Castro on Retirement

Now that Fidel Castro has retired, what is he going to do? Here's a "modded" interview of Fidel by Hugh Atkin of Sledge Video:

On Retirement
Fidel Castro: No, retirement plans were never that important to me. I've always figured that the CIA would get me one way or another. Exploding cigars! Can you believe that?

On wealth
Fidel Castro: The Americans always accuse me of corruption ... of stealing money. All lies. However, forty years ago, I did buy a stake in a small company which manufactures miniature Cuban flags.

It's not really a hoax, because it wasn't intended to fool anyone! It is what we in the U.S. call "humor" or our brethren in the U.K. call "humour". In France, the closest translation my be "Jerry Lewis".

Get over it, your reading to much into it (herminius).

Most people understand that this is an incorrect translation just for silliness and fun. The post even tells you so. It's not about cultural view or whatnot, its just about having a laugh.
If you don't believe that, see any of Wierd Al's "interviews" with celebrities. They use the same language but he edits them to make them silly. Just for fun.

"Just because you are fat does not mean you can sing." LOL
