Hugo Chavez launches ultra-cheap “penis” phone

Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s president, has become the world’s first country president to launch a mobile phone.

And as if this isn’t weird enough, Chavez gave the phone a funny (or maybe offensive, for some) name: Vergatorio – which is a Venezuelan slang term for… penis.    

Produced by a company that Chavez nationalized, the Vergatorio phone is a low-end model that costs only about $15.

Even so, according to Telegraph.co.uk, the handset features stuff like WAP browser and MP3 player.

Hugo Chavez believes that the Vergatorio phone “will be the biggest seller not only in Venezuela but the world. Whoever doesn’t have a Vergatario is nothing.”

Uhm, right :)

    3)this president is a F#&” communist. and is killing our country and our people…
