And every time he mentions Hosni Mubarak, he links his name to this. "La Vache Qui Rit," a French processed cheese spread widely available in the region (perhaps worldwide?), is the nickname Egyptians gave their jocular leader in the early 1980s, when he appeared in TV interviews and try to charm them with his joviality. I think perhaps that Egyptian and Arab bloggers should start a campaign to always link to that site when mentioning the name Hosni Mubarak. Think Google bomb. He certainly deserves it after that comment on Shias.
He's also finally left those dull Impressionists behind and is showing some wonderful Kandinskys these days.
