Here are some of those text messages that have angered the Pakistani establishment:
1. Long lines
A man standing in a long line for food tells the others in the line that he is leaving the line to go to shoot the president. He returns after a few hours and rejoins the line.
Did you manage to kill him, everyone asks him.
No, that line is longer than this one, he replies.
2. Robber meets Zardari
Robber: Give me all your money
Zardari: Don’t you know who I am? I am Asif Ali Zardari.
Robber: OK. Give me all my money.
3. TV anchor announcing:
Terrorists have kidnapped our beloved Zardari and are demanding
$5,000,000 or they will burn him with petrol. Please donate what you can. I have donated five liters of petrol.
4. Postmaster General announcing
To commemorate the ascension to the Presidency, Pakistan Post has officially launched a new stamp. But the people of Pakistan are confused which side on the stamp to spit on.
5. Announcement in Zardari’s official airplane
Mr. President , We are about to land.
could you please put Sherry Rehman (former Information minister) in an upright position. Thank you.
6. Pakistani meets American
Pakistani to American: What do you guys do with thieves?
American: We treat them humanely and give them nice food, warm clothes and long jury trials
Pakistani: That’s nothing. We give them the presidency.
7. Genie meets a Pakistani
