UN’s FAO swings and misses

In light of the recent statements made by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization general director, Jose Graziano da Silva, congratulating dictator Fidel Castro for "reducing" hunger among the enslaved and starving people of Cuba, Enrique Del Risco attempts to find the "punchline" in what certainly has to be a very bad joke.

Via Enrisco (my translation):

The FAO swings and misses

The FAO congratulates Fidel Castro for the reduction of hunger in Cuba... it appears to be the introduction to a great joke after reading the news, I cannot find the punchline anywhere. What do you all think?

These are my ideas:

-The FAO congratulates Fidel Castro for the reduction of hunger in Cuba... and asks advice on how to manipulate statistics to eliminate hunger in the entire world.

-The FAO congratulates Fidel Castro for the reduction of hunger in Cuba: the solution is in having half the population of starving people expelled from the island and then having them send money back to feed the other half that stayed behind.

-The FAO congratulates Fidel Castro for the reduction of hunger in Cuba as well as the World Surgical Association for the reduction of stomachs.

-The FAO congratulates Fidel Castro for the reduction of hunger in Cuba and the World Association of Taxidermists for the shrinking of the mouths and brains of Cubans.

-The FAO congratulates Fidel Castro for the reduction of hunger in Cuba. Perhaps tomorrow the news will be: "The World Health Organization posthumously awards Hitler for the reduction in obesity among Jewish people.

-The FAO congratulates Fidel Castro for the reduction of hunger in Cuba and also Herod for the reduction in infant malnutrition in Judea.
