Because some memes never die...

Update: for the record, no diss at all to Aminatou Haidar. She's a courageous woman and an inspiration to people in the Western Sahara and abroad. Internet foolishness is all.

    Humor is off course something very personal, but writing "I can has referendum" on a picture of Aminatou Haidar doesn't really strike an all time high on my laugh barometer.

    Why the language twist? Aminatou speaks perfect French and Arabic + to my knowledge almost no English. How many languages do you speak?

    And why the mockery with her in particular? I don't get it. A satire about Abdelaziz (either one of them) is perfectly ok since both are sitting on high horses, but Aminatou Haidar?

    That joke is beyond my horizon...

  2. Of course I wasn't trying to make fun of Aminatou Haidar! She's lovely. Reference lolcats.
