Havana, Cuba (IP) Our international reporter, Poindexterous Finootch, is in Havana this week and has learned that Cuba's farm animal population has been reduced to 14 cows, 3 bulls, 2 donkeys, and one goat.
The animals have learned to construct rafts and have left the island for a better life in Florida and elsewhere.
Mr. Finootch reports that many of the animals now reside in Belle Glade, Florida near the cool banks of Lake Okeechobee. Another destination is Pahokee, Florida which is only 10 miles north of Belle Glade.
Some of the more well-to-do bovines have saved enough money to relocate to India where they know they will not end up sizzling under the golden arches.
They have no problem gaining political asylum once they make it onto American shores. Things have gotten really bad in Cuba and one cow may have actually seen Raul Castro in a raft of his own.
Raul made it half way to the USA and then turned back when he remembered that Fidel had died back on Christmas of 2006 and had left almost a billion dollars squirreled away.
The money is there for Raul's pleasure. Raul had been taking sleeping pills and had sleeped walked his way onto a raft under the impression he was nothing more than a modern day Cuban peasant who had been victimized by Castro's phony revolution and his looting of the island's wealth.
The Castro brothers are just two more in a long line of Central and Latin American tin horn despots who talk the big talk about revolution while they loot whatever treasure they can get their hands on and eliminate those who see through their cheezy schemes.
