Permissible Arms

I didn’t realize you got religion with the price of the visa

Guys, I’m so behind on everything that it’s not even funny anymore, but I couldn’t let this go by without posting.

Gaddafi spends two hours with 200 Italian ladies:

Muammar Gaddafi disappointed some 200 Italian women after he invited them using an agency advertizing a “party” where the Libyan leader proceeded to lecture them on Islam, Italian media reported on Monday.

The ad, by the Hostessweb agency, was very specific in the kind of woman that should attend and read: “Seeking 500 attractive girls between 18 and 35 years old, at least 1.70 meters (5 foot, 7 inches) tall, well-dressed but not in mini-skirts or low cut dresses.”

Some 200 women showed up at a Rome villa, having been told they would receive €60 ($90) and “some Libyan gifts.” Among them was an undercover reporter for Italian news agency ANSA, who took photos and described the evening’s proceedings.

The reporter described how the ladies answered the ad expecting to attend a lavish party but were instead told to wait in a large hall until the arrival of Gaddafi, who gave them a lesson on Libya and the role of women in Islam.

Seriously. You can’t make this shit up.

    My comrade, Dhaibhidh C Mhac Dhuihdhlheigh, wrote about Gaddafi’s [1] enlightened approach to female rights.

    [1] How did Leo McGarry spell his name? Anyone who ordered a military strike on the man’s palace should know the correct spelling.

      PS The obvious rejoiner to this story is, was the Italian PM judging?

      It’s Leo McGarry, I believe. I’ll try to check that post out this weekend; still very very behind in all things that interest me.

    Hey, you’re back, sort of.

    Yeah, work is cramping my blog writing and reading style. Man, this whole working for a living is such a drag, sometimes :)
