Hugo Chavez Names New Cell Phone After Slang for Male Anatomy
05/12/2009 - 11:15 ||
Even Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez couldn't keep the smirk off of his face when he announced the debut of the world's cheapest cell phone. At only $15, Chavez boasted that the new phone developed by the government came complete with a camera, internet access, an FM radio and MP3 and MP4 players. But what brought a smile to el presidente's face during the announcement was the phone's name, "Vergatario," which is derived from local Venezuelan slang for "penis."
Chavez made a series of subtle jokes throughout the press conference playing on the slang terminology, such as "Whoever doesn't have a Vergatario is nothing." He then proceeded to shamelessly call his mother from his new penis phone.
Watch the video below and tell us: Do you think it is inappropriate for the phone to reference that special part of a man's anatomy?
