A fitting end: Castro‚Äôs hearse breaks down
The vehicle carrying Fidel Castro‚Äôs remains during his funeral parade broke down yesterday. Soldiers had to push it through the streets.
How symbolic! What could be more fitting, given the broken down nature of the antique Cuban state produced by Castro?
There have been plenty of choice comments on Twitter. Here‚Äôs the obvious take in the form of an old joke:
NOTHING in Cuba works. Except the prostitutes.
Here‚Äôs my favorite:
Even hell doesn‚Äôt want him.
I also liked this one:
For anyone who thinks the embargo didn‚Äôt work, show them this picture [of the hearse being pushed] and laugh. YES.
Wish PM Trudeau would have been there to help push.
Fidel never got around to ‚ÄúUniversal Auto Care.‚ÄĚ
Castro wasn‚Äôt funny in life. In death, perhaps he will become something of laughingstock.
