whale lovejuice considered essential item in venezuela
almost too funny for words, and an inevitable consequence of letting the government run things.
"Jan. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Whale sperm, pickles and the pain reliever codeine will be considered essential goods in Venezuela and receive a preferential exchange rate under President Hugo Chavezís new currency structure.
Bleach, cheese and whisky have been deemed nonessential. Importers of essential items will pay 2.6 bolivars per dollar, while goods not on that list will get a rate of 4.3 per dollar, according to the governmentís Official Gazette."
the not funny part about the story is the devastating effect of idiotic socialist monetary policy has on a country's ability to function. then there's the whale spooge.
