Protesters stormed the presidential compound in Kyrgyzstan on Thursday, seizing the seat of state power after clashing with riot police during a large opposition rally. President Askar Akayev reportedly fled the country and resigned.
The President has not been able to overcome the severe shortage of vowels that has plagued Kyrgyzstan. "It's Y all the time!" claimed one protester. "Y's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'd give my eye teeth for just one decent A, I, O, or U! How much Fryd Chyckyn can one person take?!?"
