President Niyazov of Turkmenistan has ordered the construction of a palace made of ice in the heart of his desert country.
'Let us build a palace of ice,' said President Niyazov.
13 years ago
This President Niyazov sounds like quite an interesting person. I would love to here some poetry in his honour.
Images of an ignorant version of
are playing before my mind's eye.
Ever feel like he does this to amuse us, personally?
I heard he's building this big ice palace in a hole where he kills snakes, sells wedding dresses on ebay, and does animation about badgers.
Okay, wrong thread for this, people, wrong thread. Please look in the sidebar for the proper repository for Turkmenbashi-related information. Now move along, nothing to see here...
Trying to put an ice palace in the desert is like trying to put "love of neighbor" into modern American Christianity.
OH NO. now what? two turkmenbashi threads! christ! how do we handle this? I'M CONFUSED!!! bees, where are you? this calls for its own poem. before my head explodes.
No, NO! This is my place to write verse without bees making me look bad. Um, lessee... Turkmenbashi! *doo doo dee doo-doo* He's a nut! *doo doo dee doo* Turkmenbashi! *deedly doo-doo doody* Likes Pizza Hut! *doodly deet dot doodle*
What if he made it out of
? That's right, I'm all about bringing the visions of crazy heads of state to reality, as long as they're benign visions.
Maybe this is an effort to steal momentum from the other thread so that the Daisy_May one can reach it.
What a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to
derail the original Turkmenbashi thread to let the daisy_may thread reign supreme...or something like that. -Unused dialogue from Shakespeare's MacBeth.
One thread was not enough. The 'Bashi was too tough. His castled ice Was twice as nice. (I wrote this off-the-cuff)
O Turkmenbashi, Please liberate us monkeys From Turkmen-forking.
"The Turkmen mountains are relatively high, but it is hard to imagine the palace remaining frozen without some sort of technical help." Bring that condenser over here, the fecking drawbridge is melting again!
I think what we are seeing here is a brazen attempt by mct to co-opt and control a Bashi thread of his own. Go Bashi-battle threads!
By the things this guy has done I have a hard time remembering he's a president, not a crazy king that this country is stuck with simply beacuse of his last name. He seems slightly out of touch with reality.
Slightly? Slightly?? Turkmenbashi is
more out of touch with reality than any human has ever before achieved!!
Bow before the out-of-touchness of Turkmenbashi!
Zemat, I thought exactly the same thing.
oh god no.
In Ashgabat did Turkmenbashi a stately ice palace decree...
ActuallySettle is doing this to distract us from the fact that HE is Daisy_may's ex-boyfriend.
Karl Rove, eat your heart out.
In the reservoir of heat did Turkemnbashi declare to build his palace of ice The hot air was no barrier to this great feat nor did reality threaten to turn the walls to water. "I have done much crafted golden statues, delivered swollen melons and things as such could only defy belief. Why would a little desert get in the way of such a one like me?" "Let us build a palace of ice, fit for a thousand people. It would be really nice to top it with a golden steeple." In nearby Ashgabat they sat in awe upon hearing the 'Bashi's plans and elsewhere on the Lavender some of 'Bashi's greatest fans typed with strokes of wonderment. There was forking and de-railing and other kinds of merriment. Would there now be two streams to drink of 'Bashi greatness not merely once but twice the chance to sit in wonder at the golden one that gleams and his wonderful palace of ice?
Lower the Bashidome!
Dome of Banya Bashi!
Whee! Bucket o' bashis!
djaaaaayyyyy! tha djinatahhh!
