How-to: Lebanese Cabinet



(This post is dedicated to the Lebanese politicians who finally managed to form a governmental cabinet after 50 days)

For some reason or other, you want to build a Lebanese Cabinet....
You may be foolish, over-ambitious, a masochist, neglected as a child, whatever. You have made your decision and you are not backing down.
I will try to guide you through this confusing process in a simple IKEA-inspired manner:

  1. Unpack a century's worth of religious baggage and political grudges
  2. Place the 18 different 'sect'-ions in an orderly pile in the corner.
  3. Place the 2 large legs marked "Christian" & "Muslim" as close to each other as possible.
  4. Insert panels marked "Opposition" & "Drones" into the appropriate slots on each leg.
  5. Lay the 18 'sect'-ions on their placeholders
  6. Strengthen all joints with "Super Jargon" cement (supplied in kit)
  7. Paint it red white & green
  8. Leave to dry in public place
Enjoy your brand-new guaranteed Lebanese Cabinet!*


* Guaranteed for 4-years or one political assassination whichever comes first
Build quality may differ from that depicted here
Warranty void if cabinet is misused, eg. placed under direct control of neighboring powers
