    Everything is closed here at Bilawal House. Infact armed persons made sure that everything was closed. We are inside our bank branches and processing year end with fear. A Branch of UBL next to Barbecue tonight exists totally barbecued, i guess the terrorists wanted something barbecued since the restaurant was closed.

    Benazir arrives in the purgatory and the angel takes her to a new land and tells her “this country and all it’s people are yours to rule over”. Benazir: “Goody, so I’ve gone to heaven?” The angel replies: “No, these people have gone to hell.”
