Bannanapook is a blog that “intends to document a revolutionary movement in a country where plenty happens but little is remembered” and does so with their help of their illustrious Instagram account.

Since they launched their Facebook page back in 2012, the peeps behind Lebanese Memes have reigned supreme over all things comedy. And with a self-professed mission to Lebanese across the globe through humor (rather than politics or religion), it's really a fun cause we can all get behind.
