I warn you: this is not a joke. The current minister of the "Popular Power" for Foreign Affairs, Elías Jaua, answered with the most incredible thing to opposition leader Henrique Capriles, who was complaining about the huge shortages Venezuela is going through. Jaua said:
|If you feel like using one like this you are a traitor of your fatherland|
"Do you want fatherland or toilet paper?"
Jaua said "fatherland" means to go to the supermarket and have enoug money to buy the necessary products. Apparently, toilette paper and the other products Venezuelans lack now are not necessary. And apparently, Venezuela is the only country where you have to choose between toilette paper or having money to "buy the necessary things".
I am speechless.
