Dopey Mexican Girl Fasted For 16 Days In Bid For Invitation To Royal Wedding

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 19-year-old Mexican woman who fasted for 16 days in a bid for an invitation to the royal wedding of Prince William has finally been granted her wish.

Estibalis Chavez will be flown to London for the April 29 nuptials thanks to an anonymous benefactor, according to the Mexico daily, Milenio.

Chavez camped out in front of the British Embassy in Mexico City in February, refusing to eat, although officials at the embassy had told her she was fasting in vain."

I hereby nominate Estibalis Chavez for the title of the Most Clueless Person in the World. Chavez makes Paris Hilton look like a Rhodes Scholar, and Lindsay Lohan look like a Nobel Prize winner.

Mexico is beleaguered by violence and poverty, residents live in continual fear of the drug cartels. Why isn`t this foolish young woman fasting for an end to the drug violence? Chavez is making a mockery of Ghandi, and other peace activists who have fasted for noble causes.

The anonymous benefactor isn`t a friend of Mexico or the UK, he`s bringing unwanted attention to Mexico and an unwanted visitor to the UK.
