Recipes Sought for Cooking Laptops

Category: Humor/Satire

The recent announcement of Mr. Shahbaz Sharif, leader of Pakistan’s major political opposition party—the PML-N—may have won over some youngsters over the luring promise of free laptops. In a province ruled by his party, where poverty and disease prey on the lives of millions, the idea of pleasing youth by giving away laptops is sooooooooooooooo yummy! No worries now when thousands of laptop land on the cooking stoves of those who can’t buy a naan costing 12 cents. Feasting on silicon and plastic will be the manna only the most generous father could deliver.

There is just a teeny tiny, itsy bitsy problem with this bountiful treat—the recipe to cook these promised delicacies into a tasty delight. Though it probably won’t hurt to gobble it all up raw, given that decades of feudal oppression must have hardened the intestines of the suffering masses; yet, any germs of disguised bribery must be killed and the nutrients left intact by proper cooking. 

Accordingly, all who have a claim to genius are hereby invited to submit their recipes for cooking the promised laptops to turn them into a hearty meal. Those whose recipes are selected will be rewarded with a brand new made-in-Saudi laptop with a software that has nothing to do with terrorism.

(Note: What you just read is called satire. Don’t be a nut trying to find more in it!)
