Today in Awkward Diplomatic Kerfluffles: the entire country of Ukraine is pissed at the entire country of The Netherlands for airing a commercial that implies sexy, sexy Ukrainian women are a bunch of husband-stealing sexpots. The ad was made by a Dutch energy company called NLE and references the Euro 2012 soccer games, which will be hosted by the Ukraine. (On a side note, any other Americans find it utterly impossible to keep Europoeans and their various soccer tournaments straight?!) The ad shows a woman Googling the words “Ukrainian women” and coming up with images of super sexy hot Ukrainian ladies. She then immediately goes and purchases an at-home beer tap, presumably so her husband will stay on his couch and not leave her for some random blonde chick in the Ukraine during a soccer match. Ukraine is now pissy that the commercial will affect tourism during the Euro 2012 games. Keep reading »

Hoo boy. Not that I would’ve pegged Snooki as the most meticulous user of birth control, but getting pregnant before/during the filming of her spin-off show, “Snooki & JWoww,” was not her best move. The entire reason anyone watches Snooki do anything is because she’s always had one more Fuzzy Navels than she should have. A pregnant Snooki is a sober Snooki and based on the preview for their show it’s —I hate to say it — a boring Snooki. [MTV.com]

Kim Kardashian Puts Her Politics Hat On & Other WTF Guests Invited To The White House Correspondents Dinner

The White House Correspondents Dinner (or “nerd prom,” as its called in the biz) is an annual occasion for political journalists to rub elbows and watch a comedian make fun the president to his face. This year, Jimmy Kimmel is doing the roast and there will be two guests in the audience whose political journalism credentials are impeccable: Kim Kardashian and her mother, Kris Jenner. The pair will be guests of Fox News and will schmooze with the likes of Lindsay Lohan, a guest of Fox News host Greta Van Sustern; the cast of “Modern Family,” guests of ABC; and Zooey Deschanel, a guest of Bloomberg. No, I don’t understand why any of these people were invited either.  [Jezebel]

But Kimmycakes and LiLo aren’t the only random guests to grace the White House Correspondents Dinner with their presence. The annual dinner has a long, sordid history of WTF Were These People Invited? guest lists …

Bringing new meaning to the phrase “before the body gets cold,” Egypt is considering a new law that will allow Egyptian husbands to have sex with their dead wife’s corpse up to six hours after death. But don’t get your panties in a knot, ladies. Wives can have sex with their dead husbands’ corpse as well, because the issue at hand is whether marriage is still in effect after death. (Unless rigor mortis sets in southward, we don’t much see the point.) This very important matter of “farewell intercourse” is just one of many measures Egypt’s Islamist-dominated parliament is considering; the others are not so what-the-fuck as they are human rights abuses. Other laws being considered would restrict women’s access to education and employment and lower the minimum marriage age to 14. Pardon my pun, but those are the real issues here, even if they’re not as sexy as the necrophilia law. [Al-ArabiyaDaily Mail UK]

Dorks need love, too, and that’s why I have nothing snarky to say about LARP Passions, an online dating website for “singles with a passion for LARPing.” What is LARPing, you ask? Live action role playing. Players act out fictional dramas in character, wearing costumes and carrying fake weapons, which they often build themselves. It’s sort of like Civil War re-enactors, but with spell packets and foam swords. Romantic. Keep reading »
