I am Hugo Chavez and You will not Watch the Family Guy in Venezuela – CARACAS VENEZUELA – Once again one of the world’s notorious “bad boy” dictators is off dictating something totally ridiculous to the people of his kingdom  No, it’s not the world’s favorite plastic president Ahmadinejad all of a sudden telling everybody he has a secret nuke factory in the desert.  Nope, not Kim Jong Il threatening to play 4th of July with the nukes he has stored in his secrect bomb bunker eitheer.  But, it just might be that maniacal ruler of Venezuela and he’s telling his people what they can’t watch on his government tv station.

Government officials in Venezuela plan to slap fines on cable television companies that refuse to stop showing America’s favorite cartoon, “Family Guy.”   A chief justice minister spying on America says the program should be banned because it promotes the use of marijuana, alcohol, and the belief that a dog and baby with a football shaped head can talk.  He was most enraged with a recent episode in which Peter went on a crusade to legalize reefer, but he was equally pissed when Peter became a beer taster for Pawtucket Patriot Brewery, and when Stuie talks with that bloody British accent. (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090925/ap_on_re_la_am_ca/lt_venezuela_family_guy)

As a result of such blasphemy, any cable networks that airs the show would be fined by the country’s telecommunications regulator if they refuse to dump the program, then shot by government assassins if they don’t get it the first time.  Chavez himself is preparing to impose new regulations of his own creation.  Among other pathetic rules, cable providers could be forced to carry Chavez’s Sunday speeches, his cooking programs, and public hangings at his jungle hunting lodge.  That is, as long as he’s still able to watch Family Guy in his palace.  Secretly, it’s his favorite show, but allowing the public to watch it would brainwash them with American culture and they’ll be none of that in a Communist country controlled by a dictator who sells oil to America.
