Chavez: "I'm please to have such a well known celebrity as Bill Cosby come and visit our beautiful country."

Pat Robertson: "Holy Crap, it's twofer night."

(OK so it fit the castro/chavez picture better)
(should've been 'pleased' in the last caption)

Chavez becomes the latest victim to fall for the Reverend's "Vaseline handshake."

Posted by: Hoodlumman at August 31, 2005 10:39 AM

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is frozen solid as the soul of his lifeform is slowly sucked from his person.

Posted by: Hoodlumman at August 31, 2005 10:51 AM

Actually, Rodney, I liked the "please" version just fine. Sort of authentic-sounding.

Posted by: Will Franklin at August 31, 2005 10:55 AM

Hugo Chavez choked on his breathe, briefly losing concentration. As Reverend Jackson's firm left hand slowly crawled up his leg, he tried focusing on the handshake and the eyes. The eyes. Why were they so alluring, and why was here?

Posted by: Tom at August 31, 2005 11:21 AM

While Jackson distracted Chavez with time-tested ploy of, "One, two, three, four, I declare thumb war!", he managed to lift his wallet with his free hand.

Posted by: bullwinkle at August 31, 2005 12:16 PM

Jesse Jackson gives Hugo Chavez the Rainbow Coalition ultimatum grip!... Hugo looks as if he isn't really sure about the translation of what this really means!...Way to go Jesse!...Get the dictator where it hurts!...

With the full support of Jessie Jackson, Hugo Chavez tries unsuccessfully to blow the winning bubble in the 'Hubba Bubba Chicle De Globo Espectacular.'

President Chavez sat shocked, upon learning of the Reverends intention of filing charges for Reparations damages for Venezuelas past role as a slave trading port.

Posted by: Darius at August 31, 2005 01:10 PM

Hugo Chavez was left speechless monday upon learning that the Reverend Jesse Jackson was indeed an agent of the Russian Federation.

Posted by: Darius at August 31, 2005 01:17 PM

Hugo wanted a kiss... But... Jesse wasn't even going there!... A hand shake instead of a kiss! Hmmmm... Is it my breath? Hugo wondered...

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at August 31, 2005 05:48 PM

"In a world with ever fewer socialist dictators to worship, Rev. Jesse Jackson turns his attention to "democratically" elected "President" Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, much to Mr. Chavez' surprise."

Posted by: Giacomo at August 31, 2005 05:50 PM

Humor gone wrong (I should be good at this.)
Jackson: ". . . let me 'splain it to ya Lucy."
Chavez: "Guards! arrest this man."

Who is the portrait of in the background?...

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at August 31, 2005 06:30 PM

"I hereby install Rev. Jesse Jackson as my vice-president. This is my best insurance against assassination."

Jessie to Hugo: "Steal my haircut will you mofo?!"


"Oooooooh, Jessie shakes like a girl!"

Posted by: prairie biker at August 31, 2005 08:04 PM

Who is the portrait of in the background?...
Michael Jackson

Posted by: Rodney Dill at August 31, 2005 08:29 PM

Of course it is!... Oh Rodney! you are such a brat to think of Michael Jackson with that outfit and all!... OR were you thinking of Jesse's love child?

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at August 31, 2005 09:03 PM

Hugo's face was locked in horror, after Jesse Jackson told him that even now American troops were invading. That was when Casto burst in the back door with Aston Krutcher and yelled, "Suprise, you socialist biotch! You've been punk'd."

Posted by: Rob B. at August 31, 2005 11:14 PM

"Why yes, Mr. Jackson, I will marry you!"

Zsa Zsa: That's the portrait of Simon Bolivar

Is it legal in Venezuela for two people of the same sex to get married?...

Hugo congratulates Jessie after his win in the Ms. Venezuela Pageant.

Posted by: Hoodlumman at September 1, 2005 07:48 PM

I guess it is if the dictator says so.

Posted by: kyber at September 2, 2005 01:05 AM

Never one to miss an opportunity for a good gag, Rev. Jesse Jackson introduces Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez to that old American favorite, the joy buzzer.

Posted by: Mr. Right at September 2, 2005 10:41 PM

HA ha! ... Good one Mr.Right!

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at September 4, 2005 08:45 AM

As the Reverend Jesse Jackson (L) and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Frias shake hands, Jackson's posteriorly concealed left hand suggests a augmentation in international relations.

Posted by: nicole at September 4, 2005 04:00 PM

My how soft your hands are! It's Palmolive, you have been soaking in it!... Dishwashing liqid??? Oh my!

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at September 4, 2005 04:50 PM

Jackson: You have really soft hands, Mr. Chavez. Do you moisturize?

Chavez: Would somebody call security?

Posted by: oregano at September 4, 2005 11:52 PM

And then with the customary overly firm handshake, the "Quien Es Mas Macho" contest began.
