Time for a little news of the weird. Occasionally a genuine fruitcake arises in world leadership, who basis his leadership not on actual results but on magic and sorcery. The tiny west African nation of Gambia has elected just such a fruitcake.
President Yahya Jammeh has announced that he can cure diseases. Specifically, asthma and AIDS (they’re quite similar apparently).
How does he cure AIDS? It’s a three-day course of secret herbs and spices, taken orally and applied to the skin. Call it the KFC cure.
Apparently after the treatment some patients have “gained weight” and “shown improvement.” Also, during the treatment some patients “can be going to the toilet every five minutes.” I suppose we shouldn’t be skeptical… but then again, I really think we should.
