Why don’t you shut up?

So this Wiki Journey is not only about learning, but remembering all those epic moments in modern history. The title of this post refers to probably the most memorable words said by the King of Spain, Juan Carlos I.

Imagine pissing a king so much that he actually asks you to shut up, all in a public event and right in front of all Ibero-American presidents.

That’s exactly what former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez achieved after continuously interrupting Spanish President Zapatero during the 2007 Ibero-American Summit.

The famous quote flooded YouTube and got t-shirts, memes and even a TV program with that name in its honour.

What a way to get into the most remembered quotes of modern politics, Juan Carlos I.
