An estimated 500,000 people have downloaded the insult featuring the words "Why don't you shut up?", generating a reported 1.5m euros ($2m). King Juan Carlos asked Hugo Chavez to "shut up" at a summit in Chile last week after the president said Spain's ex-PM Jose Maria Aznar was a "fascist".

Branded mugs, t-shirts and websites featuring the row are also profitable.

In Venezuela, a group of students who oppose Mr Chavez's government have also been downloading the ringtone, a US newspaper reported.

"It's a form of protest," a 21-year-old student in Caracas told the Miami Herald. "It's something that a lot of people would like to tell the president."

Chavez won the mind game by causing the Spaniard to meltdown like a little kid.


"Shut up" really means "you're right" and "I have nothing constructive to say".

Peace

exactly, it means that the guy had nothing constructive to say. instead of saying something of substance and addressing the issue on an intellectual level, he acted like a child.

chavez won that round.

Chavez was trying to monopolize the affair and cowar people. He deliperately insulted a former prime minister of Spain. he was using that forum to advance comunism in South America andwas cslled on it. How dare someone challenge the the great dictator Hugo chavez! He couldn;t hanndle it! If it had been a citizen of Venesuela, they would have been imprisoned of course.

That is the craziest part about it. At least Chavez has the common decency to not try to send a foreign official to a gulag.
