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.

The Tale of Cadbury And The Most Expensive Golden Chocolate Bar

And lo, when Wispa Gold, son of Cadbury, known for his chocolatey goodness, went out of production, the people, angered and saddened, gathered themselves upon Mt. Facebook.

“Let not this day be the last of Wispa!” cried the Facebookite clan who called themselves Bring Back Cadbury’s Wispa Gold. “Bring him back to us for we have no more candy to worship!”

And so Cadbury complied, and dispatched Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley to the land of Selfridges in London to deliver a gift: a golden idol, a Wispa bar covered in gold and sheathed in a golden wrapper. It was to be the most expensive bar of chocolate ever sold, worth over $1,600. “Go thee to Selfridges in the next week to witness its display and bow before its chocolatey altar,” said the Lord. “But, he that purchases the Wispa Gold bar must share his riches with the UK Lowe Syndrome Trust.”

And so the people went, and they were happy. [Telegraph.co.uk] Keep reading »

Mariah Carey’s New Album Takes Product Shilling To The Next Level

Mariah Carey’s next album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, hits shelves on September 15th. And it’ll be a lot bigger than your traditional CD. The album will come bundled with a 34-page magazine made by the folks at Elle. The ad section of the book, which covered the costs for this endeavor, will be home to lifestyle ads that reflect Mariah’s taste—Elizabeth Arden, Angel Champagne, Carmen Steffens, Le Métier de Beauté, and the Bahamas Board of Tourism. A second section of the magazine will contain articles all about Mariah, with “VIP Access to Her Sexy Love Life,” “Amazing Closet,” and “Recording Rituals.” The third part of the book will be your traditional liner notes, full of lyrics and images. The entire booklet will also be available in digital form, and an abridged version will be tucked into 500,000 copies of Elle’s October issue.

Sure, this is the first cross-platform collaboration of its kind. But isn’t this shill-fest taking things way too far?

Kristin Cavallari Caught Reading A “Hills” Script

We already knew “The Hills” was fake from that time Lauren Conrad told the ladies on “The View” that Spencer wasn’t on the other end of her apology phone call. Oh, and from that other time when L.C. wrote a book based on her experience on “The Hills,” and the characters weren’t sure if what they were going through was real or set up. But now, the show’s producers are totally slacking and not even trying to hide the fakery. Yesterday, a paparazzi photographer caught Kristin Cavallari flat-out reading through a “Hills” script with a producer before filming a clearly set-up romance between her and Justin Bobby. C’mon MTV, just so I don’t have to feel excessively guilty when I watch the next season, can’t you play pretend and at least attempt to cover up the phony reality? [NY Post] Keep reading »

A Gay Sherlock Holmes Movie?


Personally, I’m pretty excited about Guy Ritchie‘s upcoming “Sherlock Holmes” flick, starring Roberty Downey Jr. and Jude Law. From the preview, it looks pretty intense and I’m into the ninja thing that Sherlock has going on. But I became even more intrigued when Robert Downey Jr., said in an interview this week that in the movie, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are gay lovers. Downey Jr., who plays Sherlock, said that he and Dr. Watson (aka Jude) are “…two men who happen to be roommates, wrestle a lot and share a bed. It’s bad-ass.” [Metro UK]
