X-Rated campaigning
Lexington Herald-Leader | Submitted by: taz
"A television ad that made its debut yesterday on a Hazard station shows a portion of what a political challenger claims is "an X-rated" video that he says depicts Floyd County Property Valuation Administrator Connie Hancock sitting on a small bed, beginning to remove clothing.

Heise | Submitted by: anonymous
"Ob das im Sinne der mörderischen Videofilmer ist oder der geheimnisvollen Leute, die den Film als erste ins Netz gestellt haben, bleibt vorerst im Dunkeln. Gleichwohl gibt es eine seltsame Parallele. Während das Video nach Angaben von CBS angeblich vor allem in Saudi Arabien benutzt wird, um neue Terroristen zu rekrutieren, wird durch die Veröffentlichung des Films in amerikanischen Netzforen ja wiederum der Hass gegen die Terroristen geschürt.

Dogmeat dishes on display
for.yna.co.kr | Submitted by: Sputnik & Mutt
Proving the versatility of dog meat and the country's official "Fuck you, Westerners, we love our doggie meat and there ain't shit you can do about it" stance, a South Korean professor proudly displays that it even makes for a good burger. Note: the dish on the left, although suspiciously resembling a canine turd, is actually supposed to be some kind of dog meat sausage. As tourists and soccer fans from around the World are flocking to Seoul for next month's World Cup, chances are good that this culinary delight will soon be available at your local TGIF. Woof!
