Never mind the unrest in Turkey, the bombings in Iraq, the elections in Iran and the NSA whistleblower hiding in Hong Kong -- the biggest geo-political issue right now is whether Russian presidentVladimir Putinstole New England Patriots ownerBob Kraft's Super Bowl ring.
Kraft met the Russian leader in 2005, and handed the ring to Putin. That's where the stories diverge. A few days after the visit, Kraft told the media that it was a gift. The ring has been housed in an archive of the Kremlin since then, as all valuable gifts to the government are. But a few days ago, Kraft changed his story. He told theNew York Postthat he was just showing the ring to Putin, but as soon as he handed it over, "he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out."
Now a Putin spokesman is firing back. Dmitry Peskov says, "What Mr. Kraft is saying now is weird. I was standing 20 centimeters away from him and Mr. Putin, and saw and heard how Mr. Kraft gave this ring as a gift."
The ring, which is encrusted with 124 diamonds, is worth more than $25,000.
so the whole world knows you have a giant PINK DILDO...
Thank you, random Bostonian being interviewed by the BBC about the bombing suspects, thank you for bringing a small amount of joy into this horrible day.
Without you, today would have been entirely free of awkwardly placed dildos, or possibly giant pink joke water bottles, and we would have no one to laugh at. But you, you noble bastard, you have given us someone to mock, someone to laugh at, and something to help us momentarily forget the horrors of this week. Thank you, you awkward little weirdo. Thank you.
LONDON (AP) — The BBC is in a bind after opponents of Margaret Thatcher pushed the song "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead" to the top of the British charts in a posthumous protest over her divisive policies.
The online campaign to drive the "Wizard of Oz" song to the No. 1 spot on the U.K. singles chart was launched by Thatcher critics shortly after the former prime minister died Monday of a stroke at age 87.
As of Friday, the song was No. 1 on British iTunes.
Still, many people say the campaign — which aims to see the song played this weekend on the BBC's Official Chart Show — is in bad taste. Some have called on the BBC to promise it won't broadcast the song.
John Whittingdale, a lawmaker from Thatcher's Conservative party, told the Daily Mail tabloid that many would find the ditty "deeply insensitive."
"This is an attempt to manipulate the charts by people trying to make a political point," he said.
In a statement, the BBC said it had not yet decided on whether it would feature the song on its show — which normally plays all the week's best-selling hits.
