Egyptian people and words

I have been meaning to say this and I should: the Egyptian people are so damn articulate.  They never ever suffer loss for words.  Give any Egyptian a microphone and he/she can talk unendingly.  I don't know why but it is a noticeable phenomenon.  This is why Egyptian TV stations often feature a man or woman sitting behind a microphone and they talk without guests for a long time.  In Lebanon, they always need a script: even when they ask questions to guests.  They act as ill-prepared as members of US Congress in congressional hearings.
