You Know What Rises To The Top, In USA Elections & Pakistan Politics – IMRAN™

What!? HOW DARE THEY DO THAT?! A shameful image to see on Pakistan‘s Independence Day, August 14! People of Pakistan …

Why are pictures of the founder of Pakistan, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, and respected Miss. Fatima Jinnah, up SO HIGH?

They are almost too close to the greatest leaders on the Planet (Lollywood) that no one will remember in 50 years.

Send 1000 Jootian (rotting shoes) to the ass licking chamchas (sycophants) who put up the posters this way. Thanks to Shams Bin Niaz for the photo.

For my non-Pakistani friends, this is like political parties here putting up posters of Donald Trump/Mike Pence or Hillary Clinton/Tim Kaine ABOVE posters of George Washington/Abraham Lincoln along city streets on the 4th of July. 

Sadly, we are not far from that situation here in USA either. A few years ago Fox News had actually done a segment on George W. Bush (Yes, the moron retard Iraq War one) being THE GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER

Seriously. It seems Pakistan has also reached that level of sickening political shamelessness. Or, wait…. is it the other way around?

MADitorial: Banking On Bad Headline Writing Skills & Helping Thieves

English is my third language, but even now I recall teachers at St. Paul’s High School in Karachi, Pakistan, teaching us to be careful in stringing words together. One of my favorite songs, Stairway To Heaven says something about how “sometimes words have two meanings”. But, sentence structure can have even more impact.

But, all too often, we see news stories, especially headlines, that can mean the opposite of what the writer intended. And, most often, they are not deliberate puns. I am sure I am guilty of such errors too.

Today’s daily email from the Palm Beach Post in my Inbox is amusing.

It states:


Armored-car worker shot at bank near West Palm

Attempted robbery happened this morning Wachovia Bank on Okeechobee Boulevard.

View map of bank | More crime news


First of all, the way it is written, the text suggests that the armored car worker, an armed guard usually, is the one who shot at the bank building or something related to the bank.

Secondly, the sub-heading does not continue logically from the headline itself. For example, it could have conveyed the same information, but tied to the headline by saying something like this, “Shot by bandits during morning robbery at Okeechobee Wachovia Bank” – even using terse verbiage for space-saving reasons.

But, what I find amusing about this reporting is how conveniently the “More crime news” link is placed right next to “View map of the bank”… the better to help the next set of bank robbers plan their getaway perhaps!
