Let Them Eat Cake!


According to Azeri Report (whose tagline happens to be "Because Truth is Freedom") President Aliyev had a birthday on December 24 and to celebrate his birthday, "local executive authorities in Ganja once again descended to new lows in an attempt to earn the approval of the president Ilham Aliyev and his family."

What were these new lows? An enormous cake in the shape of a flower, 48 meters in length to mark the president's 48th birthday, and 11 tons in weight because that's how much a 48 meter long cake weighs. I don't really have a joke ready for this one. I just want to say, that this seems...excessive.
