The Abu Mahjoob Thread

Guys I don't know if many of you know this, but in Jordan he's the most famous thing.

Guys meet Abu Mahjoob. A cartoon character created by a genius called Imad Hajjaj. Abu Mahjoob portrays the common Jordanian, and his cartoons depict the everyday life, stories and anicdotes of the Jordanian citizen. He also has alot of political cartoons. A true genius.

For those, who'll be able to understand the culture (and language ) you will find this to be hillarious.

Since it's Ramadan I'll start off with this one:



For those who can't read Arabic, I'll transalte:

It's Iftar time, and in the background the Imam is praying.......

Abu Mahjoob(on the right): God Bless this food......Abu Mohammad!!..Where have you been? Come join me for Iftar...Have a bite

Abu Mohammad: Bon Appetit (I don't know the English word for Sahtein) Abu Mahjoob. But since when do you eat Iftar at the Omani time??

I know it's not that funny. But I decided to start with this one since it was something being talked about in the Happy Ramadan thread.

I hope you like them, I'll post more.

From www.ImageShack.us, after uploading your image, you can remove the black bar under the image, somewhere in the left!! and then you will have to upload your image again so that the black bar won't come again, and when that black bar is removed your image will be at its normal size!!

This one was after the government gave license to another mobile company to start working in Jordan, Fastlink was the only one for 5 years, sucked its customers dry, after the other company started business, their tone changed and this is what Hajjaj is trying to say here. However, Fastlink threatned the newspaper that they will stop publishing their advers at their papers if they do not fire Hajjaj, fastlink turned out to be a very very very powerful company and economic power house in Jordan. Anyhow, this draw had the latest style of Fastlink advers, he just screwed it up for them
