The Onion of the Middle East

Finally! A few clever guys over in Egypt (or hiding out somewhere in a no-extradition country) have launched a site that rivals the Onion, but with a distinctivly Middle Eastern spin. True, most of the articles are incredibly offensive, but isn't that the point?

Some favorites of taxi drivers polled in Dubai: "USA Tired of World Domination, Leaves Planet", "Egypt's Elite Declare Independence from Egypt", and "Ronaldo Adds New Trophy to Cabinet" (his Emmy for performances on the field).

Pretty funny, alright. And you must be right about these guys being in a no-extradition country, or they probably wouldn't have had a second issue.
