Shaabula on the Swine Flu

[flv:shaaban-swineflu2.flv 470 360]

At last some useful content from MEMRI - they have a clip of Shaaban Abdel Rahim's song on the swine flu. My favorite line:

In every port and airport, we need to write in large letters:
You're not allowed to enter Egypt and bring a pig with you.

Rather funny that MEMRI went with a headline about how Shaabula would kill his dogs if he was offered compensation - which is what he says at the end of the interview.

Here's the song extracted from the video, in MP3 format - download [1.4MB].
