So OTT, It made me smile...

Zoo aside, the 'party' looks incredibly miserable!
Where are the smiles.. the joy? the laughter?
Does he never smile?
and where on earth did the (reported as costing ) million dollars go?
Cant be on cake.. that cant be more than £100 per cake.. can it?!
Unless they were piped with gold, and studded with diamonds?
Perhaps there was some beautiful splendor somewhere else... off camera.. because I cant see where that money went.
91 balloon release ... £30?
Meat - £300?.. in fact no.. the meat was donated
Marquee... £ 500 ?
Masked Dancers.. £150 each?
...is that a million yet.. no ? okay.....
I should really set myself up as a party planner.
I quite enjoy it
I could have put on a nice bash for him.. cut the costs in half, still earn a good wage , supply some great tunes, 'tun up' the vibe a bit, BAN any kinda 'political talk', and everyone's a winner.
Everyone goes home happy.
Mugabe's 'party' looked like a political rally, with some very glum looking faces
I'm VERY disappointed with that balloon release - abysmal! ( btw.. you're meant to set each one free so they 'fill the sky.....)
The entire staging of the event looks unprofessional and cheap
If that 'party' cost any more than £5000, I'd ask for my money back
Brass band? (ahem..very African) costs? for the entire band?... £1000 - let them split it as they will
Dance troop? ( a little messy but enthusiastic ) £1000 - split it as they see fit
Is that a million yet?..
No.. oh well ... perhaps the costs were over inflated
I sure hope so.. otherwise they were robbed
To reach the age of 91 is a great achievement and a blessing for anyone..
that bash looked so lackluster.. even I'm upset about that
I hope he enjoyed it.. but I'll be honest.. he did look seriously grumpy :)
