Reporters from around the world are rushing to what seems to be the biggest archeological discovery under the modernized ghostville that is now Downtown Beirut.
Digging hundreds of meters under the lavish empty appartments and unaffordable high end shopping stores, Lebanese excavators have uncovered a weird body, dead and deformed beyond recognition.
The fragile corpse moved to the advanced labs of the American University of Beirut, was examined by local experts who announced to the media that a radiocarbon test dated the dead artifact to the 80’s or early 90’s.
A few days later, a press conference was held at the Lebanese Press Club where a team of archeologists and historians took on the microphone to make one shocking announcement.
“After profound examination and long hours of testing, we have come to a conclusion that the rare corpse unearthed from under the modern Beirut down town was no other than the long disappeared Lebanese middle class!”
To the surprise of everyone, the experts continued exposing other artifacts found in the same burrial site such as a cassette containing oldies french songs, passes to the once famous Beirut tramway as well as a wide array of dead hopes, dreams and aspirations.
Tickets were soon on sale for all Lebanese to come and admire their dead middle class however the big lower class being too poor to afford it and the small rich upper class being at the Cannes festival caused low turn out at the ticketing box office.
Only students majoring in economics showed up to try and explain to the archeologists themselves how this once thriving middle class, the slice of society which modern nations depend on to prosper, was wiped out by corrupt politicians forcing the educated majority to flee the country or suffer being violently pushed down the prosperity ladder.
This story didn’t fail in having its own tragic end as the historical artifact mysteriously disappeared from the university labs.
Some eye witnesses leaked information stating that the dead Lebanese middle class was now decorating the living room of a renowned Beiruti politician suspected to be none other than a corrupt Minister named Tare2. Minister Tare2 El Taba2alwosta.
