So normally I’m quite active about keeping up with international politics. I quite enjoy reading about current events, and knowing the latest goings-on around the world.
Today, however, I was stymied. Not because I didn’t understand the political situation in Italy, where Silvio Berlusconi is fighting to keep his job. No, today I was stymied because of THIS set of photographs (from the Telegraph):
Oh my god! Look at the photo in the bottom right! Do you see it? HE PAINTS ON HIS HAIR! That is clearly the most artificial hairline I have ever seen!! I know that some men struggle with going bald (not that I’m pointing fingers, Alex, I swear) … but who is he kidding?
I can even get past the pancake makeup and the orange tinge of his fake tan. But seriously. To spray paint your head to give yourself the appearance of a hairline is just bad.
And he’s supposed to be some terrible lothario, on top of it all. I can’t imagine why anyone would be interested, but I guess the attraction of power and all that has something to do with it.
