Play it again and again and again, Sam…


Okay, you’re a carpenter in India. You steal a million bucks worth of diamonds from a jewelry shop you’re working on, and the last thing you want to do is attract suspicion.

So naturally, you sell some of the diamonds, get drunk, go to a dance bar and tip the band lavishly to play the same song, over and over and over. You have them play the Bollywood song Humko Deewana Kar Gaye repeatedly, not for one night, not for two, but for three nights.

Oh, and while you’re at it, make sure a police informer is hanging out at the same bar, and that you’re carrying $67,000 worth of the diamonds with you when the cops pick you up. Here is the story:humko300.jpg

Cher and Cher alike…


For those of you who have always wanted to be just like Cher – and I don’t want to know who you are or how you found this blog – this is the event you’ve been waiting for.

In early October, the singer is holding a gigantic global garage sale, getting rid of 800 items, from stage costumes to gem encrusted jewelry, works of art, furniture and even a Hummer

Model misses the whole point of a necklace…


Remember what Marilyn Monroe’ character said when she was shown a tiara in the movie “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”?  “You DO wear it on your head. I just LOVE finding new places to wear diamonds!”  Well, looks like some women feel the same way about pearls.  Feel free to come up with your own caption and blast it to us via Post a Comment.   brazil300.jpg
