Venezuela's Vice-Ministry of the Supreme Social Happiness of the People

When your humble scribe clicked through to this Greg Weeks post entitled "Vice-Minister of the Supreme Social Happiness of the People" I thought it was some sort of joke or riff title. But no, it's straight true, the government of Venezuela has created a new vice-ministry, that's its name and its job is indeed to promote supreme social happiness amongst the country's people.

I am not making this up.

Have these people no sense of history? Or irony?
