EXCLUSIVE!! BREAKING NEWS! HUGO CHAVEZ EXTORTS KING OF SPAIN

In a shocking development, President Hugo Chávez Frias of Venezuela was today arrested by Spain's national guard after demanding money from Spain's Head of State, King Juan Carlos de Bourbon.

According to sources, Chávez demanded a sizeable sum of money from the king as damages to repair his hurt feelings due to last year's "why don't you shut up?" incident that marked the end of his absolute dictatorship rule over the Spanish sub-principality of Venezuela. When the king refused him point blank, Chávez became aggressive and had to be restrained by several of the armed security guards on duty.

Chávez is now said to be under lock and key in the royal dungeons, awaiting the Spanish Inquisition. His last words on being dragged away were, "I didn't expect this".
