You Gotta Love Italian Politics!

Where else could you find a paragraph in a newspaper as bizzarre as this one (from The Guardian, May 7, 2011) ? 

"(Ms) Minetti, a former dancer who qualified as a dental hygienist, met the prime minister during his dental surgery to repair the injuries he suffered in December 2009 when he was hit in the face by a mentally unstable assailant. She subsequently became a candidate for his Freedom People party and holds a seat in the Lombardy regional assembly."

The only way you could make this sound any more strange would be, say, if Berlusconi had been "hit in the face by a tourist souvenir replica of the Cathedral in Milan thrown by a mentally unstable assailant " 


That is actually true as well....

Pigs, Bacon and Breakfast

Why is Bacon so fundamentally associated with Breakfast? Its a tasty meat, always popular - but all around the world it's only seen at breakfast time.

Do pigs all around the world breathe a collective sigh of relief around 9am every morning once they realise they are safe for another day?
