It's Berries (oops Berry) Season!

In light of the continuous absurdities of the Lebanese political scene, some humor won’t hurt. It just occurred to me that June marks the beginning of the “berries” season, and this is why Berry will be our next Speaker.

Many similarities between the several berries and our unique, one-of-a-kind, organically grown Berry.

Straw-Berry: Straws needed to suck-up fortunes of others from a distance.
Cran-Berry: Cran-ky until he gets his way.
Blue-Berry: He will lie to you until you’re blue in the face.
Black-Berry: Oh, that’s a simple one. He always black-mails you.
Rasp-Berry: Definition of a “rasp”: A coarse file with raised, sharp points on its surface.
Goose-Berry: That’s an obvious one. He’s loose as a goose.
Mul-Berry: He will continue to “mull” things over until we are really confused.
Elder-Berry: Isn’t it getting elderly to have stayed so long as the Speaker?

So, here we have it. Our own Lebanese Berry patch.

The only problem is that in warm climates, apparently berries can grow all season long.

Thinkingman,
I enjoyed reading your analogies between Mr. Berry and the berries.
Imagine 3 people were killed while celebrating Berry's re-appointment!!
I don't think the whole story is Berry's fault; on the contrary it is his wise game. I would principally blame Saad Hariri and Walid Jumblatt because they refused the change, they opted for the dark past again, everything was between their hands and they did nothing. Yes, those two are not trustworthy (we have always known Jumblatt like this) but it is sad to see the virus infecting the young Saadeddine that early! Dommage....

LOL!
What we can be certain of is that he definitely is not related to luscious Halle-Berry. She's the ultimate babe: gorgeous, sexy, and every man's dream, and he is....(i'm at a loss for words here ;)
What could they possibly have in common...acting, perhaps?

Oh, no!!! Now I'm only thinking of Halle Berry not Lebanese Politics.
I'm sure some friend of mine will come up with a way to make Halle Berry Lebanese. They do for everyone else, except perhaps for Michael Jackson.
One I heard recently: Rod Stewart is Lebanese.
Come on, guys. The Irish Chris DeBurgh may wish he is Lebanese, but British pop stars and American beauties are definitely not Lebanese.
We have our own Berries. Sadly, most of ours are rotten.
