Oh, Gaddafi...

Today's Peninsula tells us all about the "bold and honest address" His Highness Sheikh Hamad gave at the Arab Summit yesterday before turning the event over to Mu'ammar Gaddafi.

It doesn't tell us, however, that Gaddafi responded with a fat joke.

Ah well. As Gaddafi's hilarious gaffes go, this one is at least better than bragging that he is "the imam of the Muslims"... to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques. (Needless to say, King Abdullah is not attending the summit!)
