Overheard in Havana

– Let’s see, refresh my memory: Why did we pick Maduro to run Venezuela?

– Because he’s a graduate of Ñico López.

– Yeah, but still, why is he such a moron?

– Because he’s a graduate of Ñico López.

– And what was the idea behind all this?

– Remember that phrase Roosevelt used to say about Somoza? Maduro might be a son of a bitch and an imbecile, but he’s our son of a bitch and our imbecile.

– But Roosevelt never said “imbecile.”

– We can consider that part our contribution to the phrase.

– Yes, but we’ll have to give it a Martíesque twist. Something along the lines of “he’s our banana son of a bitch and if he turns out to be an imbecile, he’s our son of a bitch.”

– Or to be more concise: “Our son of a bitch is an imbecile but he’s ours.”

– Something like that.
