Michael Jackson, who has been known to occasionally don the niqab, has become an unlikely fashion icon for residents of Cairo’s tony Zamalek neighborhood.

Following on TBE’s earlier reporting on surgical mask usage in Zamalek, The Daily News Egypt is reporting that pharmacies on Cairo’s fairest isle are selling the masks like gangbusters, with upticks in sales also reported in Doqqi and Downtown.

TBE has also received unconfirmed reports that the newest weapon in the arsenal of Western and Egyptian women faced with unwanted advances from men is to claim that they have tested positive for swine flu, or to simply mimic the symptoms of said flu. No word on the efficacy of this technique was available at press time.

More news after the jump.

In other swine flu news, US hip-hop artists continue to be fascinated with the AUC dormitory outbreak. Tony Yayo, a second-stringer from 50 Cent’s G-Unit, has rushed out a mixtape to capitalize on widespread interest in the rapidly developing situation in Zamalek, replete with a cover showing him forcibly entering the quarantined dormitory.
