"The US supports your protest!" 9 February 2011

When men lift the lid of a sarcophagus representing 'tyrrany' with a mask of President Mubarak engraved on it they discover 'Uncle Sam' inside; he raises an arm and says 'The US supports your protest!'. The little Evans character says 'something sphinx!' (wordplay on 'something stinks'). Context - the popular uprising against Mubarak which after 18 days caused him to flee. The United States did appear to be supporting the revolutionaries but has for decades helped prop up the dictatorship with aid in order to maintain stability in the region.
