Um, Please, Just Don’t

25 Jan

This is kind of old; I took it during a bus ride back in November. But it still makes me want to have a good ha-ha chuckle (in lieu of having a not so ha-ha vomit in the toilet).

Anyone out there ever heard of this dude Berlusconi? Yeah, he effed things up for us over here quite royally.

So once they ousted him and the good ol’ government “fell” as it often does around these parts, what posters did he have his minions start putting up around our fair city?

He says, we assume by way of consoling the populace, that: “I’ll double my commitment.”

So, hmm. Let me ponder this sentiment for just one moment. Does that mean you’ll be taking a double dose of your Viagra and whatever other methods they’ve invented since the time of your birth back in NINETEEN THIRTY SIX to assist you in your bedroom antics? (Berlusconi Sex Scandal for Dummies here along with a very scary bonus picture of how he is basically a living version of a wax statue).

Um, yeah, no. Just don’t. Grazie, ma no grazie. Va bene? Basta. What a trip.

    I just loved this after he was forced to step down as Prime Minister…It’s just like the U.S. Republithug candidates promising “more of the same” after they ruined America & drove the world economy off a cliff.
    Problem is, they’re a whole heck of a lot more dangerous than Silvio…
