News, but not the serious kind
The oldest wet T-shirt contest?
Blog Guy, I’m looking for someplace decadent to go for spring break. I hear it gets very wild in Hungary. Is that true? Where is Hungary?
You mean the “sprinkling” ritual. Young men throw buckets of water on young women, but it’s not like you think. They also throw cologne and recite funny poems.
I don’t know any funny Hungarian poems. Do you?
Just that one limerick, “An actress named Zsa Zsa Gabor…” No, I can’t use that.
But the water thing is about getting “wet and wild,” am I right?
No, it’s about making the women fertile.
Fertile? Uh-oh, that’s not good. I’ll go to Acapulco, instead.
