Female rapists target hitchhikers in Zimbabwe

It isn’t bad enough that the African country that used to be the bread basket of Africa is now the basket case of Africa.   It isn’t bad enough that it takes a trillion or so Zimbabwe dollars to buy a loaf of bread.  It isn’t bad enough that the place is run by a delusional octogenarian megalomaniac and no one seems able to pry the guy out of his position of power.

Now we have this strange story out of that benighted place:

DETECTIVES investigating a spate of kidnappings and sex attacks on male hitchhikers by female rapists have made three arrests.

Police seized 31 used condoms with semen after a chance breakthrough when a suspect vehicle was involved in an accident in Lower Gweru.

More than a dozen attacks, thought to be for ritual purposes, have been reported mainly in the Midlands and Masvingo provinces. A few more attacks have been reported in Harare and Mashonaland West.

Oh, man the lines just flow in reaction to that story, don’t they.  It’s just that most are unprintable.

I’m just imagining the sudden volume of police volunteers for undercover (oh, no, that’s just too easy) work on this one.

“Please, commissioner, it is time I did my fair share and took on some of the burden of undercover police work”.

Yup, you can hear it now. 

And hitchhiking?  For guys, it’s the new national sport.

I’ll leave it to you folks to come up with the lines – but remember, this is a “safe for work” blog.   Have fun, but keep it that way, please.
