image for Zimbabwe accepts more Penalties
Robert Mugabe

Mugabe accepted Bush's offer for more penalties magnanimously. Villagers were seen rejoicing in the streets as the news was announced by the town-criers all over the country. Zimbabwe, already reeling under the joy of seeing Mugabe re-elected as President, had more reasons to buy the loaf of bread they had been postponing for weeks.

"Tonight. We celebrate like never before. It is truly magical. To watch our government and democratic process recognized by the most democratic country in the world. A country which fights for democracy in every corner of the world. We are truly honoured ... ", read the town criers in every village.

George Bush's generous offer of more of penalties is in response to the recent democratic presidential elections. This was following some despicable acts of opposition voters showing their broken bones and burns from boiling water and plastic to western reporters.

"This act is against the sensibilities of any civilization. To parade your wounds to win pity is low. Really low. We love elections and entertainment. You don't show us grotesque images and get away with it. Bush needs to stand by the TV viewing public and punish the opposition in Zimbabwe.", said a spokesman for the Society against any Attack to American Sensibilities.

The penalties shall now enable Mugabe to govern the violent country with an even firmer iron grip. The US government had used this ploy in the past, the most famous one being Fidel Castro, leader of Cuba.

"It is our aim to push Mugabe into a comfort zone which enables him to become a harsher and more violent dictator. History should remember him. And we shall create the conditions for that.", said a Bush spokesman.
