In Denial: A Play in One Act

This is my caption for this photo caption contest where Zardari, Ahmadinejad, and Manmohan Singh are mingling at a recent summit meeting:

Zardari to Ahmadinejad: "What Terrorism?"
Ahmadinejad to Zardari: "What Holocaust?"
Singh: "Morons."

In Denial: A Sequel

Zardari to Ahmadinejad: "What cash fraud?"
Ahmadinejad to Zardari: "What vote fraud?"
Singh: "Morons."

In Denial: Encore

Zardari to Ahmadinejad: "What nuclear marketing?"
Ahmadinejad to Zardari: "What nuclear targeting?"
Singh: "Morons."

Congratulations, Stupor-man

Bill in Kill Bill 2 says "Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent? He’s weak...He’s unsure of himself...He’s a coward. Clark Kent is Superman’s critique on the whole human race."

Interesting thought, but I dunno...I just thought Superman acted like Clark Kent so that no one would even begin to think he's Superman, that's all. However, there is a pseudo-hero out there who does seem to have this critique on humanity, given the philosophical underpinnings of his apathetic, coma-inducing ideas. Given my recent posts, it's not hard to guess who!

Mystics of Death

Zimbabwean "traditional healers"...shouldn't they get a taste of their own medicine...well, ok, at least some type of legal action?

Sadly, faith healing is big here too, where false cures (redistribution) spread to the populace result in the exploited (the productive).
