I just LOVE America!
Frank Warner notes this:
As Cuban dictator Fidel Castro began speaking to a crowd he had gathered Tuesday in front of the official U.S. mission building in Havana, the U.S. mission lit up an electronic message on the fifth floor that startled the tyrant.
The sign said, in 5-foot-high Spanish words:
“No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.” Abraham Lincoln.
En español: “Ningún hombre es lo suficientemente bueno para gobernar a otros sin su consentimiento.”
The despot had been punked! It was as if Lincoln had held up devil’s horns behind Castro’s unelected pig head.
Castro’s response? He’s HAVING A WALL BUILT to block the view of the U.S. Mission.
In the comments section, someone suggested using lasers to project the message onto clouds next time, and another said it worked better on buildings and solid things. Murdoc suggested using the lasers to project the message onto the NEW WALL right behind good ol’ Fidel.
UPDATE: And Frank has posted a Photoshop recreation of the punkagery.
FOREHEAD-SLAPPING UPDATE: Buckethead writes in the comments:
I would suggest using lasers on Fidel Castro. Really powerful ones.
