Berlusconi strikes again

Good old Silvio, always ready with a well-placed quip. After discussing the subject of people trafficking with the Albanian prime minister, Berlusconi thought it appropriate to add a little humour: Mr Berlusconi, 73, said an accord between Italy and Albania had successfully clamped down on the trafficking of illegal immigrants across the Adriatic Sea by ...


Obi-Wan was Nigerian?

I just feel sorry for this guy - pranked into reading the plots behind 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air' and 'Star Wars' on a Christian phone-in show. Favourite quote: "There is only one force - the power of God". Bless. He must be cold, though - what with having to wear such a swanky jacket ...

I think they've managed to do that, and ...


Can I haz Tablit?

I've amazed even myself (no small feat) by refraining from bombarding this blog with every rumour regarding Apple's upcoming Tablet device.
