All this, and a frugal snack!

uglycastro.jpgWe haven't been this jealous of a house gift since the Pope got a cool velvet painting.  Now comes word that Fidel's recovery has been bolstered by an 80th birthday visit from Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, who presented him with this awesome bit of sofa-sized goodness after sharing what the deliciously-named Cuban "newspaper" Granma calls a "frugal snack." (The contents of the snack were unspecified, but I'll bet there were no mojitos or deep-fried pork-and-cheese torpedos, pobrecitos.)

Just tell me that, when I'm  80, you'll give me something this nifty...plus a frugal snack!

Hey, I'm not waiting for your 80th birthday. I am going to start surfing the net to find a larger than life size drawing (?) of Fidel for your Christmas gift!
