A fart joke in Moroccan Arabic

I was handsomely rewarded for checking my Facebook news feed this morning. A Moroccan friend, whose name means "loyalty" (I absolutely love Moroccan and Arab names), posted the above cartoon in Moroccan Arabic.

The young man is leaning toward the young woman, his left arm propping him up on the tree. The young woman is standing, leaning against the tree, under the man's gaze. His hand is gestured toward her, and he asks, "Young lady, why are you standing alone here?"

She replies, "In order to fart."

بالدارجة المغربية:

الشاب: واش الشابة. وعلاش راكي قاعدة وحدك هنا؟؟

الشابة: باش نحزق 


ash-shab: wash ash-shaba. w3lash raky qa3da wa7dk hinna?
ash-shaba: bash n7zaq

Have you seen any fun/funny Moroccan cartoons lately?
