VENEZUELA-POLITICS/

Blog Guy, it’s a new year, so that means your budget for setting up fantasy photos for readers has been replenished, right?

fantasy photo berlusconi 220Yes, and Reuters gave me a whopping increase, so this year’s shots should be spectacular. Step right up and spend my money, sir.

Okay, I’m gonna want to see some world leaders doing weird stuff. First, I want the President of Venezuela doing a hand shadow puppet show.

Very creative idea! Here is Hugo Chavez doing a shark attack.

Wow, thanks! Next, I want the Italian Prime Minister pulling on his big rubbery lips.

You’re kind of a strange fellow, aren’t you? Okay, presenting Silvio Berlusconi and his rubbery lips. What next?

fantasy shot ivory 220I want the Ivory Coast President to make his eyes bulge out real good.

Which contender, the old one or the new one?

I’ll take either one.

Okay, here’s the eye-popping Laurent Gbagbo! No other leading blog can come close to offering this kind of entertainment – I’d like to see FaithWorld try this!

My next one involves German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a live jellyfish, a pork chop and some Billy Bob teeth….

I’m sorry sir, there’s a three-shot limit per person. Please leave the tent and make room for the next reader.

In that case, I want to see German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a live jellyfish, a pork chop and some Billy Bob teeth :D

Hugo is clearly giving a speech on the lack of proper decorum in Venezuela. Seriously, can no one hold a teacup properly?

Well I think that more world leaders should be encouraged to do impersonations.
Although I think that Hugo needs to work on his Vulcan ‘live longer and prosper’ greeting.

Silvio clearly does an hilarious Mick Jagger send-up, and President Gbagbo is getting there with his Christopher Walken (or maybe Marty feldman).

Anglea Merkel, I understand, does a great Hillary Clinton – hence the jellyfish and the pork chop.

@Spin – Well, not having seen it in person I’m not exactly sure which is used for what, but I do know the Billy Bob teeth are only for when she does her Al Gore impersonation.

I live near Italy and even there I can stand the Berlusconi’s mafia.
