Fidel Castro Awarded Nobel Prize for Literature


Gee, he just started blogging and he's already winning awards! Fidel Castro, Renaissance man, called by Gabriel García Márquez the greatest master of the Spanish tongue since Cervantes, has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, Sweden's leading literary prize. Well, not quite, but just as relevant. The Union of Cuban Journalists (who are neither journalists nor a union) has awarded the Not-Quite-So-Maximum Leader its "Dignity Prize" (it must be a very little award) "in recognition of his exceptional merits and work in favor of the press and the homeland." The president of this un-union of un-journalists, Tubal Paez, said Fidel Castro "represents a synthesis of the dignity of all Cubans, the homeland and humankind." Throw in some implements of torture, a handful of chícharos and enough shit for blending and you shall have your synthesis, though surely it will bear no relation to "dignity."

No doubt all other Cuban "unions" will follow suit in honoring the man who outlawed independent unions in Cuba and strikes, replaced the 35-hour work-week (for which workers were entitled to 40 hours' compensation) with a 60-70 hour work-week during which workers pretend to work and the state pretends to pay them, eliminated the "13th month" bonus (which all Cuban workers received at Christmas), brought back child labor (abolished in Cuba in 1878), repealed minimum wage laws, abolished collective bargaining, made "volunteer" work for the state compulsory and authorized the payment of wages in script or non-convertible currency.

That's just the Soviet Way. And this is just the beginning, before they trash him....

Another clue to the fact that the fat bastard is dead. All the "homages" are going to come pouring out from these assholes' mouths now. Sinverguenzas!

I am still doing better this summer than Babalú. Maybe you should counsel your buddies to close shop. But, of course, they are on the verge of receiving their 2 millionth visitor. I'll have more to say on what a sham that is when the great event arrives.

Manuel:
Is this a joke? was he really awarded the Nobel Prize, I cannot believe this!

Vana:

Not yet. That will only happen when he completes his next book, which he is currently dictating from the grave.

Dictating from the grave, I like that, hope he's in it soon, and throw his brother in it, while we are at it

Purchasing memory cards is such a big hassle... You have to Google prices, filter through which ones are legit, visit a bunch of shops,compare prices, finally buy your memory, and then fervently pray that the price doesn't drop in the next 2 weeks or so.

I've been screwed over by rapid price drops in the past... especially this one time when I bought a Micro SD card for my R4 gaming flash card at what I mistakenly assumed was a bargain price, only to later see that it had dropped by five bucks in a week's time.
