Where Prostitutes Are More Trustworthy Than Politicians And Scientists

Insight China magazine conducted an online survey of 3,376 Chinese peeps about who they trusted. And their findings are pretty counter-intuitive—folks said that trusted prostitutes more than both government officials and scientists. In fact, prostitutes came in third place as a group, just above farmers and religious workers. The China Daily covered the study this week, saying, “Given the constant feed of scandals involving the country’s elite, this is not bad at all. At least [the scientists and politicians] have not slid into the least credible category which consists of real estate developers, secretaries, agents, entertainers and directors.” [AFP]

I don’t even know where to start with this one. It’s not that surprising that prostitutes beat out government officials who go nuts there with the censor-happy schtick. But prostitutes also beat out students and teachers. And what’s so bad about secretaries? Who would you guys rank as the most trustworthy? Frisky bloggers? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Ever since the spat pack broke up/went to rehab/got married/had babies, the Hollywood party scene has been sooo boring. But Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan are hanging out again and something tells me this could get interesting! Last night, they stayed up until 3 a.m. dancing, chatting, and (unfortunately) being good. [X17Online]

This brings warmth to our friendship-loving, gossip-mongering hearts. Oh, but there are so many other celebrity friendships that we’d like to see rekindled now!

Sarah Palin’s Feud With David Letterman Gets Pornified

Well, it was bound to happen. Porn company Lethal Hardcore Video has spoofed the Sarah Palin/David Letterman feud for a flick called, ahem, “F**k My Mom and Me.” In the dirty movie, “Letterman” has sexual relations with both the former Governor (“Sara Paelin”) and her daughter (“Bristhole Paelin”). Has porn finally gone too far?! I’m sure Palin thinks so, but this is just another example of the negative side of putting your family in the limelight (and People magazine). As for the mother/daughter theme, this is hardly new. Porn with incestuous themes are pretty common — I’ve seen (and by “seen” I mean, uh, glimpsed, not watched) porn where two actresses, playing mother/daughter, sisters, etc. schtoop each other. I’ve even seen some twin porn and what’s icky about that is that it’s hard to fake identical twins. [AVN.com] Keep reading »

“Birthers” Lawyer Brings The Crazy To MSNBC

Orly Taitz, the attorney for the birthers movement — those, uh, determined peeps who believe Obama is not a U.S.-born citizen — appeared on MSNBC yesterday and she was a whole lot of crazy. I really don’t know what she’s talked about, but it has something to do with the “real” Obama birth certificate being leaked (which all reputable news organizations have determined as false). MSNBC’s David Shuster and Tamron Hall can’t help but shake their heads in wonderment, but I, for one, want to know when American lawyers are going to start dressing like 1950′s rollerskating waitresses.
