Ramadan a la Egypte part deux (Pastiche)

Moved on! Check TheCairoCalls

A while ago, while I was studying postmodern literary theory, I came across the term pastiche, and since, I couldn't help it but think about it every time I came across one of only-in-Egypt kind of things.
The most recent pastiche occurred to me while I was forced to watch Melody TV in one of Cairo's cafes. Only in Egypt I thought: a video for 50-cent, literally swamped with bikini-clad hoochie mammas, overlayered with the SMS bar full with messages like 'la illah illa Allah, Mohammed rasol Allah'!!.

Moved on!
