El Koshary Today would like to share with its readers this article that our office boy (who is actually named “Wala”) stumbled upon in The Economist’s website.
Bursting onto the newsy websites scene, El Koshary Today has taken Cairo and other cities in Egypt by storm. Amassing an unprecedented 12 million hits daily, it has suddenly become one of the top sources of information for not only Egyptians but also for koshary enthusiasts around the globe.
Success has triggered rumors about a possible merger with Koshary Abou Tarek. Other popular koshary venues such as El 3arees and El Tahrir are reportedly planning to enter the fray with their own bids.
EKT insiders claim that the staff were ecstatic at the prospects of free koshary for life, in addition to tailor-made misprinted koshary containers with EKT's branding (in florescent colors). Not only would it expand the reader base of EKT, it would also significantly enhance its reputation, with large sums of money reportedly involved. However, many readers are skeptical; they fear EKT would simply turn into a mouthpiece for Abou Tarek, or other potential mobsters.
Analysts agree that in the current financial climate mergers will be inevitable.
Note: EKT has submitted a formal complaint to The Economist’s editorial team; we actually get 12.5 million hits a day. And Abou Tarek can kiss our ass!
