Young Handsome and Tanned

But enough about me.. ;)

Dear Silvio Berlusconi has got into trouble over compliments he made about Obama. The best bit of the story was highlighting something I missed:

Apparently, on first meeting Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen in 2002, Berlusconi complimented him with the words: "Mr Rasmussen is not only a great colleague, he's also the best-looking prime minister in Europe." He added: "He's so good looking, I'm even thinking of introducing him to my wife."

He also sparked a minor diplomatic incident in 2005 by suggesting he had wooed Finnish President Tarja Halonen to ensure her backing for Italy to host the European Food Safety Authority. "I had to use all my playboy tactics, even if they have not been used for some time," he said, prompting Helsinki to call in the Italian ambassador to explain the comments.

And "God save us from imbeciles" if you don't find it funny!
