Fidel on Wheels

Fidel on Wheels

Breaking: Fidel Castro is not dead. But he recently sat on a chair with wheels. What does this mean? We have no idea. Though experts tell us that Castro will likely die. Sometime. Eventually. Because he is mortal and pretty damn old.

The photos show Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega meeting with Fidel in both April and December 2009 and were published on three leftist Nicaraguan news sites today.

The Miami Herald describes it as a "hospital-type chair." Other photos from what is likely the same day show Castro standing in front of the chair with little support.
