PSA to the tragicly hip Egyptians
This is a Sandmonkey special FYI targeting Egyptians and foreigners living in Egypt ages 16 to 34: According to the lords of everything that is cool and the mecca of Egyptian hippness that is known as the AUC and its crowd, it has been officially decreed that it is uncool and unhip to go out on a Thursday night. Instead, the new cool go-out nights are either Tuesday, Wendsday or Friday, and sometimes, just sometimes, Monday. This sudden change and designation of the historically official Go-Out night known as Thursday night to be unhip may seem confusing at first, but it's not without logic, for it serves 2 purposes: 1) To make sure that when the hip go out to their respective hip places ( may it be club 35, Cairo Jazz Club , Latex, Ritmo or Sangria) they do not have to subject themselves to unnecessary crowdedness and affiliations with uncool and unhip people; and 2) To help identify those among us who are not cool but think themselves cool enough to go to cool people's hangouts on Thursday nights and finding themselves there alone, absent the fabolousness of our presence amongst them. While this may seem Childish and Highschool-like to some foreign observers, we want to assure you at Sandmonkey Inc. that in Egypt, due to certain class structures and inferiority complexes, Highschool never really ends for some people. Elitism amongst the Hip ( See also : Pretty; Rich; Powerful; Connected and Coke-head) crowd regarding the nightlife and hangout spots runs its course strong until they are in their mid thirties and then is replaced with private parties and functions, to which the unhip are still uninvited or unwelcome, unless they made obscene amounts of money, which gurantees them instant hip status in Egyptian high class society and are then ok to be seen with. So please, if you plan on going out tonight, Don't. You will receive an official "Unhip" (Bee2a) designation and you are assured to not have a good time, because the people who do provide it- i.e. us-will not be there, so you will just end up wasting your money and not having fun. Our advice to you is this: Be hip; Stay at home tonight and go out tommorow. It's for your own good! Have a nice day!
