Happy Halloween, Señor Chavez

Sniff sniff. Can you smell that? ¡Dios mio! It smells a lot like... chocolate candy.

The above words are paraphrased from Hugo Chavez’s speech at the UN, where he suggested President Bush was El Diablo. Bush had been in the building a day earlier, and Chavez claimed he could still smell the sulfur. He even crossed himself.

The silly thing is, Chavez was probably being serious.

A Bush fan I am not, but he’s no Satan. No, the Prince of Darkness listens to cool heavy metal music and has orgies. He rocks!

I know it’s not right to stereotype, but in my experience, Latin people are extremely superstitious. And I mean Latin in the broad sense of Italian, Hispanic, etc.

For instance, why is it images of the Blessed Virgin always appear in those countries?

I’ve known some Latinos who, religious or not, viewed Halloween as an evil holiday, and refused to participate in any way. On October 31st their porch lights are out and they don't answer the door for anyone.

And I thought it was just about kids dressing up as Power Rangers and soliciting free candy!

Like many holidays (holy days, get it?), Halloween was a Pagan festival turned Christian. Doesn’t the holiday’s ultimate acceptance of Christ as its personal savior make it now as acceptable as “Jolly Old Fat Bastard Day” or “Candy From An Anthropomorphic Bunny Day?”

Get over it, you silly, cheap bastards, and make with the goodies. Otherwise, I’ve got a whole can of Barbisol here with your hard-to-pronounce name on it. (That’s what I’d be thinking if I were still a kid.)

ABOVE: Perros del Diablo.

Aunty Belle said...

Bawgs, I did heah that Rove had the WH exorcized.

Bird said...

bah humbug - no great pumpkin has shown up yet tonight - though i've tossed candies down to kids in the street (i am our lady of perpeptual candy, hiding on my balcony).

Latins and Hispanics hmmm... i'm neither. i've got a madre de dios (in the form of our lady of guadalupe) candle on my balcony ALL THE TIME. it's burning bright tonight though. and tomorrow for all souls' day, las dias de los meurtos (sp?)

the lady is big in france too.

and yeah, she's big because the christian church wanted her big - to convert those pagans who believed in the mother goddess. gotta trick 'em somehow into the christian fold.

hey there hell-rovie - i left a message for you on bogs' previous post. you silly - i was messin' with you too!

Pete Bogs said...

karen - that too!

aunt b - wouldn't surprise me... but it would have been done only to mollify the base...

bird - so why hasn't the Catholic church moved on from the Mother Mary thing? stuck in the past, as always...

Aunty Belle said...

Yea! Bird, Me too! Had the Our LAdy of Gaudelupe buring last night--what is we doin' bein' onn the same page, Bird? Scary.

Yup, Bawgs, to mollify the base--well, seems mebbe not--I mean , it was supposed to be a secret--IF (a Big IF, too ) it were done
a'tall.

As fer keepin' Mother Mary front and center--goodness folks, why wouldn't one put Mama right up there? Mama is never past tense, Bawgs.

Aunty Belle said...

Sweet Shoat...how'd ya' make out last night in Seattle?

Hellpig said...

"B" I had a last minute change and went as the troop hating communist sypathizing traitor John Kerry,I was welcomed with loads of candy corn and moonbat pies

Bird LMAO

Aunty Belle said...

Lookin' fer testosterone on the FRONT Porch...c'mon over and enlighten us.

Sanford B. Hines said...

Bush can suck my bitch ass motherfuckers. Lemers.

Thaks you?

Bird said...

oh bogs, why should the catholic church have to move on when so many others don't? hahahaha - like...

pig - get over kerry. who cares? he's a moot point anyway. (though all the talking heads today are rolling in kerry-ism -what swill!).

ab: shockingly, it's no surprise and not scary at all that we are both burning lady candles. we probably disagree on WHY we're burning such candles though - hahaha!

Hellpig said...

Bird I will not get past it,Kerry is the face and leader of the Dem party don't forget he was the '04 Presidential Candidate....That lost for this very reason,you should be outraged that he is going to lose it for the Dems again as one Dem Congressman is quoted as saying today

Wanna see how the troops feel
about Kerry

Pete Bogs said...

hell - Dean is the leader of the Dems... Kerry isn't even running for anything right now... if America is sick of Iraq, do you think they're gonna vote out the people that put us there, or someone who made a misunderstood comment about the war?

Kerry is a distraction that has nothing to do with this election...

the troops should feel akin to Kerry - he was one of them... unlike their asshole commander in chief... what a few troops said about him can't be taken as a concensus... many, many troops hate this war, but are not permitted to speak against it or their commander in chief...

Sanford B. Hines said...

Its good that more troops get killed. This will teach bush a lesson in messing with other peoples affairs. I dont care if troops get killed. I do not know anyone that is a troop. Who cares if more die. Really? Does it matter? I was not resposible for them dying. Keep your eye on the real killa. Bush

Thnks you> slingler?

Bird said...

kerry is not the face and leader of the dem party - that would still be clinton (of whom you seem to be more fond - hahahaha). dean is the head of the party, but clinton is still the leader.

now, tell me, is anyone outraged that bush called and spoke on the rush limbaugh show today? two idiotic peas in a pod.

that's worse than kerry's gaffe.

the whole thing makes me sick - i am just so impressed with the level of debate in this country.

we are in serious trouble.

Pete Bogs said...

bird - Clinton? four more years!!!

good point about the Limbaugh show... why shouldn't Bush call on Rush to apologize to the many Parkinson's victims in this country the way he called on Kerry to apologize to soldiers?

Bush needs to apologize to them for sending them into an ill-conceived war without the equipment or guidance they needed...

Hellpig said...

Bogs not misunderstood or Gaff,it is Kerry has been all along

'71 troops are rapist and murderers

'04 troops are terrorists

'06 troops are uneducated and stuck in Iraq

And Kerry is the face of Dems as is Dean,Pelosi,Rangle,Reed and come Tuesday America will vote accordingly

dems are getting eaten alive on every news show I watch,the only Dem that benefits from Kerry's freudian slip is Clinton she is now the Front running Dem Pres..front runner for the white house...which means victory for the Repubs in '08

And being a traitorous scum bag does not give Kerry the honor of being a VET

No Vietnam Vets wants to be associated with Kerry

Bird you should be sick wait til Tuesday if your side wins then the Country will be sick

Hellpig said...

OH and Bogs our great patriots VOLUNTEERED I know the left somehow thinks they were tricked into defending Democracy but not true

Sanford B. Hines said...

hellpig. YOu born in the US? You sure dont seem like it. You are a "us against them" kind of person. You are a divider. Did you seek professional mental counseling for your problem? I feel sorry for you having so much hate for other people. I have a feeling that you could be a rasist also.

Thnks you? slolths?

Ps - Pete Bogs is a much wiser nicer human. yOu should take lessons from him. YOu would be much happier in life.
