"What costs over $1 million, has more than 20,000 people in attendance and serves baby elephant meat? Nothing could be too much for Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's 91st (that's right, 91st) birthday.

The party celebrating everyone's favourite African dictator (and the world's oldest leader) featured cakes the size of mattresses, songs from the ruling ZANU-PF's youth wing and a mounted lion for decoration. Mugabe's 90-minute speech focused on the travesty of hunting safaris in Zimbabwe. It seems the irony was lost on him." (Quoted from the e-newsletter I got the link from, not the article itself.)

To be fair, the speech seemed to be about how awful it was for white safaris in Africa, but still. Also, he's kind of the one allowing the hunting safaris? If he thinks they're that bad, he could easily ban them and only allow viewing or photo safaris. Just a thought.
