Chilean humour

Michele Bachelet, president of Chile, is among the Latin American leaders finding some levity in the current financial crisis.

“Why has there never been a coup in the United States?” she asked a group of investors.

“Because there is no U.S. embassy in the United States.”
That's Chavez-tastic, Madame President, well played. Gosh, the colonials are sure feeling rebellious these days.
