He was from Gabon

Omar Bongo, President for Life
1932 - 2009

Yes, Africa's longest serving Big Man has toddled off. The diminutive dictator (five foot on a good day in his trademark Cuban heels) leaves behind 30 children or so, a killer Stutz limousine, and a simultaneously oil-rich and impoverished nation.

What his death really, does, from our parochial POV, however, is provide yet one more opportunity to ref the greatest moment in modern television.


  1. I could watch that on a non-stop loop until I passed out from laughing and when I came to, I would start it over.

  2. Love that clip. Watched it ten times this morning. THank you!
