Lago Agrio, Ecuador - (Poison Chalice Ass Mess): Juan Nunez, presiding judge in Ecuador's KGB-bankrolled $27 billion lawsuit against Chevron Corp, is not a happy bunny if the Big Oil grapevine is to be believed.
Holed up in squalid, windowless, urine-stained Largo Agrio tenement attic room - reminiscent of Bernie 'Ponzi-scam' Madoff accountant's seedy Groom Lake, Nevada fantasy factory office - Judge Nunez fears for his life.
Hired by Venezuelan tinpot dictator Hugo Chavez's firstborn bastard President Rafael Correa to extract $27 billion from the mighty Chevron's coffers on trumped up land pollution charges Nunez knows the job is a poisoned chalice.
"Basically if he finds for Chevron then it will be Correa's Putin-hired drive-by shooter who has the last word on Nunez's career prospects," a BigOilShagger! editorial commented this weekend.
"But if he finds for that nutjob Correa it will still be the same Putin-hired drive-by Magnum enthusiast - just to make it look like a Chevron contract job.
"Alternatively the word out on the street is that Mrs Nunez is a very jealous, paranoid woman and easily convinced her husband has been having a lengthy affair with local stripper Maria Grazia Gonzales 44FF-24-36.
"A life insurance policy taken out on the Nunez couple's wedding day could possibly pay out trumps if the conditions were right."
