Slow news day in Sri Lanka.
Same as always in the Castro Kingdom: promoting useless solutions to the island’s economic disaster, making shady deals with third-world nations, cultivating crops for export rather than for the Cuban people, straining at gnats and swallowing camels.
Conservative estimates on the percentage of arable land going to waste and not being farmed in Castrogonia: somewhere around sixty percent.
Oh, but this coconut sector is the ticket: it’s going to pay off, big time, and make the Revolution successful, for sure.
Same nonsense as ever in the dystopian land of the Castro dynasty. As Fidel might have said when he still had intestines and a brain:
“Con el coco todo, sin el coco nada. Coco sí, Coca-Cola no. Y al Coco imperialista no le tenemos miedo. Ese es el imperio Yanqui del coco falso, del coco seco, del coco podrido. Ese imperio esta lleno de caca, no de coco, y le falta poco fara que se le funda el foco y llore a moco tendido, y se vuelva loco con envidia. Y nuestros cocos serán los mas grandes del mundo, los mas bellos, los mas jugosos, los mas sabrosos, los mas caros, los mas revolucionarios, y se los venderemos a los hindues y los musulmanes y los alemanes, y los esquimales, y tendrán que construir los buques mas grandes del mundo para llenarlos con los billones y trillones de cocos que les venderemos. Y cuando llegue a Moroco el coco nuestro– el coco pa’ moroco — necesitaran billones de camellos para cargarlos. Muerte a la capitalista Coco Chanel, viva el coco nuestro. Vivan los cocos de Karl Marx, y muerte al los de los hermanos Marx. Coco o muerte, venceremos…”
