The Moral Maize

Holy Hell, but Zimbabwe is buggered. Screwed to the point where Mugabe is currently tempting the voters to flock to him by bribing them with food.

In ninety-nine percent of cases, the story here would be a corrupt dictator rigging the ballot boxes. Here it's that an entire country is so totally fucking fucked that its grotesque tyrant hopes to gain the support of the masses by briefly delaying their imminent starvation.

Personally, I blame Zimbabwe's 100,000% interest rate. And no, that is not a mistype.
