Fidel Castro Is Still Alive and Has a New Hat: Cuba Releases New Photos

Like a cockroach, Fidel Castro just won't die. After the American press began printing speculative stories about Fidel's relative silence in the past few months, the Cuban government has finally released new pictures of everyone's least favorite retired dictator demonstrating the great feat of being alive.

The photos were released yesterday on CubaDebate.cu and claim to show Castro being interviewed Tuesday by Venezuelan journalist Mario Silva. Castro is shown sporting a new camo bucket hat, a change of pace from his once-favored military-style number. He's also sporting a Puma jacket. Yep, Castro is the guy who denounces Western capitalism while proudly sporting clothing with logos of Western capitalist brands.
