That Ratan Tata sounds like such a lovely fellow…

Says the charming Mr Tata on the long waiting list for his new £1,300 Nana car:

”You wouldn’t want to make someone wait to long for his car since a car is like a pretty woman. If you wait too long she will become old and perhaps fat.”

I was going to say ‘God love his wife’ but then I thought, sure the poor chap mightn’t have one. And so off to the ever trustworthy Wikipedia I go to see if there is a lucky Mrs Tata.

From Wikipedia:

Personal life

Mr Ratan Tata has a metalic blue Maserati.[4] He sometimes likes to fly his private jet himself.[5]

So I guess he really does compare cars to wimmins. Sure we’re only accessories after all. Expensive accessories obviously but accessories all the same. Pfffffffft.

Grand Theft Auto IV

Some poor young fella has had his jaw broken and his brand new copy of Grand Theft Auto IV teefed.

I do think the criticism over this game is ridiculous though. If you can’t separate reality from a fecking video game, then that’s your problem and not the game makers. It has an age rating for a reason, people.

Lesbian lesbians.

This is bananas. Completely.

Certain residents of the Greek Island Lesbos want to ban the use of the word ‘lesbian’ as a gay woman. Rather it should only be used in conjunction with being a citizen of their island.


Realism people, isn’t it a bit late to be making a fuss now? Maybe I’m just mean.

This is interesting though: “The term lesbian originated from a mythological goddess and poet called Sappho, who was a native of Lesbos.

Sappho expressed her love of other women in poetry written during the 7th Century BC.

Man accused of forcing toddler to smoke marijuana

This is so unbelievably disturbing.

The guy filmed himself forcing an 18 month old child to smoke pot and then sold his video camera to a pawnshop. The pawnshop found the tape in the camera and thankfully turned it over to the police.

There is a news report online which shows the baby smoking but it’s extremely disturbing.

Sick, sick world.
