Move Over Fashion

Thought you had seen everything in Milan? Think again. Introducing the Museo Della Merda, or loosely translated , the Museum of Poop. Anything you want to know about the excrement in culture, technology or history,  is right here. “Few phenomena are so rich in material and conceptual complexity as the cultural history of shit”  says the museum.

Why is there no Wongs?

The top ten most common surnames in the Italian city of Milan now includes three Chinese names. Take a bow all you Hus, you have the second most popular surname. Chen is number 8 and Zhou is just scraping in at 10.

Well That Ends Kim Jong Il’s Dance Lessons

How the hell can I star in Chorus Line now?

Oh for crying out loud Italy, why deny the second happiest country in the world tap shoes? Seems the Italians have blocked a ship carrying high quality tap shoes from China to North Korea. That’s a breach of United Nation’s ban on sale of luxury goods to the despot Pyongyang, right there!!!.

Sorry, Don’t Know The Answer

If anyone happens across the body of an 85 year old quizmaster, it’s probably Mike Bongiorno. Some one has nicked his body from a grave in Arona near Milan. The dude was one of Italy’s “Quiz show king” for more than 50 years and worse still was a close mate of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. The body snatching theft has left the nation stunned and bewildered. So far no ransom has been demanded for the return of the body.

It’s Amore

Sometimes being a Prime Minister sucks. Just ask Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi who was left with a broken nose and teeth after being hit in the face with a statuette (no people it wasn’t his wife or golf club). Berlusconi was minding his own business at a rally in Milan when some fruitcake threw a statue at his face and scored a direct hit. Not to worry, he lives to fight another day and another sex scandal.

Psst OK, I know what you are thinking, it was a souvenir plaster statuette of the cathedral!

Not a Very Handy Terrorist!

Fail!

Fail!

Here’s the thing would-be terrorist, if you are going to throw a  bomb at a police barracks in Milan make sure you get your hand out of the way or you could lose it. Libyan Mohamed Game, who has lived in Italy for 6 years, made the homemade device from fertilizer but failed to chuck it far enough before it went boom! Doctors later amputated what was left of his hand.

Very Nice

I am thinking Miuccia Prada just breathed a huge sigh of relief that Borat’s alter ego, Bruno, has turned the focus of Italy’s fashion week well and truly away from her High heels.Looking like a Vivienne Westwood model, Sacha Baron Cohen, paraded down the catwalk in his velcro number, before anyone realized he wasn’t part of the show. As security dragged the comedian away, several people were rumored to have been interested in the design! Agata Luiz della Prada show is the latest victim of Sacha’s new doco Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt. Sacha was detained by police but was later released without charge but I think he had to sign a few autographs for his troubles.

UPDATE : Dude, give up already, they are on to you. The third unexpected appearance by Bruno (aka Sacha Baron Cohen) has left the fashion world bemused. The latest catwalk invasion happened at Jean-Charles de Castelbajac’s in Paris and resulted once again in his eviction from the event. Call me a cynic, but no publicity is bad publicity and I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t get secretly invited to disrupt these fashion shows.
