News: In Turkmenistan, personality cult fail…

…or success, considering that this story has been only showing up in international news due to Turkmenistan’s tight media control.

Apparently, after “winning” a race, Turkmenistan’s “President” took a nasty spill after his horse stumbled.  Despite attempts by the government to confiscate all recordings, video footage has gotten out, so you can see the president’s face-plant for yourself.


To quote the Associated Press release of this video, the media hush up raises the excellent philosophical question: “If a president falls off a horse and no one sees it, did he actually fall?”
