From discussing Reham Khan’s wedding dress and their possible honeymoon destination, to talking about every little detail one can possibly discuss about a wedding, our media has moved on to more mature current affairs.

US Sectary of State John Kerry ate a doughnut.

He did not just eat a doughnut, he ate a doughnut in Islamabad.

There is a difference in the above two statements because the latter is crucial to Pak-US relations and strategic dialogue.

Yes, eating doughnuts is central to developing mutually-beneficial foreign policies.

However, the major question on all our minds right now is, did he eat doughnuts in India?

And if he did, did he like them?

We, as a nation and an enthusiastic online community, have reacted to this ground-breaking news with emotion and genuine concern for our country’s foreign affairs.

Here are some of our most pressing concerns:

I feel you, Maryam. Really I do.

This next gentleman underestimated the Pakistani media:

Well Sir, what do you have to say for yourself now?

Aloha, You Ess of AYYYE! Here we come!!

The last tweet says it all, we have managed to please the US.

In light of this news, if Obama decides to visit Pakistan, PM Nawaz Sharif can proudly claim,

“In your face, Modi! My doughnuts bring all the boys to the yard, damn right they’re better than yours!”
