"Now comes this antiquated, militaristic, coarse, repressive attitude on the freedom of women to do what they want with their bodies."

A Venezuelan newspaper editorializes against Hugo Chavez, who was only complaining about the money women spend on breast implants.

The snake DIED! The model is a famous Israeli gal. Her boobs were fake.

What kind of a photo shoot was this going to be, anyway?

Did someone have that snake insured?

The snake probably did not die. Think about it, silicone cannot be that toxic. But it makes a good joke.

I've never liked ole' Hugo, but now this? He's not a boob man!? HE HAS CROSSED THE LINE!

Sometimes Hugo Chávez gives me the impression of having gotten breast implants himself.

Fred4Pres said...

Unless it was a Palestinian snake on a martyrdom mission.

chickelit said...

The freedom of women (people?) to do what they want with their bodies is not the same as the freedom from criticism for the same.

I'm sure Peter would agree.

This is another hard lesson I guess.

It's hard out there for a tyrannical dictator these days, damned hard!

Further confirmation there's something seriously wrong with that guy.

Au contraire. As one who prefers God's handiwork to any plastic surgeon's, 99.999% of the time, I would say Chavez is a pure boob man.

As with so much else in life, size isn't everything. I've met very few boobs I didn't like.

the freedom of women to do what they want with their bodies

I wonder what El Nacional's position is on prostitution. Typically feminists are very against women doing that with their bodies.

The NYT missed it..

Sin Senos no hay Paraíso.

(Without Breasts There Is No Paradise) is a RTI Colombia–Telemundo remake and loose adaptation of the original Colombian series Sin Tetas No Hay Paraíso . The series is based on investigative journalist Gustavo Bolivar's debut novel and features an attractive young prostitute who desires to have massive breast implants in order to attract a rich cocaine smuggler. It is also based on a true story. The series premiered on June 16, 2008;[1] its debut drew 749,000 adults aged 18 to 49, making it one of the network's most-watched premieres ever.

There is also a niche industry based on the telenovela..

Sin Senos No Hay Paraiso.

Every now and again, one is torn between one's hatred of all things evil and admission of the fact that all clocks are correct at least twice a day.

Not too mention the fact that there are some things that are sacred.

Breitbart's site has it up with the video! Model's name is Orit Fox.

She was doing one of these "tongue" KISS imitations. When the snake dove down to her left breast. And, took a bite.

Snake's dead. Per the TV report.

Ooops - here is that link again.

What about all the money women spend on razors?

Ya but only one and he stuck it between his ears.

Peano said...

A boob as big as Chavez is bound to be filled with silicone.

madawaskan said...

What was that stuff* he said about Condoleezza?

Anyone remember that?

They don't call him melonhead for nothing madawaskan!

I knew you'd understand Peter.

JAL said...

Wonder if Chavez thinks it would be easier to be president of China?

There they really have antiquated, militaristic, coarse, repressive attitudes on the freedom of women to do what they want with their bodies.

The Crack Emcee said...

I'm no fan of Hugo - he's got a political cult going - but I'm with him on this one:

Women, cosmetics, and their boobs are a joke.

LOL! Perfect.

This blogpost is brought to you by Hugo Chavez' brother, Argenis.

Lgbpop said...

Ol' Hugo is the biggest boob in Venezuela - no matter he doesn't want competition.

I must agree with him, though, when it comes to feminine pulchritude I find the southern hemisphere more interesting and scenic.

Snake's dead

Chlamydia.

Revenant said...

I find it incredibly unlikely the snake died of silicone poisoning, as funny as that would be.

ken said...

Baloney- Monkey Boy Chavez is full of kaka. My friend from Venezuela asserts that Hugo was bribing poor women to vote for him by offering free implants from the state.

And why is it that so many Miss Universe winners are from Venezuela?

THey've gotten better, but plastic surgeons still haven't found a way to make a natural big breast. They're always too round on the top.
So in this one case I'm with Hugo. Better a girl with a flat chest than big fake boobs.Though, I won't complain about big natural boobs.

BANG.

They're big in Europe. Worked on some advertising concepts for one of the makers about a year ago.

Sheepman said...

Hate to say it, but Chavez is right. I was recently in Columbia and lots of women, including teenagers, have had very obvious breast implants. Even the mannequins have large breasts .

lemondog said...

With oil revenues in decline, breast augmentation may likely be Venezuela's leading industry.

Advertisement suggestion: Hugo knows boobs.

Snake succumbed from the biting of the LEFT breast. Silicon poisoning was secondary.

El Nacional is a left wing diary. The newspaper was founded by a millionaire as a toy for his stalinist son: Miguel Otero Silva winner of the Lenin Peace Prize http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miguel_Otero_Silva

The paper was said to be financed by the Soviet Union.
It is the equivalent of the NYT, same kind of target , same kind of writers.
They supported Chavez ´s coup in 1992. Even if the editor in chief of the time, a former guerrillero and latter a member of Chávez cabinet, was a supporter of free market reforms. They broke withe the government when the wife of the editor in chief ( the son of MOS)was made a subordinate of his former employee( the mentioned editor).
In Venezuela, 75% of lawyers are women( 90 % of current students)More than 60% of graduated from high school. Also 60 % of physicians. 70 % of judges.But still Miss Venezuela pageant is the most viewed program of the years. Its the Super Bowl equivalent, mostly watched by women.Beauty care products are the top priority , people ( menn and women) rather go with hunger than without personal care.
Plastic surgery is wide spread.In privates universities you wont find a woman without breast implants. Even in public universities it is common to see scenes like in Clueless with a dozen women with nose jobs in line.
Two of my alumni died after cosmetic surgery( one for liposuction, her third in a year, and a the other because he has his stomach with a clamp that got loose)
Chávez mother, once a poor woman who left her mother in law rise Chavez because the family income was not enough to support 5 children and now the richest woman in her hometown, had at least three cosmetic surgeries. Been rich is bad according to Chávez, but for others.
Anyway, the implants are an investment, as american studies had say , beautiful people is richer than ugly one.
On prostitution: El Nacional has supported ONGs fighting for prostitutes( including transexuals) rights against harassment by the police. In Venezuela prostitution is legal, they even has medical certificates given by the government. But soliciting in the street was a misdemeanor until 1996 , and the police still harass them, specially transexuals and gays

Chavez himself singing

Singing before meeting with Dudamel who direct Los Angeles oorchesta:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htK2EYcKH94

Some years ago in a " cadena", a broadcast by all radio and tv station , before Saint Valentin, he said to
his , now ex, wife( with breast implants) that : "te voy a dar lo tuyo" i will give you what is your (He see himself as a gift)

Clyde said...

I generally find Chavez to be a buffoon, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day. Hugo's got half-a-clock going. I much prefer the look of natural breasts, of whatever size. Fake ones, especially ostentatiously large ones, just don't look right.

lemondog said...

In Venezuela, 75% of lawyers are women( 90 % of current students)More than 60% of graduated from high school. Also 60 % of physicians. 70 % of judges.

Why so lopsided?

Assume it is primarily the middle-class and wealthy that attend school. Do males goes into whatever the family business rather than go to school?

Belkys said...

Men go to engineering or to work or No there is no MBA here but a pale imitation of it.
Nop, medical school is a family business and a poor people way out of poverty.
Most graduated are women in public, privates schools.My family 3 women : one mechanical engineer, one lawyer and university professor( studied on a scholarship), a sociologist ( runs the pharmacy of a clinic) studies paid by the one with the scholarship. Universities are free, The money is for food and books.
The only male was a taxi driver until married a lawyer that got him a job as the family fussiness .
manager
Law, journalism, architecture and industrial engineer are seen as women careers. And all but law are deemed as a gay´s profession

Belkys said...

And around 80% of families are rides by women without a partner. Around half out of the wedlock , the other half divorced.
Another weird statistic, out dated but: while 60 % of physicians are women only 40 % working physicians are women . In a snap day only 20%. So they got the diploma as an insurance policy or are pregnant or raising kids at the moment
