Don’t slaughter your kharouf in the middle of the street…

A number of talk shows aired a little later than usual last night after a power outage at Media Production City. Regrettably, power was restored after a 15-minute gap which was caused by a problem with a transmission line, EMPC boss Osama Heikal told Masaa DMC’s Eman El Hossary (watch, runtime 2:18). Cue navel-gazing on other talkshows, which also dwelt on such groundbreaking topics as (wait for it): subsidized housing and plans to improve the ashwayet.

El Hossary then spoke to MP Magdy Malak about a 1980 law that prohibits the slaughter of livestock in the streets and outside butcheries during Eid. Malak is one of a number of MPs who want the law enforced (watch, runtime 3: 24), but an Agriculture Ministry suggested we not hold our collective breath (watch, runtime 3:35).
