Hugo A Halloween Hypocrite

At The Cheese, we really like Halloween. KJ is known to have a whole graveyard in his front yard with bones, flashing eyes, and hanging skeletons. Children are afraid to come on his porch to trick-or-treat because KJ has been inside one of the several life sized creatures that surround his porch. So we don't like it when Presidents go dissing one of our favorite days of the year. Leave it to Hugo.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez urged Venezuelan parents not to dress their children in costumes for Halloween, calling it a U.S. custom that has no place in the South American country's cultural traditions.

Of course, the real reason for the anti-Halloween hysteria is probably the anti-government jack-o-laterns: In one odd incident a week ago, authorities found more than a dozen jack-o'-lanterns left in spots around Caracas bearing anti-government messages and what appeared to be bomb-like fuses.

But remember, this is the guy who dresses up his parrot.

And he tells parents to not dress up their children?

What a bafoon.

I wish I had the heart (and the time) this year, KJ. I'd have done gravestones for all of you like I used to do for my boys. We used to do the whole graveyard thing too. I didn't do it this year though :) I wish I could see your decorations.

Great. Another "Do as I say, not as I do" dictator. Which, I guess, goes with the territory, but at least Hitler didn't flaunt his privilege.

I do like the hat, though. On the parrot.

Why do I get the feeling the parrot is in control the Chavez is the dummy?

Because you can see Chavez' mouth moving.
