Cartoon: Return of the Mummy

Cartoon: Return of the Mummy
by Omid Hast

President Mubarak has addressed the nation in a television broadcast after more than two weeks of anti-government protests in Egypt.  He said he would continue to do his duty under the constitution until power was transferred to whoever won free and fair elections in September.

I drew this cartoon yesterday after watching Mubarak’s televised speech.  Today seems to be a different story, requiring a different kind of cartoon.


Mubarak just resigned! :)

Nice cartoon Omid. Now let's watch what a nation of 7000 years of civilisation are going to do with their newly gained freedom. I hope they do much better than that nation of 2500 years of civilisation 32 years ago.

OMG! Mubarak must be a good fodder for cartoonists!

Well, everything is still fluid! Lets see how long his return will last......the media said that the military is on people's side.......I was wondering if mutiny is in the offing!

Thank you for the timely cartoon!

Mubarak Joke from Foreign

"When Nasser became president, he wanted a vice president stupider than himself to avoid a challenger, so he chose Sadat. When Sadat became president, he chose Mubarak for the same reason. But Mubarak has no vice president because there is no one in Egypt stupider than he is."
