Cartoon Egypt(?) Vs. Real Life Egypt

On Wednesday I was flipping through “The Washington Post” when I stumbled across this comic strip for “Speed Bump” of his little kid asking his daddy to ride a mechanized camel in the middle of desert.

I thought it pretty funny, but there is such a contrast between this cartoon and what’s going on in Egypt right now with all the rioting/protesting against the government.

The juxtaposition between the two photos I thought was really interesting (if slightly blurry).

Cartoon and Real Life
