Fidel Castro makes 1st public appearance in 9 months

Fidel Castro Makes Rare Public Appearance In Havana HAVANA, CUBA - JANUARY 08: Fidel Castro, Cuba's former President and revolutionary leader, makes a rare public appearance to attend the inauguration of an art gallery on January 8, 2014 in Havana, Cuba. Castro, who ceded power to his brother Raul Castro in 2008 after falling ill in 2006, has last been seen in public in February 2013 at a National Assembly meeting. The gallery Castro visited is run by Cuban artist Alexis Leyva, aka Kcho. (Photo by Sven Creutzmann/Mambo Photo/Getty Images) HAVANA (AP) - Former President Fidel Castro made his first public appearance in nine months, attending the opening of an art studio in the Cuban capital.

Cuban state television also broadcast video of the encounter on the afternoon news.

He was heard to utter: “burble, PHHHHHT! burble.”

The crowd was ecstatic!

The members of the press were awed!

Meanwhile, back in the land of America, a humble businessman tried to eek out a living and create a job or two. (The members of the press BOOED!).

Doesn’t look like the old commie has much time left and the younger one is saddened. A most appropriate pic.

Fidel has exactly one more noteworthy thing to do.

Wish he’d get to it.

Ha, ha, too true! There isn’t enough air freshener in the world to perfume that old goat Castro, though.
