CAIRO, EGYPT--Egyptian ruler Hosnie Mubarak promised to step down today after he goes to the bathroom.-TS
This comes on the heels of multiple promises to relinquish control after increasingly shorter intervals beginning with, "I'll retire after a couple more election cycles," followed by "I won't run again," to finally, "Please, I'll quit very soon."
Mubarak's latest promise, to retire after he uses the presidential bathroom one last time, has only led to greater unrest.
"He's been in power thirty years," said one Egyptian. "He can use the pot on his own time."
The Egyptian strong man has already resigned three times but never without his fingers crossed behind his back.
"He has more comebacks than Michael Jordan," said Muhammed Akeem.
