Barack Obama's popularity in Egypt reached a new 'high', with the introduction of a narcotic to the market bearing the President-elect's name.Hmmm..........
According to [one] Egyptian blogger..., dealers in the Mediterranean town of Marsa Martrouh are peddling an Obama brand hashish:"A new brand of (presumably black Moroccan) hashish has appeared in the Egyptian town of Marsa Matrouh, called 'Obama'!Another blogger, also based in Egypt, further comments:
"I recall in 2003 , a quite popular brand of hash that appeared in Cairo was named 'Saddam' coz it was 'stronger than chemical weapons.'""By the hash-o-meter, Barack Obama may be the most popular foreign leader in Egypt since Saddam Hussein."
