The main character of a Mexican sitcom produced in the 70s and 80s, by the media conglomerate Televisa. It has been the most widely watched show in the Spanish language for decades.

Chavo is a homeless orphan child who lives from the "charity" of the inhabitants of the neighborhood where he hangs out. The other characters seem to amuse themselves by mocking him, hitting him, offering him food but then denying it, and generally torturing him.

Critics argue that its director, Roberto Gomez Bolaños, aka Chespirito, has earned fame and fortune by taking advantage of the worst kinds of attrocities, such as child abuse, violence, homelesness, hunger, etc, and has presented them in a "funny" way.

The show offers repetitive gags, which are followed by laughter cues, perhaps as an acknowledgement that the audience would otherwise not understand the purportedly funny situations.
Kiko: Hey Chavo, are you hungry? Do you want this empanada (bringing it to Chavo's face)?

Chavo: yes!!!!

Kiko: cooompra!!! (go buy some!!! as he takes it away)

Chavo: pipipipipipippi!!!! (Chavo's signature cry, a common occurence throughout each episode)

A chain retail store United States, which sells cheap goods made by exploited labor in Southeast Asia, at low prices made possible by evading taxes, not insuring their "associates", paying minimun wage and firing "associates" at the slightest hint of unionizing.

Their motto, "Always low prices", has been mocked by some as "Always low wages".
Jason: Those Mexican cleaners are locked every night at their workplace.

Susan: What! Where the hell do they work?

Jason: They work at Walmart.

1. A bloody dictator from the Latin American country of Venezuela. Despite his murderous, tyranical and corrupt regime, he has allowed a recall referendum, and has been elected 3 times by an overwhelming percentage of Venezuelans, who -we are told- hate him more than anyone else in the world.

2. The President of Venezuela, despised by 95% of the corporate media, business groups, and pro "free market" governments. His biggest detractors are the rich Venezuelans, the Miami mafia and the Bush administration.

3. Chaves, Brazilian name for "El Chavo del Ocho", a Mexican sitcom from the 70s and 80s.
Jorge: I hate that fucking Chavez!! We must overthrow him and restore democracy!!

Vince: But he won more than 10 fair elections, didn't he?

George: I don't give a shit!! Those ignorant poor always vote the wrong way! We must kill him!!
