What a country
Yahoo! News - Comedian Disarms Good-Humored Gangsters
TIRANA, Albania (Reuters) - A famous Albanian comedian averted a highway robbery by making the bandits laugh, an Albanian newspaper reported.

I had no idea there was such a thing as a "famous Albanian comedian". I guess I am hopelessly provincial. I'm also one of those insensitive clods who, when I hear the phrase "Ethiopian cuisine", I think "empty plates".

It certainly isn't my fault that when a hotel advertises "Continental breakfast", it means they don't serve any. (Well? They leave a handful of dried croissants in a basket in the lobby. C'mon, honestly, do you consider that "serving breakfast"?)

I probably shouldn't try to write at this hour.
