Update: Chavez Puts Time Change Plans on Hold

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Contest? Most retarded Hugo Chavez declarations?

I sense something happening, in the comment thread. It's as if a million morons suddenly cried out as one.

...

In a stunning announcement, Venezuelan Dictator President Hugo Chavez has postponed his decision to change the nation's clocks by a half hour on Monday so that "children would have an extra half hour of daylight to go to school".

Venezuelans seemed a little confused about what they were expected to do. Chavez himself seemed confused, initially instructing them all to move their clocks forward a half hour, even though to achieve the stated objective, you would have to move your clock back.

Chavez had said the shift would allow children to wake up for school in daylight instead of before sunrise, but acknowledged that some people might claim he was crazy.

Crazy?

Crazy like a fox.

When you are confronting the imperialist United States time zone hegemony (and we all know the real reason for daylight savings time, don't we?), you can't show weakness.

Chavez has dismissed criticism that moving the time only a half hour was quirky, questioning why the world had to follow a scheme of hourly divisions that he said was dictated by the imperial United States.

UPDATED: Chavez reveals more secret plans in the comments section:

2 I hearby also decree that, henceforth, all Venezuelan rivers will now flow upstream, as opposed to the usual downstream, as dictated by the imperial United States. Posted by: Hugo Chavez at September 24, 2007 03:32 PM (IHbof)
