News For Everyone to Enjoy In Moderation, Under Very Specific Guidelines

On couch, eating pizza, Qaddafi "ready for your apology"

"Say it like you mean it," Qaddafi insisted as he poured himself a fresh glass of soda.

As Colonel Qaddafi’s forces close in on the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, Saif al-Islam has triumphantly declared that the war will be over within 48 hours–although he wasn’t able to say just how many days that would be because, well, it’s not his job to worry about dividing the number 48 by 24. “In 48 hours we will have finished our military operation,” Saif said, continuing “We are at the gates of Benghazi.” The last bit was largely inspired by a scene in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers–the second installment of the franchise–when Saruman’s forces storm the fortress gates at Helm’s Deep. The film was playing at an incredibly high volume in the background throughout the entire duration of the interview. But, anyhow, Saif, the son of Muammar Qaddafi–the selfless servant of the Libyan people–really might be onto something, because by the looks of it the government is making pretty good progress against rebels.

What was particularly interesting–apart from Saif’s suffocatingly tight turtle neck sweater— was his demand that French President Nicolas Sarkozy “repay Libya the money he took for his election campaign. We financed his election campaign…We helped him become president so that he would help the Libyan people but he has disappointed us…” To his credit, Saif did appear to be at least mildly disappointed, although the emotional response of disappointment is fairly new to him so it looked a bit forced.

The emotional interview was disrupted, however, by a certain man wrapped in cappuccino-colored fabric–reclined on the couch just a few feet behind Saif and just about 4 slices of pizza deep into a 16 slice extra large pepperoni/mushroom combo–who was in the middle of sneering “Tell them I’m waiting for an apology,” when a sizable, chewed up piece of dough dropped out of the corner of his mouth onto the adjacent coffee table.
