Fidel Castro—not a very nice person!—is dead.

It is unclear at this time if he was killed by an exploding cigar lit by JFK’s ghost. I’m going to assume he wasn’t and that he probably died of natural causes. But you know what they say about assume-ing! “It makes asses out of you and me“…

Miami is going to be lit tomorrow.
