In the headlines today

I like to think that only in the Netherlands can a newspaper get away with a full page picture from a classic porn film. On the front page, nogal. That's what happened yesterday.

Deep Throat is to be aired on national television. (I also love the fact that 'televisietieten' is an accepted term.) The truth is, that if the church minister had not kicked up a fuss, most of public probably wouldn't have even noticed it was on. Now everybody knows when it's being aired. Including me. Oh, and it will be followed by Spuiten en Slikken. I'm not translating that.

In other news, do sparrows really warrant an article topic? Surely not.

This all must be because the netherlands has no electricity problems to report on................

Is it serious that the leader of the CU party has a name 'Slob'? Is that Arie Slob or should it read "Are he Slob"?
As for "jouma's" comment..... we have electricity today, but just no water. We used to have a hot shower... then we had a "shower" ... so perhaps today I will have a "hot" before I go to work.
