The Whale Has Resurfaced By Saleh Serbah, Algiers The logs floated closer -almost colliding at times- and musicians clumsily prepared as the 50-foot bullet-shaped whale blasted into the sky, blocking the sun's rays for a minute or so, before taking in enough air to dive into the water again.The wait has paid off for the King and his flock, who had gazed upon the horizon for hours, hoping for the annual resurfacing of Al-Khidr's whale.What started out as a small annual gathering of Al-Khidr followers turned into a national holiday, celebrated with the blessing (and attendance) of the Page 04 , 05 king.

Long-Forgotten Treasures Burried Beneath the Green Dome By Asalah Anas, Baghdad Barhoum and his team located a golden gate just in the middle of the cracked dome, of course by the time they arrived, the gate was already open and the treasures were already stolen. "I was surprised the gate was not broken", said Barhoum, "Whoever that One Thief Gang guy is, he knows his onions". Since we all woke up yesterday to the surprise that the green dome was not, in fact, a dome at all, Barhoum has taken the initiative to investigate the incident. "There must have been tons of treasures here, these are the largest halls I've ever seen", Barhoum contemplated. It is also worth mentioning that the color of the dome turned from green to blue after the incident, which rendered its name, the Green Dome, meaningless; since it is now neither green nor a dome.

The One Thief Gang The One Thief gang, which are allegedly responsible, ware unheard of until Barhoum undisclosed their name and other information, which are now available to the public exclusively on The Broadcast. Little is known about the man behind it all, and how the people, places in his life and his mental state has influenced his decision to oddly name himself the ‘One Thief Gang’. “He only spoke to me once, but that’s all I needed to tell he could have been the greatest man ever lived, if only that was what he wanted”, Barhoum explained. Moreover, when we asked him why he refused the One Thief gang offer, “It is true that I was once a looter, but as you grow and see the world, your views on life change”, he replied, “besides it would no longer be a One Man gang if I was to join”.

The origin of the dome was always a controversial subject among historians, some believed it was built by Adad-nirari III during the Neo-Assyrian dynasty, while others claim that it was surely built far back into history by the Neanderthals, and Adad-nirari III just reconstructed it after it was almost worn out by the toll of time

"I have not missed a single whale watching day since I got circumcised 83 years ago", said another -very- old man sitting in the front row, even though everyone knows he has been naturally blind from birth. The National Whale Watching Service has also issued updated guidelines this year, since the last year accident, when a very enthusiastic whale-watcher decided to tie himself to a swarm of crows, thinking they would lift him up in the sky for a better view, and ended up being pecked to death.

The Remembrance of Women Disappearance The unexplained disappearance of females has left the younger generation devastated By / Bader Baher According to those who had wives once, almost fifteen years ago -in the 10th of March, was the first day they woke up to find themselves alone (with their children, the male ones). The mysterious case of the disappearance of women still, of course, stirs public outcries for help from residents. Renowned Businessman and visionary entrepreneur, Gabeer Haseeb, told us that the contractor manufacturing the new plastic housewife models has promised to increase the production rate, hoping to match supply to the increasing demand. The demand has apparently skyrocketed after the puritans finally made it public on national TVs, that they lost all hope of ever finding a real woman anytime soon. "we are doing our best to make the most realistic plastic women ever", said Gabeer, "given the little actual data we have about them, that is". Fifteen years were more than enough to erase almost all of what we know about women, that we had outside of the data that some managed to write down, before the passage of time took its toll on their memories. Back then, when there were women, they were not allowed to appear or even being talked about in public, but now that they're plastic, we find ourselves talking about them all the time; maybe that is one advantage we should embrace.

Art and Literature

By Barah Rafeeq, Algiers The state-of-the-art exhibition, costing 4.2 million dinars and over a year to construct, is finally upon us. “This here is the future of tea bags”, said Mootaz Shamandar, 34, one of Asaad’s fans and the man who oversaw the development of the exhibtion. “Asaad was strongly inspired by his cildhood and his mother’s attitude towards tea shopping”. This exhibtion will be the measure of the growing public interest in the aesthetics of tea bags; the way it looks, and the tactile shivers it sends down the spine.

By Bakeer Qassi Fareed Wali’s first and only published novel “Beer in the Video club”, was just re-issued in a new edition featuring cover art by Masood Al-Ashash. If you’re not familiar with the title or the author’s backstory, I highly recommend you fix this immediately, you’ll be in for one wild ride. Fareed Wali’s excellent novel was first published by Audrey Bosch almost five decades ago, It garnered a lot of attention at the time. Unforunately, not so long after that, the author got too drunk and committed suicide, leaving behind only a tragic drunken-written suicide note.

Cairo Symphony Orchestra in Algiers

The widely-known Cairo Symphony Orchestra vists the city next week, or that is what they promised, we can only hope they make it this time. Hosny Shabana, the orchestra’s principal trumpeter, was their last excuse for not performing last week; they told us he broke his calcaneus bone while taking a shower in the airport hotel, “this time it is a valid excuse, we promise”, said the orchestra director. The orchestra, given they were honest, will perform Azhad’s Requiem for the audience. Needless to say no one will dare to buy the tickets until they see, with their own eyes, the orchestra warming up on stage .
