There's always room for creative writers, right?
Hugo is just pouting because he's lost his prized
conductor Gustavo Dudamel to the Los Angeles Philharmonic!

Maybe he wasn't the only one who thought this up. Perhaps
a little help from the Dear Leader of North Korea and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

Young men (and not so young men) play the same game in any number of confined spaces: tanks, LAV's, LCAC's, tracks, cars with lock-out power windows, elevators, airplanes, buses, subway cars, movie theaters, etc, etc, etc.

You'd fgure that, given the fact that beans are a staple in the average Venezuelan's diet, that Chavez's minions would have the same capability as the USN.

They have probably lost the ability to smell it as a result of constant over-exposure.

Reminds me of the campfire scene in Blazing Saddles.
