The Humvee Nazi

The moment we’ve all been waiting for is here my friends. America the mighty has struck the authoritarian EPRDF government with a punishment that is going to make direct aid cut “child’s play”. All hell has broken loose for the rulling party, the day has turned pitch dark in the quarters of Meles Zenawi. oh the humanity... where is the justice in this world

US Amb. Vicki Huddleston announced yesterday…oh…I don’t know how to put this… “the US would no longer sell US Humvee military vehicles to Ethiopia"

Thank you, you beacon of democracy, thank you thank you…..you denier of the Humvee.

In the mean time, the EPRDF central committee held an emergency meeting to discuss the looming catastrophe from the Humvee ban.


Top Ten EPRDF solutions to ‘No Humvee for you!’

10. Confiscate the four civilian Hummers in Addis Ababa

9. Returning diasporas (especially from the USA) can only bring in a Humvee to be eligible for our generous duty free privilege.

8. The Homer (my suggestion)

















7. Elephants - they were good enuf for sharpshooters hunting Bengali tigers why can’t the Agazi snipers use them.

6. Al Qaeda (aka ISUZU) - what better way to spite the US than making a truck nicknamed after their arch nemesis the official truck of the Ethiopian army.

5. Who needs Humvees when we’ve got fertilizer?

4. A cart drawn by one horse, one ox, one donkey and one camel. How many horsepowers would that be? (Bereket ‘child’s play’ Simon suggested this one)

3. Wey-ye-yet – a close reminiscent of The Homer but actually exists

2. His Excellency Ato Yaregal Aysheshum - his name says it all (rough translation Mr. He-will-do-it He-won’t-back-out)

1. With all the democracy and development, we will be making Humvees in no time

And the number 0 solution to ‘No Humvee for you!’

0. Get the chinese-made replica and claim the US is STILL backing you.

Wait a minute! We had Humvees? really? Ignore my ignorance but I honestly did not know that. If all these Dedesa prisoners are being rounded up and driven in a Humvee, I don't know what the fuck they are complaining about.

top 10 list was really funny
