This time Skipper Hugo of Venezuela has put his thinking cap on about how they can conserve energy and save water...
From The Telegraph UK --
Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan president, has called on his countrymen to stop singing in the shower to help save water and electricity.
The left-wing leader said they should attempt to wash in less than three minutes and breaking into song distract them.
"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.
Getting into his stride, he went on to label baths and jacuzzis anti-communist.
"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. More...
Skipper Hugo is going to create a ministry about the power & water shortages they are experiencing in Venezuela because it is making socialism look bad. Topping it off for solving this crisis he may have airplanes fly into the clouds in attempts to make it rain.
That's about as good as his Socialist Book of the Month Club buddy, then Senator Barack Obama's comments on the campaign trial about how we can save energy here in the U.S....
"There are things you can do individually, though, to save energy. Making sure your tires are properly inflated — simple thing. But we could save all the oil that they’re talking about getting off drilling — if everybody was just inflating their tires? And getting regular tune-ups? You’d actually save just as much!"
Yeah -- and people still voted him!
