Hugo and Che Perfume

Wow. Cuban government to punish a company for doing something they don’t like? Sounds like Obama’s America.

The Cuban government has said it will take disciplinary action against a state pharmaceutical company that created perfumes named Ernesto Che Guevara and Hugo Chavez.

In a statement in the official Granma newspaper, the government described the project as “a serious error”.

“The symbols of the Revolution are and will always be sacred,” it read.
