    And to think that just a few years ago DumbAss Dilma wanted a permanent seat on the UN because she considered Brazil the equivalent to a first world, western country.

    Full of MIB d's 'heroes' (MenInBlack dresses) sitting on untold wealth kept for their own use and shagging everybody they can, irrespective of sex and age.

    Perfect match!
