I can’t remember the last time I laughed this hard.
Apparently, there was a robbery at the University of Houston in Texas. Some Lebanese student who attends that university was one of the “victims” of the robbery.
He gave his name as “Abu Sharmouta” and it seems that no one at the station spoke Arabic to stop them from broadcasting the reportage. Throughout the interview, he keeps a completely straight face as he recounts the story of what happened.
But I honestly doubt he was even there and just took the opportunity to mess with TV reporters when he saw them.
It’s absolutely hilarious! They not only say “Abu Sharmouta” but they also write it on the screen when he’s talking!
