Malodorous Dictator: 'I Don't Stink'

Anyone willing to get close to this thug to do the sniff test?

I didn't think so.
Leftist President Hugo Chavez has called on Venezuelans to stop singing in the shower and limit their wash to just three minutes.

The plea comes as it was revealed the country is having problems supplying water and electricity to its citizens.

Venezuela has suffered several serious blackouts in the past year because of rapidly growing demand and under-investment, which has been aggravated by a drop in water levels in hydroelectric dams that provide most of its energy.

Chavez announced energy-saving measures and said he would create a ministry to deal with the electricity shortages.

Calling for water conservation, he said low rainfall caused by the El Nino weather phenomenon meant water levels were critically low in the El Guri reservoir, one of the world's largest dams.

'Some people sing in the shower, in the shower half an hour. No kids, three minutes is more than enough. I've counted, three minutes, and I don't stink,' he said during a televised Cabinet meeting.

'If you are going to lie back, in the bath, with the soap and you turn on the what's it called, the Jacuzzi ... imagine that, what kind of communism is that? We're not in times of Jacuzzi,' he said, to laughter from his ministers.

He mentioned using planes to try to force rain from clouds and said the government would soon publish a decree prohibiting imports of low-efficiency electrical appliances.
It can only be a matter of time until his buddy Obama begins outsourcing our electricity to help his pal.

Hot Air links. Thanks!
