Stripper in Cake for Suu Kyi – A Mistake

Rangoon. What was supposed to be a lighthearted attempt to celebrate the imprisoned opposition leader’s 65th Bithday turned sour when attempts to smuggle a male stripper in a large birthday cake into Aung San Suu Kyi’s  compound was uncovered by Burmese security officials. Su Kyi’s supporters admitted they had “badly overestimated” the recent softening of the Junta’s position.

Dozens of armed police set upon the the cake with clubs. The condition of the performer inside is unknown.

Suu Kyi released a statement through a UN visitor saying, “A card would have been fine.”

    I think the junta were acting pre-emptively, fearing the stripper may have eventually revealed his truncheon.
