On the eve of the referendum on Syria's new constitution, the Arab Digest team would like to share the following popular joke on "Syrian Elections":
A young Syrian woman went to the station polls. Over there, she mistakenly checked the no section on the ballot paper. Upon returning home, she recalled her error, and quickly notified her father, himself an Assad supporter. He angrily slapped her twice, then called the ballot station and explained the situation. The answer was quick: "we saw the mistake and corrected it".
