Libertarian candidate Otto Guevara caught ‘sleeping’ at election blessing?

February 1, 2014

Update: See Guevara’s response meme at the end of the article.

Six of Costa Rica’s 13 presidential candidates appeared at Costa Rica’s evangelical television station Enlace today for a blessing from one of the network’s pastors.

But while most of the candidates appeared in their Sunday’s best sporting respectful prayer faces, Ticos on social media networks thought Libertarian Movement Party candidate Otto Guevara looked like he had fallen asleep standing up mid-blessing.

In typical Costa Rican fashion, Twitter and Facebook were soon flooded with memes:

This Twitter user decided he looked like a floating body from the 1980s cartoon “Ulysses 31”

In the end, however, it was Guevara who got the last laugh with this response meme from a supporter:
