Libya - Thronging pro-Gaddafi multitudes (sic) were left wondering if the Colonel's rendition of 'Rainy Day Women No. 12 & 35' is a call to mass lapidation of rebels in nearby Misrata.
Sporting classic Dylanesque squashy porkpie hat and shades Gaddafi looked a dead ringer for the US singer/songwriter.
Witnesses commented they thought the Libyan leader might spring a guitar and mouth organ out of his customised open-top Zil as he burst into song along Triploi's equivalent of Rodeo Drive.
People clapped and cheered as the Revolutionary Leader was heard entreating the masses with 'Well, they'll stone ya when you're walkin' 'long the street/They'll stone ya when you're tryin' to keep your seat'.
His 50-strong female Amazonian Guard security detail provided backing vocals with the refrain 'Everybody must get stoned!'
Meanwhile at NATO HQ military strategists were wondering just how long the CIA can keep up its suppression of Cold War files showing the roots of the Dylan/Gaddafi doppelgangerism.
"There'll be hell to pay for if it gets out that Rudolf Hess fathered both these jokers," Brigadier-General Musrgave Malarkey told worried colleagues.
"Of course the DNA evidence is utterly damning."
