IKN does the job of Bloomberg's John Quigley for him

"The Peruvian Nuevo Sol (PEN) crashed and was sent into the depth of Hades itself as it plummeted an amazing 0.3% to S/2.8115 on Tuesday as the realization that yet another South American state was about to fall into the baby-eating clutches of Hugo Chávez. A trader that did not want to be identified told Bloomberg that the rumors of Chávez sharing his baby meat meals with Peru Presidential run-off candidate Ollanta Humala were all true and that investors should be running for the hills immediately, making sure they take all their young children with them....just in case."

UPDATE: Paranoia and ooga booga scariness isn't confined to Bloomie. On this link Life In Peru's author Ward plays a joke on his facebook friends about Humala and, sure enough, they fall for it. And by the way, I agree with the points 1) and 2) he puts below it all (when being more serious).
