Where in the hell is Hugo Chavez?

The normally voluble Venezuelan president has been missing for nearly a month. The official explanation is that he's recovering from surgery to remove a pelvic abscess in Cuba, but rumors abound.

Is he pissing into the Mississippi to make it flood? Is he hand-delivering Domino's to buddy Muammar Gaddafi in his Libyan handout? Or is he somewhere else bathing in a tub of crude oil?

Keep an eye out this week for more installments in our Where in the World is Hugo? blog series.
