Well, it had been on the cards for the while. The man they once thought about rubbing out with exploding cigars – Fidel Castro – finally popped his clogs at the grand old age of 90. Having survived a rumoured 638 assassination attempts, it seems pure old age was what got to him in the end. He now gets nine days of mourning. Nine! Still, at least he never lived to see his country taken over by Starbucks and American tourists.
A big hand for Predictor Sasa on this occasion – apparently he was so delighted, he shouted “I’VE GOT CASTRO!” joyfully from the toilet.
