The Weekend Desk Report

By Natasha Julius

We're gonna knock this one out pretty quickly. We've got scabbards to count.

Market Watch
Supply-side Economics took a kick in the pants this week as, despite constant activity, production simply couldn't keep up.

As Olympic organizers gather to choose the site of their 2016 Homecoming, their choices for King and Queen are looking decidedly glum. If Mr. Popularity decides to give the party a miss, it's down to Dimples, Sloppy Joe and that new kid nobody really knows much about. It's a tough call, but we're guessing Dimples gets the nod. At least he seems to give a shit.

Moby Dicked
Now that we've gotten to know New Kid a little better, he seems to have a whale of an image problem on his hands.

Free Rajoelina!
The Weekend Desk is outraged that the world's foremost celebrity dictatorship troika was barred from addressing the UN General Assembly this week. Seriously, we get to hear these clowns ranting all day, and Gaddafi didn't even bother to rig his own election. Rajoelina is wholesome, healthy and, dammit, they know how to have a good time. Let them speak!

Clear and Present Danger
Finally this week, the Rajoelina snub may yet turn out to be prophetic. Our sources indicate an influential taste-maker is searching high and low for a public figure who's not afraid to trample the odd civil liberty. Add a rapidly-maturing youth insurgency and we could be looking at another Malagasy political overhaul. But is the isolated island nation - and indeed the world - ready for Mitylia?
