Hugo Chavez Finds Life On Mars
HUGO Chavez, keen to appear on the international news cycle, says capitalism might have ended life on Mars. Says the most famous face to emerge from Venezuela since Simón Bolívar shook the gold dust from his beard and declared the natives ripe for the taking:
“I have always said, heard, that it would not be strange that there had been civilization on Mars, but maybe capitalism arrived there, imperialism arrived and finished off the planet.”
Curse Ming the Merciless. Curse him and his ice-cream concessions!
Buoyed by the faces turned in his direction, Chavez feel encouraged to carry on talking:
“Careful! Here on planet Earth where hundreds of years ago or less there were great forests, now there are deserts. Where there were rivers, there are deserts.”
Careful of what? The Earth turning? Stone Age Man? What planet is he on..?
