According to the Sudan Tribune, Idriss Deby (of Being-President-of-Chad fame) is engaged to marry the daughter of Darfur strongman Musa Hilal (of Being-A-Big-Janjaweed fame). Word is Deby paid a brideprice amounting to a whopping $26 million US.
Given the history of the region, including Chad’s involvement in the Darfur conflict, this development obviously raises some important questions. Chief among them: What to buy the happy couple as a wedding gift?
Fear not, readers, we’re on it. Our annotated Deby/Hilal wedding registry is here:
- A Battle Tank
Brought to our attention by CBlatts’s attempt to find “the most expensive thing on Amazon,” the JL421 Badonkadonk (no, really) apparently has a bitchin’ sound system.
- A Relaxman Relaxation Capsule
To relax in after a rough day rocking out in the battle tank, obviously.
- Some uranium ore
Mahmoud Ahmedinejad wishes he were getting married so he could register for this too.
- A Le Creuset casserole dishSelf-explanatory. It’s a wedding.
