Hugo Chavez Names New Cell Phone After Slang for Male Anatomy

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.
