Department of Stopped Clocks

When the man's right, he's right:

President Hugo Chavez railed against a new trend in beauty-conscious Venezuela, giving girls breast implants for their 15th birthday.

"Now some people think, 'My daughter's turning 15, let's give her breast enlargements.' That's horrible. It's the ultimate degeneration," Chavez said late on Sunday on his weekly TV show that lasted a record eight hours.
As with a stopped clock, Ol' Hugo is right twice: "Chavez, who happily describes himself as ugly, may struggle to change Venezuelans' mind-set to spending on plastic surgery."
