You have to feel a bit sorry for the guy who follows in Hugo Chavez’s footsteps. Over the years, the late Venezuelan President made for prime billing at the U.N.—most memorably in 2006 when he claimed, following a day after a speech by then U.S. President George W. Bush, that the podium “still smells of sulfur.” Maduro, a Chavez acolyte, has little of El Comandante’s charisma and clings to his deceased predecessor’s legacy, image and fashion sense for his own legitimacy. But a Maduro speech could indeed be interesting for other reasons—he is notoriously gaffe-prone. One example: when invoking a Biblical parable during a recent address, he slightly misspoke, which proved very unfortunate in Spanish. “To multiply ourselves like Christ multiplied the penises —sorry, the fish—and the bread,” he said.
