All you ever do is Talk Talk!
The Mayor of Guayaquil, Ecuador’s biggest city, has hired a parrot to speak on his behalf when he is asked “undesirable questions”. Jaime Nebot presented the bird to journalists, saying: “Some people only approach me with nonsense talk, so here is my answer.”

Blow-up bride proved deadly
A Brazilian man who considered an inflatable puppet his “bride” killed his parents because they demanded he divorce her, media reports said today.
The 44-year-old unemployed man apparently confessed to the crime, which occurred on Saturday, after a long interrogation by police in a suburb of Sao Paulo city, a police spokesman said. “The man thought the doll was a human being, called her his bride and talked to her,” an acquaintance of the family was quoted as saying. But his parents, who were religious, demanded he separate from the doll.
When the mother took scissors and cut holes in the man’s “bride”, the man strangled and stabbed his father, age 70, and mother, age 71. “My parents didn’t love me and didn’t understand me,” the man was quoted as saying.
A PERUVIAN philosophy student took her virginity off the auction block after an anonymous benefactor lent her the tuition money she lacked. ‘Sandy,’ 21, told the “W” radio network by telephone that a sympathetic woman had lent her $US2,800 ($4,271). She expressed relief at withdrawing her virginity from the internet auction she had announced last week. Bidding opened at $US1,000 ($1,525). She guaranteed her offer with a doctor’s certificate that her hymen was intact. The auction had received thousands of email bids from all over the world. However a woman had offered to lend her nearly three times that amount, without conditions. “She understood me more than others and decided to help me because she has a daughter like me,” she said. She insisted she was not a prostitute. Rather, giving up her virginity was the only way to defray her tuition.
I think selling yourself is becoming a college fad (see my May 30th blog) …so I wonder what is next?
