Excess Of Weasels – “Non-Aligned” Nations

Courtesy of the summit of the world's worst dictators "Non-Aligned" nations and the photoshoppersshutterbugs at Reuters:

And of course, the real hero of the day:

Leaders of developing countries started two days of talks in Havana without Cuba’s communist strongman Fidel Castro, whose convalescence kept him away from the spotlight he cherishes.

Each photo reminds me of the line by Cary Grant in the movie North By Northwest. But especially the last.

"Now there's a picture only Charles Adams could draw."
