Wow, the tale of Italian prime minster Silvio Berlusconi keeps getting more and more sordid. This week, Italian prosecutors have charged eight people with sending prostitutes to Berlusconi’s infamous Bunga Bunga parties. The leader of the prostitution ring is one Giampaolo Tarantini, who is also being investigated for blackmailing Berlusconi in exchange for keeping his mouth closed about what went down. Currently, investigators are pouring over transcripts of conversations captured via wiretap, and are finding all sorts of scandalous details. Like that a famous Italian actress was allegedly offered a high profile national television gig if she’d sleep with Berlusconi. And in another phone conversation, between Berlusconi and a newspaper editor, Berlusconi is rumored to say that German chancellor Angela Merkel is “an unf**kable fat a**.” Yes, really.
And therein lies a big problem.

Bwahahahaha! Good one, TheFriskyPixie. We wish we had some kinda prize or something to give you. If you feel like flying to New York City, swing by the offices and we’ll take you out for a drink. (With our gay BFFs, of course.) Keep reading »
Take a look at that face. How could you not love that face? And yet, this little seal pup was left all by his lonesome, abandoned and blind on a deserted beach in Tyuleniy Island, Russia. He was spotted by photographer Anatoly Strakhov, who noted that his blindness would mean that he’d likely be unable to survive in the wild. Thankfully, the animal was taken in by a local marine life group. Was he shunned because of his rare auburn fur? Sigh. Poor gingers don’t get any respect. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
