Crying Hugo Chavez Exhumes 19th-Century Corpse to Prove Conspiracy Theory
Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez seems to be acting absolutely insane. At least more than usual. He took to Twitter to let the world know he cried tears of joy after seeing the 180-year-old remains of South American hero Simón Bolívar. Chávez had the corpse exhumed with the hopes of somehow proving Bolívar died due to poisoning by Colombian rivals and not through disease. Yes, Chávez literally wept at the sight of the skeleton. Bonkers.
"What amazing moments we have lived tonight! We have seen the remains of the great Bolívar," Chavez tweeted in Spanish when the casket was opened.
