Q: How Many Hondurans

does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: None, they get Hugo Chavez to pay for Cuban technicians to do it for them.

So I learn from The Economist, which reports:
Venezuela has offered to buy Honduran bonds worth $100m, whose proceeds will be spent on housing for the poor. Mr Chávez has also offered a $30m credit line for farming, 100 tractors, and 4m low-energy light bulbs (Cuba will send technicians to help to install them, as well as more doctors and literacy teachers.)
