Chavez has been removed from the ballot due to invalid signatures he gathered to get on that ballot, but he's come up with a way to raise campaign funds to get back on track: Chavez swag.

This includes having a meal with Chavez for $50 (you have to cover the cost of the meal, too).

Equally hilarious is a list of Chavez "facts" he's recently placed on his website:


According to our own analysis, that's a whole lot of bull. Here's the rundown:

1. Actually probably true
2. False
3. False
4. I was about to give my toaster a bath until I heard Chavez was running. False.
5. Insufficient evidence
6. Guaranteed non-best-seller
7. Possibly true.
