bono and tony blair...

...decided to spend another 50 billion dollars on Africa.
Half of the money will be used to ship free food to Africa, thereby making sure that even the last African farmer will put down the rake and stop cultivating land because he can't sell his produce if food is given away for free next door.
The other half will be used to hire more cleaning ladies, doormen, and janitors for the offices of International Relief Organizations in African cities. Those are the best paid jobs here, so a whole generation of African MDs and MBAs will continue to connect calls and wait tables for UNICEF employees.
The farmers and workers of Africa are turned into beggars and its intellectual elite is turned into servants (and they still don't know it's Christmas time at all).
