Despite all the calls against firing guns in the air to celebrate the Brevet (grade 9) results today, a lot of people insisted on doing it their own way and fired off rounds into the air which unfortunately resulted in killing an 85 year old man after he was hit by a stray bullet in Baalbeck. At around 5PM I was also picking up my 3 months old baby from my parents’ house in Beirut and got outraged as I heard a bullet fall behind us on the sidewalk…
So, for all those people who felt euphoric for their kids getting this utterly stupid certificate, here are five ways you can put it to good use.
1. Paper cones
They’re cute and will add a nice touch to the party you will be throwing for your kid.
2. Paper planes
For those boring summer days.
3. Shawarma sandwich wraps
The right absorbent for those oily Shawarma sandwiches.
4. Paper mask
Something to match your silly face.
5. Shove it up your ass
Seriously, stop pretending like your kid actually accomplished something, and reflect about this while you slowly shove that certificate up your ass.
