Bob Strikes Back
Amidst the gloom in this Sunday Times article predicting increased oppression in Zimbabwe was this highly amusing quote from Mugabe:

"They tell me he's [he was refering to Australian PM John Howard] one of those genetically modified because of the criminal ancestry he derives from," Mugabe said, adding that "criminals were banished to Australia and New Zealand by the British".

This reminded me of another quirky Mugabeism, namely his labeling of Tony Blair's administration as "the gay government of the gay United gay Kingdom."

The man certainly hasn't lost his talent for amusing soundbites.
