Go ahead, you tell ‘im he’s nuts. I’ll wait over here

In the Olympic spirit,
Mugabe mistakes himself for one of the inhabitants of Mt Olympus.

Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe instructed the Commissioner General of Zimbabwe Police Republic … to arrest and detain the whole Zimbabwean Olympic Team members immediately they arrived the Harare International Airport ….

Zimbabwe which is one of the countries in the Olympics without a medal presented a team of 31 athletes. The closest any of the athletes came to win a contest was at the 8th position.

Mr. Mugabe who is incensed with the team’s performance told the Police Chief to arrest all the team members and detain them. “We have wasted the country’s money on these rats we call athletes. If you are not ready to sacrifice and win even copper or brass medals (referring the 4th and 5th positions) as our neighbors Botswana did, then why do you go to waste our money” he said. [story]

And people wonder why parts of Africa suck.

    I always wanted one of those Zimbabwean $1billion bank notes. You know, as a conversation piece.

    Well, all those idols are made out of wood and crappy paint.
    Gods get pissed without the bling, sometimes.

    If that continent cannot even get to the bronze age, and I was a god emperor seeking bling, I would be pissed. Maybe sacrifice a few virgins. Where is my volcano? I hear there is a certain foundation that will fix this.

    ^ Actually, there are signs in South African public bathrooms (yes, they do have ‘em) saying not to use “Zim dollars” as bumwad.

    not to use “Zim dollars” as bumwad.
    Of course not. They inflate so fast, they stop up the toilet.

    Isn’t this the same guy who took away farms from white farmers and then wanted them to come back? It appears cause and effect does not seem to register with this guy.

    Yeah, and he’s starting to do it with non-white political defectors, too.

    I would think any world class athletes from Zimbabwe would leave ASAP for programs in more civilized places rather than put up with the mental spasms of that goon Mugabe.
