A man who appreciates a nice bust…
Blog Guy, as long as you’re covering foreign news like the British elections, can you fill us in on the Italian Government?
I’ve heard some slightly disturbing stuff about the prime minister’s health.
Well, we’re all getting older, aren’t we? Yes, Silvio Berlusconi’s eyesight is starting to go, as you can see in these photos.
They say he wanders around the grounds of his residence and tries to make conversation with the statues.
Oh dear. That’s very sad. Doesn’t he notice that they don’t talk much?
No, he’s never been a big listener. He tends to stop when he sees them, lectures them on being too pale and needing more sunlight, and then he wanders on.
That’s unfortunate. I must say, those are very sharp, high-quality photos. Do you know what they were taken with?
I’m guessing an icon.
Ouch! That’s atrocious! You’ll pay forever for an outrageous pun like that!
No I won’t, not forever. There’s a statue of limitations…
