Mascot “Mr. Balls” is making the rounds in Brazil.
Meet Mr. Balls. He’s the friendly and surprisingly graphic mascot for a Brazilian nonprofit cancer association, and as a brand ambassador he is a wildly inappropriate success. According to the group’s website: “Both children and adults loved taking pictures with the mascot.” That explains the shot of him waving to the camera on a city street while children frolic at his hairy side. No joke; we totally respect raising awareness for testicular cancer research. But does there really need to be such loving attention to detail in the sponge painting around the bottom of Mr. Balls’, um, teabag?
Mr. balls? I think we are being played folks, I think we know who Mr. Balls REALLY is. have a look
Tell me again that Islam means peace, go ahead!

MSN reported, via ROP:
Indonesian police said Monday they have arrested 62 people, most of them minors, involved in attacking a bar in south Jakarta for serving alcohol during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.
A group of 150 youths — some as young as 13 and carrying swords and golf clubs — raided the De Most bar late Saturday, smashing bottles of alcoholic drinks and damaging the property, said Hermawan, chief detective for South Jakarta police.
“Of the 62 arrested most are minors, and some… were armed with Samurai swords, sickles and golf clubs,” said Hermawan, who like many Indonesians goes by one name.
“They shattered the windows and door and smashed bottles, saying they wanted all bars shut to ensure the month of Ramadan is not tainted,” he added.
Twenty-three people face charges of damaging property while four are additionally charged with carrying sharp weapons.
The group called itself the Prophet’s Defenders Council, Hermawan said.
I must ask this, what should be done about things like this?

Audi’s American division president, however, doesn’t mince words when it comes to Dolt buyers (no pun intended).
Bring on the war of words. In a frank conversation with MSN writer Lawrence Ulrich, Audi of America President Johan de Nysschen has said that the Chevy Volt will fail and that anybody who buys the car is an idiot. Not only that, de Nysschen has lumped proponents of any type of electric car into a category of “intellectual elite who want to show what enlightened souls they are.”
BINGO! Nailed it! Someone give this guy a prize!
