10 Most Fertile Kosovar Diplomats

During my #NoKosovoUnesco initiative, in which my organization successfully campaigned to keep the narco-state of Kosovo out of UNESCO, I came across some admirable competition. Hashim Thaci may be an organ-harvesting terrorist (sa bukvalno dva prsta cela; look at his tiny nonintellectual forehead) but he has exquisite taste in selecting female diplomats. To show the world that despite doing my duty to protect my country's interests, I can still respect my opposition in a dignified, civil and neighborly manner. Without further ado, an ode to Kosovar Albanian beauty and fertility;

Quote of the Week

"At least half of your income is determined by where you live, which for most people is where you were born. Then about 20 percent is due to the income level of your parents. So, your citizenship plus your parental background explain around two-thirds or even 70 percent of your income. Then, obviously, if I had data for gender, race, ethnicity and other things, which are similarly exogenously “given” to an individual, that percentage would go up, perhaps to more than 80 percent." - Branko Milanović
