Egypt is the largest province of Saudi Arabia its populatation is thought to number somewhere in the region of 10 buzzillion E-Gypsies all of which own at least 10 cell phones and 33 Twitter accounts per rag-head. Egypt was once an empire ruled over by all powerful race of super Aliens and was known for its magnificent, far-reaching civilization and complex sewer network. Over 9000 years ago Egypt earned infinite special bonus points for making a bunch terrorists butthurt when the great Pharaoh drove a herd of Golden Egg Laying Geese out of Egypt and accross the Red Sea.
By the third century B.C., it was known only for Camels. Since then, Egypt has been pwned by the Greeks, the Persians, the Romans, the Orginal Arabs (Egyptians are actually Berbers who later became to arabs), the Kurds, former Turkish military slaves and the Ottoman Turks, the French, the Albanians, the Brits, a short time also by the Germans and the Israelis and probably you.
In 1979 or thereabouts, Egypt became the first Arab state to sign a peace treaty with Israel when Jimmy Carter asked Prime Minister Sadat real polite-like to do so. Now the Egyptians have nothing to do. Shukran, rafiki, you need taxi? Change money? Bitrol? I can obtain for you this bitrol, okay, let's go.
Today Egypt is mostly known for its many bus crashes involving western tourists. If you see an E-Gypsie that isnt rolling dung with his legs into a gigantic ball, make sure you are carrying luggage as they will either think its a suitcase bomb destined for Israel or a chance to earn some shekels and instinctively offer to carry it up to your room for pocket change.
The original E-Gypsies built many technological wonders, assisted by some shit noone gives a fuck about. They also invented furry buttsecks and perfected the art of Mummification for the purpose of supporting its only functioning economy, the tourism and hospitality industry.
- Narmer, the founder of Egypt. Obviously the biggest furry of them all.
- Pepi II, famed for having 3pic buttsecks with his General repeatedly, which caused his death in the 96th year of his reign.
- Hatshepsut, the first known feminist, who's hobbies included pwning her stepson Thutmose III because he was MALE and crossdressing.
- Akhenaten, a man whose severe daddy issues and hatred of the normal Egyptian practice of worshiping furries led him to create a new religion centered on worshiping Aten, the sun disc. Unfortunately for Akhenaten the normal Egyptian population enjoyed jerking off to statues of Thoth too much to convert, and they pwned his monuments after his death. Akhenaten was also a family man who loved to have sex with his young female children. Unrelated, but still amusing, if his remaining monuments are anything to go by, he had an even bigger chin than Jay Leno.
- King Tut was made famous for having lots of cool stuff buried with him when he died. Other than that, his power lvl was basically 0.
- Ramses the Great's pastimes including counting his children and pwning the rest of the known world. Some people think he was the first one who had to deal with the Jews thinking that they had 1337 skillz that made them better than everyone else.
- Nectanebo II, the last native pharaoh of Egypt before Persia fucked his shit up. Also notable for being a creepy little fucker, some sources suggest he would whisper commands to people he killed, and tell them to do what he wanted in the underworld.
- Cleopatra was the last pharaoh of Egypt. She is known for molesting her little brother, then banging two famous Roman guys for power. One day she accidentally a snake, and ended up dead. Though it is thought it may have been on purpose due to a turning point in the war.
- Mubarak, longest-reigning dictator-pharaoh in modern Egypt, well-known for his brutal army of police mercenary. and a major anti-lulz advocate.
- Princess Amen-ra, cursed to destroy shit, helped an iceberg pwn the Titanic.
E-Gypsies were once recognised as some of the greatest builders of penis monuments and hillarious gigantic angular b00bies to evar live. This tradition of phalic and titty idolisation has since phased into dormancy due to the fact that the original E-Gypsies ran out of Mana nuggets during the Great Wild Goose Chase and they also converted from win to fail by adopting the religion of local rednecked terrorists. Without the potent spell accelerating Mana nuggets in the E-Gypsies possession they were unnable to bewitch the standing army of labourers into moon cricket form, the only productive form they are known to have.
Did you know? Pyramids were also used to store both dead and living people within amongst the accumulated treasures of the greatest of the Egyptian Pharaohs. Most of which were later borrowed and preserved a few thousand years later by the original Egyptians. E-Gypsies abiding by their new ghey religion began to take greater interest in Aisha lolis and thus stopped tending to the pyramids, they wound up crumbling to shit. The Nubians tried to build pyramids, but failed horribly. Today, the remaining wonders of the Ancient world have been conquered by tourists in Hawaiian shirts and Arab wanting to make a buck guiding them around on starving camels.
In January of 2011 the E-Gypsies decided living on U.N welfare handouts like a bunch of niggers was fail, so much so that it would be nice to give anyone with a television set around the world something back. So they set about to instigate a Greater Egyptian renaisence of arts, culture and traditional Egyptian values. The E-Gypsies, being today a good Allah fearing group of closet terrorists still largely unfamiliar with the ways of old decided to start the process of renewal off by relearning the basics of Freemasonry.
Unfortunately, the Masons turned down including Egypt in their cabalistic empire on the basis that Egypt is a shithole. Islamists on the other hand were more the happy to give it a go. They won free and democratic elections, the first ones ever in Egypt. Then, in good old Islamist style they immediately set out sneaky reforms to destroy what little freedom and democracy that was achived, while telling the e-gypsies that giving that Morsi dude absolute powers was OK because he is a pretty nice guy. In a recent and very confusing development, the e-gypsies not only realized what was going on but also got off their butts and turned up in force and numbers. They'll probably still fail in the end, since they are after all Arabs, but one has to admire them for trying. It's a bit like watching "So you think you can dance" when they show off one of those phat chicks. Atta girl, you can do it!
Actually, you can scratch the above. The real reason for the revolution was that the Islamists promised the e-gypsies cheap bread and gas (i.e. more welfare), jobs, no power blackouts during Operah, and 72 virgins. They failed to deliver on any of that for almost a year, which is a very long period of time compared to the long-term planning ability of an average sand nigger, which is generally on par with a squirrel. So who knows how this will end. They'll probably have a war with Israel just to kill off some of those thugs (the gypsies, not israelis).
