An aphalling distraction
The Guardian UK reports on an Italian man (apparently he is gay) bent on distracting live TV broadcasts with a message on condoms. Although Gabriele Paolini's antics have succeeded in drawing attention to himself and his phallic message, they are a nightmare to newscasters and TV reporters. The Guardian reports that his latest stunt involved throwing himself in front of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's car to announce he had joined his party and had wedded his gay boyfriend. Paolini's stunts may work on NTV or KTN, but I advice him strongly against throwing himself in front of PM Raila's car. He should not even imagine trying to think of Kibaki's motorcade.
