What a delightful duo

Oldish news I know but last week Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took a trip to visit one of his firmest friends (apart from Hugo Chavez that is).

The visit did not go down well with everyone. Morgan Tsvangirai condemned it as "a colossal political scandal" and "an insult to the peace-loving people of Zimbabwe and Iran".

The MDC statement on the visit was scathing about his visit: "His visit will definitely send a wrong message about the kind of company that we keep at a time when the people of Africa and the rest of the world have begun to see us as a nation working hard to restore democracy and good governance."

It added that while the Ahmadinejad would be "wining and dining" in Zimbabwe, nine opposition activists in Iran faced death sentences for contesting the outcome of last year's presidential election.

"Choice of friends defines character and inviting the Iranian strongman to an investment forum is like inviting a mosquito to cure malaria.”

How very true

If you add Chavez and Curious George
Galloway you can have a really bad
singing group Geezer 2 Tyrany. If those dreadful boy bands were popular
imagine the sales of that Quartet.

They could be the Back Stabbing Boy.

Snipers seem a bit rusty - perfect chance.

On the other hand Galloway would be the groupie and not the star Beakerkin!

A lot of people would have cheered I'm sure James

Jams all of these idiotic Boy bands have four members. I guess Kim Jong Ill will have to join. Galloway could
then be a groupie.

The Backstabbing Boyz could be bigger than Menudo.

On a more serious note are the adventures of the real Curious George available by you. The real artists apparently fled the Holocaust.

I've not read curious George. THe Reys did the right thing getting out of that place

No childhood is complete without Curious George.

Hmm... holding hands. I notice that Mugabe seems to be better dressed, though.

Prehaps Mugabe likes a bit of rough!
