Korean Tweeters Created A New Word, ‘Mubaraktic’, to Describe Someone Who Can't Take a Hint.

South Korean net users, many of whom experienced military regime's rule back in 1980, have expressed great interest to Mubarak's address today.

    Prime Minister from Dominica is mubaraktic too. He got into power by violating the constitution and wants to remain until 2050. He goes to court in a few hours for becoming PM as a dual citizen which is against our laws in Dominica. His best friends are Chavez, Castro and Gaddafi; as well as Peter Wirkham who has sold him out to the CIA.
