This is big, Mac

October 10, 2008

If you didn’t think Hugo Chavez was a menace to the world before, this will surely change your mind:

The Venezuelan government has ordered all McDonald’s restaurants in the country closed for 48 hours for what it calls irregularities in the fast-food chain’s financial books.

The order stands for Thursday through Saturday, affecting all 115 McDonald’s restaurants nationwide, the state-run Bolivarian News Agency reported.

No Big Macs for 48 hours. How much more brutal can it get?

    “irregularities in the fast-food chain’s financial books”, what, they were making money ?

    Seems like the next logical step here too, after nationalizing the Banks & Insurance Industry, doesn’t it? Hugo loves him some Obama, and by January, if you believe the polls, we’ll have pretty much the same governmental model as Venezuela. Nobody will be self employed anymore and we’ll get to keep 20% of our paycheck but hey, everything else will be provided for us! Thanks Uncle Sam!
