The World Famous (but all too infrequent) If I Had A Minute To Spare Global Caption Competition of Death and Love

Yes, it has been a while, but fortunately you may all rest easy, the World Famous If I Had A Minute To Spare  Global Caption Competition of Death and Love has returned, this time with a cherry on top. They cherry, you ask, is an  extra caption to be competitive about.

They’re at it again, those pesky Europeans, kissing in public. Benneton’s add compaign almost coming through here with a picture of Nicholas Sarkozy and Angela Merkel about to make their better halves a little upset.

So, if you could, a caption please:

 

As always, the winner of the competition will get a free subscription to If I Had A Minute To Spare and a pat on the back from me.

May the best caption win!!!

It’s an all-Africa edition. I’m just as fascinated by South Sudan’s sovereignty as I am by Cairo’s protests.

Egypt Rises Up:

For some in the West, which has tended to put stability above democracy in its dealings with the Middle East, these developments are disturbing. Now that the protests have sucked the life out of Mr Mubarak’s regime, they argue, the vacuum will be filled not by democrats but by chaos and strife or by the Muslim Brothers, the anti-Western, anti-Israeli opposition. They conclude that America should redouble its efforts to secure a lengthy “managed transition” by shoring up either Mr Mubarak or someone like him.


Listen! The Pharaohs Are Laughing!

Protests continued unabated in Cairo January 31, as thousands marched to demand the resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarek.

KAL's Cartoon, 07-08-10This week’s editorials admonish the various culprits, i.e., President Sarkozy, IPCC, justly. I chose the quickest summary of the East Anglia emails scandal conclusions because brevity accentuates how ridiculously tedious the slander campaign really was. But, The Economist missed a chance to admonish another culprit in every case: US. I mean, how long can readers of The Economist, for one, persist in such blithering naivete? I can forgive non-subscribers. But, most educated readers with at least two years of elementary school on their resume should know the difference between the bluster of public life and the earnestness of the private.
