Hugo Chavez "Shut Up" Ringtone: Spanish King Juan Carlos a Ringtone Hit

Holiday fluff news of no import doesn't always have to suck. There's always this bit about the King of Spain telling asshat fascist blowhard Hugo Chavez, "Por que no te callas?" ("Why don't you shut up?") during a recent summit. It's at the 40-second mark in the above YouTube video According to the BBC:

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". ... 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."

And here's the "Callas" ringtone download. Listen to it by pressing this button below.
