    MIAMI (AFP) - Cuban leader Fidel Castro (news - web sites) apparently fell victim to a prank by a Miami radio station, and used crude expletives against Miami talk show hosts who led him to believe he was on the phone with his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez.

    The recording of the conversation was repeatedly aired since Tuesday by the Spanish-language radio station El Zol 95.7, which had already played a similar prank on Chavez in January, pretending Castro was on the line.

    The make-believe Chavez sought help from Castro in tracking down a suitcase containing secret documents he said he lost during the leaders' recent trip to Argentina.

    Eventually, a man posing as a Chavez aide asked Castro: "Do you agree with the **** on the island, murderer?" and added, "You fell for it ... the whole of Miami is listening to you, Fidel Castro."

    "What did I fall for, you ****," the irate Cuban leader answered, adding further crude expletives, including references to the anatomy of the host's mother.

    "He used very obscene words the president of a country should never use," said the radio host Joe Ferrero said later.

    Castro eventually hung up, ending the 25-minute conversation.

    The radio station used the same technique it had employed for the Castro imitation in January, piecing together fragments from Chavez speeches.

    Miami is home to close to 700,000 Cuban exiles and Cuban-Americans, many of whom staunchly oppose Castro's communist government.

    Poor Fiedel, his age is catching up with him and maybe he's had just had a little too much cuban stoggies. I think it's hillarious that they punked fiedel.

      How did they get his phone number, and why haven't they put that out on the air?

            Just skip to the last minute, that's where you can pick up some words that are quite easy to understand, despite the language barrier... [Wink]

                They bleeped all the bad words ...well....scrambled them so it sounded weird. All I heard was "Tu madre"....everyone knows what that means....he sounded like a pretty mad old fart. It was a long conversation and I did not listen to it all...just a lot of blah blah abdout who was who and something about a bad line. When the guy told Fidel who he was; the expletives began....I am sure it was good stuff.
