Friday Funnies: African Dictator Falls and The Internet Has a Meme Field Day


On Wednesday, Robert Mugabe — longtime president (and dictator) of Zimbabwe and current chair of the African Union — fell. Photos of the fall becomes online meme after alleged cover-up attempts

This in and of itself is worth a chuckle, especially since the nonagenarian dictator was fine afterward. But Zimbabwean authorities actually tried to say Mugabe didn’t actually fall he just tripped and managed to catch himself.

Photographers were reportedly forced to delete the images, but it was too late. The INTERNET had them now and the hashtag #MugabeFalls was quickly populated with fantastic Photoshopped works of art.

And some of the creations are just spectacular.
