disco Queens, Saudi Arabia famous for its beer & pork-chop festival and North Korea is the land of the Unicorns. Oh wait, North Korea IS the land of the Unicorns...
Assad The Benevolent
In the spirit of "social tolerance, national unity and the requirements of co-existence" Syrian death-row inmates are getting a sweet amnesty deal of life in hard-labor camps where they will get to exercise (while repenting) on a daily basis and be privileged to contribute (selflessly) towards their country's GDP. The deal applies only to murderers (mass, serial or other), rapists and traitors.

Kim & Bashir: A Match Made in Comics Heaven
In a comicbook world of mega-villains, the moon-faced, block-of-cheese lookalike supreme leader of the evil emprire X would extend his support for the autistic-weasel-looking supreme leader of evil empire Y currently practising his multitasking skills by bludgeoning his people while doing online shopping. Oh, wait, this actually happened...
