Political turmoil and lawlessness rocked Karachi for two days in the aftermath of MQM workers storming the offices of ARY News on Monday.

A quick succession of events followed: senior MQM leader Farooq Sattar was taken in for questioning by the Rangers in a dramatic stand-off, MQM founder Altaf Hussain apologised to Pakistan, Aamir Liaquat said some stuff, the MQM sought to distance itself from its London-based boss... and in all this, people still found time to make jokes.

What's so funny? Read on.

If one didn't have a sense of humor, it would be hard to survive in Karachi.

My favorite was the #shortstories. Sent it on a whatsapp group of close friends, and all of them admitted having a crush on that lady as well. And I frankly have no idea who she is :)

It was hilarious and it happen many times with our politicians when Thakur say "Bhai humain apna hath dai dain "

cracking jokes on serious country internal situation is a sad aspect of moral bankruptcy of a society.

It is about time that we Pakistani demand accountability in all institutions. No one is above the law.

Pakistan will always be Zindabad. We have Dilbaz Citizens in our great Nation. This was well needed after last couple of days of depressing episodes.
