A head-of-state catfight? Well, almost: at the Ibero-American summit in Chile this weekend, Spain's King Juan Carlos told Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez to "shut up," reports the BBC News. The King lobbed the insult (exact words: "porque no te callas") after Chavez called former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar a "fascist" and kept interrupting the current Spanish Prime Minister. Later, at another event, Chavez shot back, "He might be King, but he can't shut me up." The sad thing: the theme of the conference was "social cohesion". Oh well, maybe next year...
