Gadhafi Carol

Today, I’m going to be a little lazy. I seem to be suffering the effects of the Lawyer Flu (H1N2). Unlike the H1N1, which will kill us all, this one only annoys the heck out of you. In the final stage, I hear it sues your colon, but I don’t know about that yet.

Since I’m being lazy, I’m just going to re-print something interesting I read. I figured you could all stand to learn a little more about our friend Moammar Gadhafi. Enjoy. . .

AP -- New York

In his long and dramatic address to the UN today, Libyan leader and noted Swiss-hater, Moammar Gadhafi aired various eyebrow-raising complaints. Among his targets:
• The UN Security Council, which he called the “Terror Council” for failing to prevent conflicts around the world since 1945, including his own coup in Libya.

• Everyone who says he looks like Michael Jackson.

• Switzerland, because he’s lactose intolerant.

• The premier of China, who keeps saying “nice dress” whenever he sees Gadhafi.

• The UN delegation from Kongo Bora, who keep calling him Gadhafi Duck.

• New York. He wants the UN moved from New York because New York is an inconvenient location for him and it causes him to suffer from jetlag. He also ranted for several minutes about the difficulties inherent in getting camels to board airplanes.
Gadhafi also whined about the Iraq war, which he described as the mother of all evils, and about General Mills, which sold him a box of Lucky Charms that contained the mother of all weevils.

He accused the Fed of being part of an international conspiracy to destroy the Libyan currency -- the Turd. He said that Oliver Stone killed JFK, who is not really dead, but instead lives on the moon deflating world oil prices. And he claimed that swine flu was some sort of plot by non-Arab governments, though he mumbled so badly that no one is sure exactly what he said.

At one point, he tossed the UN Charter fourteen feet across the floor, coming close to the record of fourteen feet three inches set by S'mdum Bastrd from Tossilvania. His throw was enough to place him second, however, just edging out the former Chancellor of East Germany.

Many have speculated as to what caused Gadhafi’s erratic behavior. Some suggest Gadhafi was upset from lack of rest. He had planned to set up his tent on Donald Trump’s property in Bedford, NY, home to Martha Stewart and Ralph Lauren, who also live in tents. But Trump wasn’t home or didn’t answer the doorbell when Gadhafi rang. So he ended up staying at a U-Store-It in Englewood, New Jersey, where he had no access to water or electricity, and he lacked the necessary southern view to get satellite television.

During the night, Gadhafi apparently also experienced difficulties when he was visited by three guests. First, came Louis Farrakhan, who discussed the past with Gadhafi, reminding him of how happy he was before he seized power. Then he was visited by two unknown young African American men in “Raiders” jackets, who showed him what life was like for average New Jersey residents, meaning they stole his tent and graffiti'd his camel. Finally, he was visited by a vagrant who spoke to him of the future, before sexually assaulting him. The vagrant has been charged with sexual assault on a foreign dignitary, which carries a penalty of three days in prison.

In any event, Gadhafi’s speech hasn’t gone unnoticed. As of this writing, most news organizations have reported on his erratic behavior. CNN called it “shockingly insulting,” CBS News referred to it as “Moammar’s Rant”, while MSNBC described it as “a brilliant tour de-force that continues to prove the evils of Bush administration policy.”

The White House had no comment on the content of the speech, though they did congratulate him on his second place finish in tossing the UN charter. They also promised to cut down the trees blocking his satellite view at the U-Store-It.

Tomorrow, Gadhafi plans to unleash a plague of locust at the UN, where he warns prophetically that they will destroy every crop in New York City, starving the people of Manhattan.

Andrew: Hysterical! One small question. Do you know why the guys in the Raiders jackets demonstrated life in New Jersey? Have you been to Oakland lately?

AndrewPrice said...

Lawhawk, Thanks. Despite the really poor performance of the Raiders, Raiders jackets have become gang uniforms in most major cities, you'll see that up and down the east coast. You see a lot of Mike Vick jersey's too.

CrispyRice said...

LOL! I'm guessing this isn't an EXACT reprint, eh?

AndrewPrice said...

CrispyRice, There may be a typo or two, but I'm pretty sure I copied it exactly like the AP wrote it.

LL said...

Crispy Rice - I think that it IS an exact reprint.

One can see that Quaddafi and Dear Leader are cut from the same flap of the tent.

And, for the record, I'm in favor of moving the UN to Libya, where ALL delegates can sleep in tents.

AndrewPrice said...

LL, I am all for moving the UN to Libya. Talk about a great location for it!

Writer X said...

Andrew, the AP could only wish to publish a story as accurate as yours! ;-) Very, very funny. I love it!

I understand that Gadhafi's UN translator fell asleep during his speech. What a freak show!

BTW, is there a vaccine for H1N2? Or at least a special way that you're supposed to sneeze?

AndrewPrice said...

Writer X, Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. The only vaccine for H1N2 is rest and lots and lots of money.

In terms of sneezing, I believe you're supposed to sneeze into crowds.

hey andrew, do you realize that your initials are the same as AP's? coincidence or are you punking us?! ASHTON COME OUT!

Can you really fault Gahdawfulli for complaining about the difficulties of getting his camel aboard the plane. After all if you were going on a long trip would you not want to take your wife with you.

Have a heart!

AndrewPrice said...

Patti, in truth, I'm the owner of the AP! ;-)

Individualist, I can't imagine what it would take to put a camel on an airplane. Maybe they have carriers like for dogs?

Very funny! Straight from the AP.
