Gloomily stabbing at his birthday cake brought out for an intimate surprise party at the Prime Minister’s office, Imran Khan said that while Shehbaz Sharif being arrested was nice, he really would have prefered Murad Saeed singing him Happy Birthday.
“Oh no guys don’t get me wrong, really. This is a beautiful present. I’m tots in love with this” he said to friends trying to console him.
“And I know its the thought that counts and there was serious effort put into this, but I had really been hoping for the other thing” he said, referring to his desire to see Murad Saeed sing ‘Happy Birthday Mr Prime Minister” in a deeply sultry voice in a pink bedazzled ball gown.
“This is great. Really. Better even, and I know I’m better off this way, but I still can’t help feel just a little disappointed for what I didn’t get.”
“Its just, I mean, it kinda is my birthday. And these practical presents are nice . . . ” he said before trailing off.
“I’m just saying this was my special day and I should have gotten both things. Don’t you think I deserve that much at least?”
“I’m sorry. I’m just being a lil hypersensitive. Bae and I kinda had some words over the phone, even though was just joking around about some things” he ended.
