A fitting end: Castro’s hearse breaks down

The vehicle carrying Fidel Castro’s remains during his funeral parade broke down yesterday. Soldiers had to push it through the streets.

How symbolic! What could be more fitting, given the broken down nature of the antique Cuban state produced by Castro?

There have been plenty of choice comments on Twitter. Here’s the obvious take in the form of an old joke:

NOTHING in Cuba works. Except the prostitutes.

Here’s my favorite:

Even hell doesn’t want him.

I also liked this one:

For anyone who thinks the embargo didn’t work, show them this picture [of the hearse being pushed] and laugh. YES.

And this:

Wish PM Trudeau would have been there to help push.

And finally:

Fidel never got around to “Universal Auto Care.”

Castro wasn’t funny in life. In death, perhaps he will become something of laughingstock.
