Even a crocodile wouldn't kidnap 3 women for a decade.

Okay to avoid association with one of the worst presidents in recent US history, bushes shall require a name change.

First. Didn't know Germany had a problem with Cuba. Second, The Cuban missile crisis was 50 farking years ago. Get over it already.

As to the first point, well Germany was split in two once over that whole communism schtick, might be a tad sensitive about that.  As for the second point, absolutely correct.  Thus my point about the Cleveland kidnapper, because if someone asked me to name an evil Castro, Fidel is not really the first that comes to mind.

The votes are in and the kids have decided to rename Fidel "The Washington Redskins".

Rename the alligator "Fidelio".

It's an opera by Beethoven.

Is Pol the Potbelly Pig going to be renamed, too?

Che the pig is not amused

/Che Guevara as a youth was nicknamed "Chancho" (pig) because of his bathing habits (or lack thereof) and the fact that he proudly wore a "weekly shirt" - ie, a shirt he changed once a week. All through his life people commented on his smelliness (though obviously not to his face once he had the power to execute people on a whim).

Probably, same with Coon the Raccoon.

Which Castro? If it was due to Arieal, I guess I'll OK with that.

I thought naming a crocodile was the dumbest thing I'd ever heard.

Then they did it twice.

/Although, if you're going to name an animal who doesn't even know he has a name, twice, Fidel is as good a name as any.
//The experience is probably similar to dealing with the real Fidel nowadays..
//Hey Fidel...(crickets)
//Yo' Fidel my man...(crickets)
///Maybe that's not his name anymore...
////Hey, El Presidente for Life!...(crickets)

I had a friend who had a cat named Castro.
