No – no. You deny slaughtering the cows in the first place, accuse those of saying so of trying to derail the democratic process. You then blame apartheid for not having any milk and ask the world for aid.

And if it did, is it still called a zebra crossing?

Nope, it is called a Koala crossing, but sometimes it can be called a Wombat crossing. :)

Don't get me started on blooming wombats! Here I was thinking wombats are these cute cuddly little things...until I saw them at the Koala sanctuary

THE ZIMBABWE MODEL:

You have two cows.

They took fourteen generations of careful breeding to produce the top milking cows of the decade.

You barbeque them.

You chop the farmers up who successfully bred them over half a century.

Half the population end up starving later.

You refuse to let any dignitaries in to check on the situation, blaming it all on the "colonialists"
