As usual, Lebanese people have this amazing talent of turning anything into a joke. A defense mechanism perhaps, but our ability to find laughter in any situation, no matter how hard it is, makes us who we are.
Light-heartedness and positivity have always been the traits that make a Lebanese person special.
A few days ago, Lebanon was hit by a violent storm called “Norma.” The storm lasted 3 long days. It resulted in roads being shut, floods all over Lebanon, people stuck in their vehicles, avalanches, and unfortunately numerous injuries.
Lebanese people joked their pain away. Social media was buzzing with many jokes and memes about ‘Norma’ and we have picked the funniest below!
“Need anything? I’m leaving to work.”
A Lebanese passenger on a plane asked the hostess (as a joke of course) if the pilot can drop him in Baalbek knowing that Dahr El Baydar road is closed.
Just hit play. (make sure you turn on the audio and unmute the video)
