Love Vandal: Italians Do It Better

Reader Sarah took this photo in Florence. Since we don’t speak Italian, she translated it for us: “Good wishes to you who is the best thing that has ever happened to me…! I love you!”

Have you seen graffiti that’s kind of sweet (even if it is against the law)? Send your pic to tips@thefrisky.com. Keep reading »

    Italian Hookers Have New Habits

    While every girl wants to stop traffic, Italian women are being accused of causing car accidents because they’re so damn sexy. Due to these ridiculous claims, the governments in Rome, Milan, and Florence have just passed laws decreeing that women dress and act more modestly. The legislation states that women must refrain from “adopting poses or behavior or wearing clothing that unequivocally manifest the intention to solicit or practice the activity of prostitution.” Say what?! That sounds like the pervs are blaming the wrong people — i.e. anyone but themselves. But the government maintains that they’re cracking down on clothing to curb streetwalkers. So what are working girls doing in these difficult times for advertising their goods? The world’s oldest profession is pulling one over on “the man” by taking up a new habit — literally. All the hookers have banded together and begun to wear nuns’ uniforms. Ha! Pia Covre, of the Committee for the Rights of Prostitutes, explained, “The idea of wearing gowns or habits down to the feet is to confront the decrees which limit even the freedom of what you can wear.” Ironically, now these whores are sticking it to the foolish Madonna complex. We like their sense of style!

    Lost In Translation: A Yeast Infection Abroad

    This summer, I met up with my fiance in Europe for a well-deserved vacation. He had been studying there for a month before I arrived, and sometimes, when a man and a woman love each other very much in a short period of time, soon after comes a very special gift from God, known as a yeast infection.

    Awesome. Exactly what you want to have on a vacation, while walking around all day, right? I knew I had to face the problem head on, even though we were in Italy and I don’t speak-a Italiana. But I also saw this as a cultural investigation: Knowing there are all sorts of alternative and natural methods for combating such unspeakable problems, I was curious to see if any different treatments were on the market in Europe.

    A Faulty Wedding Dress Causes Bride To Sue Designer

    When I think of all the disastrous things that could happen on someone’s wedding day, I generally think of flowers dying, or the cake being dropped as it’s being carried to the reception site. Well, one bride in Italy had it a lot worse. When this woman was married in 2006, her dress came unstitched and slid down, leaving her butt on display to all of her guests, and now she’s suing the dress’s designer. “The priest concluded the ceremony and the couple were married but of course she was not able to take any proper photographs of the ceremony because she was semi-naked,” the woman’s lawyer said. Not that pictures of her wedding day would mean much to her today — she and the groom have since separated. [MarieClaire.co.uk] Keep reading »

    Quick Pic: I Spy A Unicorn!

    I’ve got good news for the 8-year-old girl/gay boy inside of all of us. Your parents may have ruined Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and maybe even where babies come from, but they can’t take away the mythical, magical, magnificent Unicorn! It lives! Granted, in captivity, but a beautiful unicorn has been prancing around a nature preserve in Italy. Its mother, who was rescued after being hit by a car, gave birth at the facility to the now 10-month old baby roe deer. While scientists claim the horn is a genetic mutation, this “Unicorn” is still proof of what seemed to be just a fabled fantasy. Here’s hoping there’s a mermaid out there too!

    Sex In A Church Confessional

    An Italian couple totally got busted making love in the confessional in a cathedral. The two were detained by police when they disturbed things during morning Mass, but they met with the local bishop to ask for forgiveness and he did, and celebrated a “Mass of reparation” to make up for the sacrilege. And so we ask, where is the craziest place you’ve ever hooked up? [Reuters]

    Goodyear’s Golden Girl

    Just like good tires, you can get a lot of smooth rides out of a good woman. Well, that’s what Goodyear’s new Italian ad is claiming. A silver fox, wearing nothing but a mink stole and a “come hither” smile, poses like a pin-up next to the slogan, “The only thing in your truck that never gets old.” We basically want to grow up to be her.
