Zimbabwe isn’t having fun

I have to admit: I was half-asleep, which isn’t the best condition to understand what’s being said even if it’s without a British accent. But I’m pretty sure that the BBC World Service introduced one of its segments this morning with:

No Fun for Zimbabweans

I don’t know if I’ll be able to find a transcript, or even an audio recording of it — I’ve got no proof. But damn, that’s a stupid headline. “No Fun”? Yeah, that’s what I always say when the democratic process of a country is endangered. “Gosh, this is no fun.” Presidents-for-life are just a buzzkill. Kidnappings and assault on the opposition party are such a downer.

Obviously it’s “no fun” — but it’s so far beyond “no fun” that it’s pretty insulting to say that.
