I thought it's a piece in The Onion and had to look twice, but no, it's from HuffPost:
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is known for his devotion to late leader Hugo Chavez and now he acknowledges that he sometimes sleeps in the mausoleum where his mentor's remains are kept.I can understand the devotion thing and the attraction to the grave, the fact that it was hitherto limited to canine members of human families notwithstanding. But the next part really excited me:
During the campaign for the April 14 election he narrowly won, Maduro caused a furor when he said Chavez came to him in the form of a little bird that flew around his head.The bird clinches the story, because one can easily guess which one it is:
I can't see any special problem with the old Hugo reincarnated as that bird. Technically, nothing is to prevent the bird from carrying his brain, and it's colorful enough to preserve the tradition.
Only one thing should bother Mr Maduro: that parrot surely could peck and it surely could bite. So he should watch out and not fall asleep during his nightly vigils near the stiff. A few pecks to his head, and long suffering Venezuelans will be up for some unusual decrees, I am afraid...
