la Ultima de Lavanderia

Norberto Longo was the ruler of Costa Mierda. He had been for as long as anyone, himself included, could remember.

He was only 13 when his father met a violent end, assassinated by revolutionaries of the Partido de las Morsas y los Carpinteros. That had been 75 years ago, when the presidential palace was still a split-level ranch house, and things moved a lot slower in Costa Mierda and her capital city, Cerrote Amarillo. Still Norberto had ruled with an iron hand from the very beginning, even though he was not much more than a little kid. Finding himself having to survive among the piranhas, he became a shark.

He once kicked a guy in the penis.
