News, but not the serious kind

I’m ready Lamar, go have that pork chop now!

February 1, 2010

Warning, this is an adults-only scene. It’s evening in the boudoir, a woman is wearing a black satin nightie and red stiletto heels, there’s chilled champagne beside the bed…

“Are you as turned-on as I am, Lamar?”

“I sure am, Sweetheart!”

“Then go eat that ham sandwich and have your porky-porky way with me!”

ARGENTINA-MEDIA/It turns out Argentina’s president, the woman in these photos, has been making news in her country by telling the pig farming industry that eating pork improves your sex life.

“I’d say it’s a lot nicer to eat a bit of grilled pork than take Viagra,” President Cristina Fernandez said, adding that she recently spent a satisfying weekend with her husband – the gentleman in the photo above – after eating barbecued pork.

Indeed, it got her so much attention that she later praised the benefits of poultry, as well. I’m trying not to imagine the references to breasts, thighs and legs.

The boost for local products seems to be working out okay for her so far, but I hope she’s done her homework. If it turns out the Pfizer folks actually produce Viagra in Argentina, this ploy could come back to bite her. Or whatever.

Aw, when I first looked, I thought maybe that was a picture of Lamar and we finally got to see what he looked like.

Oh well, maybe next time.

Their powers are equal to those of the Third Assistant to the Vice President.

That’s funny ifly, I was thinking the exact opposite. She’s showing us her technique. Ahem. Yeah.

So now I know what I’m gonna visualize when I’m tying to ‘prolong’ the moment. Forget asking what colour a Smurf turns if you choke it, I’ll just imagine these two going at it.

Er. Pardon me…I’m feeling a little queasy. You’ll find me in the bathroom!

Please, PLEASE don’t cry for me Argentina. Everyone knows that beef is best down there, so she must be playing….

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
I forgot my red stilletos for a moment… And I think I am gonna be stuck with E’s visualisation for the evening!!

E, I actually laughed at that one. My coworkers looked at me funny.

Shra, you have a pair of red stilletos? And you have lost them?

And you have a pair of red stilletos?

Hmmm….:p

Is she married to Arnold Ziffel of Green Acres fame?
That would explain a lot.

Anyone else notice that belt buckle? That is one serious belt buckle…

I think she is referring to “huge tracts of land.” The gesture is Monty Python reminiscent.

Sorry about the misplaced “Third Assistant” comment. It was intended for the preceding Obama/Biden thread. Boy do I feel like a silly goose!

Huh, I eat pork all the time, and still there’s a shocking lack of hot men turning up on my doorstep.

My first day in graduate school, I was checking out my new office when I heard a female voice yell down the hallway: “You know what they say about women who wear red shoes. They can be made!” Then the speaker came into my office and introduced herself as my officemate. She was wearing a red and white dress … and red high heels.

When this story first came out I posted it on Facebook.

It was surprising how many men told me that they planned to cook for their wives that weekend…

Oh I wish I had red stilletos, Mr. Pilot! :P
And Bill, that is seriously a serious belt buckle…
I dont eat pork… does that mean I would not get any hot men? :(

E, spot on!

Nevertheless, kindly stop rocking the bench! E’s visualisalition made me a bit nauseous, and the rocking movement only worsens it!

Ok so if the bottom pick is depicting her technique, is that to say the photo of him is depicting his?

Wishes can come true Shra with a simple visit to a shoe store.

Or a website that specializes in……red stilletos. :p

Would you like me to have red stilletoes?

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive
 

No unca, I didn’t. I was not, and am not, that kind of guy, which I sometimes think is a darn shame.

I didn’t quite get the context of a woman in red shoes being “made”. Immediately I thought of some mafia thing and if she was gonna run around the office shouting “All the muffins in the conference room MUST have EQUAL amounts of bluberries!!”

I would never say no to a woman wearing red stilletos Shra. :)

ifly, you could be right. Personally I only took a split second look at the photo of the guy…then I blocked out the memory by going to my happy place.

Mmmmm happy place!

:D

“Can be made” hereabouts is slang for will go “boom boom.”

Oohh… methinks I should be shopping for shoes again… ;)

Thanks for clearing that up Dr. D. I would have gotten it previously but for some reason my mind decided to leave the gutter after many many years in an attempt to expand itself. I gave it a proper scolding.

E, judging by her face though it does not appear as if he is any good at it.

I do not have a happy place, but my spirit animal is a honey badger.

Shra, so when will you be modeling? ;)

Unca, scars you say ?

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive
 

Just to be perfectly clear, on this blog “boom boom” is slang for “being made.”

Uncarastus, you have not seen me before my morning cup of coffee.

I love dogs, can that count as a spirit animal?

I am sorry to come back on issues already discussed, but if she’s showing off her technique and he’s showing of hers, I think her face in the first pic clearly shows neither of them work. Perhaps that’s why she has such a great opinion of pork meat!

“Eat pork and pork more!?”

Does anyone know any protoplasmic resusitation techniques? Unca went and got himself squished again.

Mr. Pilot, I’d say some pork chops, accompanied by some nice beans and cornbread, would be sufficient to insuflate some life into him.

Now, what happens when he needs to ex-suflate after the beans and pork have hit is another issue entirely…

Sorry, on my way to get my morning fix.

M, well the room gets very stinky, as per Ms. Fernandez facial expression.
