Nude blonde at the gas station with Ferrari (with PHOTOS)
|A customer to remember|
A sleepy summer Monday so let's spice things up with some recent stories from the online English edition of Pravda. Once the go-to house organ of the Communist Party in the USSR, Pravda (at least online) has shifted from lengthy columns on wheat yields and five-year economic plans to steamier fare. "With photos," blared a recent story about a naked blonde in East Germany who visited a gas station wearing only stilettos, a thin, gold bracelet and a large tattoo on her back. (More we couldn't see.) She was in a Ferrari. Of course. Ever conscious of my readers, I helpfully provided a link to the story and a couple of photos.
Maybe it's not so far-fetched for Russia, given the country pioneered nude newscasters — with nude guests — an idea that proved ahead of its time.
Pravda has more, much more. To coincide with a recent visit to Moscow by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Pravda offered a scintillating report on marital difficulties between George and Laura Bush.
GRAIN OF SALT ALERT: Seems the first couple is divorcing after the next election because of George W.'s relationship with his secretary of state. Details include an alleged $20 million payoff to Laura Bush and a recent Freudian slip in which Rice started to refer to George W. as "my hus-" before snapping into "the president." If you're wondering why we haven't been reading all this in the mainstream press, the Pravda stories slips in, almost as an aside, that the source is the National Enquirer. Oh. Unassailable.
Other must-reads include:

- I struggled for years with a fat belly, until I found this 1 secret.
- Crazy, wealthy Russians will soon purchase the whole of the French Riviera
- Another US family kills another baby adopted from Russia
Some may have a grain of truth, but the spin. Wowee!
Naturally, your faithful blogger doesn't read this kind of drivel. I must excuse myself and point the finger at the person who tipped me off to the Pravda site: Toronto musician, artist and Internet trawler, the very talented Steve Castellano. He has a number of interesting gigs going these days, including the recent launch of a jazzy, intellectually-bent podcast with a late-night feel. He promises his second post (maybe today) will have his entry to the CBC's search for a new Hockey Night in Canada theme.
Steve (who I must disclose is a pal) also has a cool website with existential feline cartoons. Really.
