And Then God Created the Middle East and Said ‘Let There Be Breaking News’

Karl reMarks

‘A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew walk into a bar. According to new guidelines on religious tolerance, they enjoy a mutually respectful time.’

‘People often ask me ‘what is the Middle East?’ It’s the area between Egypt, Iran, Yemen, Turkey and the British Museum.’

‘When God put Europe near the Middle East, it was an Occident waiting to happen.’

Bringing together over one hundred of the wildly wry observations and sketches of online sensation Karl Sharro, aka Karl reMarks, this is the perfect book for anyone looking to understand the mysterious land of dervishes, falafels and despotic leaders.
