Hanini! What’s this? What’s happening? What’s going on?
It’s been a decade since the last episode of Will & Grace last aired, until a few days ago, when a 10 minute spin-off on the upcoming US election shook the internet and made us all do the Jack hands.
The chemistry’s still there. The actors haven’t aged a day. The hard-hitting puns are still on point. But what if that special episode had been based on Maltese politics? Some things would’ve been totally different, while others would’ve stayed exactly the same.
Will and Grace would’ve been the two most confused people in the room because no politician in Malta makes much sense, or rather, you often can’t tell the difference between one or the other.
Karen would be voting for Għaqda Patrijotti Maltin and she’d have marched in carrying bacon sandwiches.
Jack would be voting for PN because not all gay people should be “pigeonholed”.
Instead of mentioning the Ryan Lochte Dancing with the Stars incident and Brangelina’s divorce, the gang would’ve discussed ‘the right to build’ (what does that even mean?!) and the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza.
The official hashtag would have been #ivvotagaħan.
Grace would’ve still been totally scandalised that James Foley had an ass-double in Fifty Shades of Grey.
Karen wouldn’t have been able to say “the mohogany brown of the staff”, because apparently, people of African descent are now not allowed to even apply for jobs in public toilets anymore…
Karen would’ve sent Rosario to the American University of Malta, but she still would’ve read for a BA in Dusting.
Ultimately, the big question would’ve been left unanswered: Who would Katy Perry vote for: Simon or Joseph?
What else would’ve been different?
