Wow, that's hilarious, but I wish I hadn't just ate lunch.

jeeze you guys, it's just boobies. if you work for a company where having that on your monitor could get you fired, you should just quit now, lol... j/k... kind of... not really.

anyway, that mag cover is simultaneously horrific and hilarious... or horrilarious, if you will.

Ah yes, Europe again sucks at the teet of the Fatherland...or shall I say Motherland??

No wonder shrub wanted to give her a "back rub" so bad; isn't that sort of like getting half-way between home and first base?

I'm of the minority opinion that freedom is the right to yell "fire!" in a crowded theater, so *shrug*.

I think it's probably safe to assume that SLOG in general is NSFW.

slog in general is SFW, most posters put things behind NSFW links.

really i'm just complaining about huge titties on my monitor when I just loaded up the slog.

like "oh shit" MINIMIZE!

@8: but don't you see, that "oh shit MINIMIZE" mentality is a symptom of america's sickness! if there were more slogs posting more boobies, eventually we'd get to a more european view on this sort of thing, and the response would be "oh look, more boobies... what's the weather gonna be like tomorrow?"

Personally jameyb, I don't ever want to become so inured to the sight of boobies that all they make me think about is the weather.

calm down, Americains, this cover has a political content you are all ignroing (no interest perhaps?) and it is not about "boobies."

Last week Poland (the two twins are its president and foreign ministere) objected to a new constitution of Europe because Poland felt small nations like Poland should have voting power disproportionate to their population relative to larger states like Germany; they pointed out the Polish population would be much larger if Germany had not killed so many people in the Second World War. This violated a tabu, caused news sensation, but in the end they compromised.
So this magazine is referring to the twins' agreement to subordinate Poland to Europe (I believe it says ?Mother Europe," perhaps?) and perhaps is criticizing them? The nuance is obscure.
In all events I am thinking perhaps some persons wish to discuss the politics of this (is it not interesting they consdier a united constitution? ) in addition to the tres-americain fascination with "boobies." (These are not unusual to see on the Cote d'Azure, I may assure you.)
A la prochaine--

blah, blah, blah, they could have made that point without this sexist bullshit illustration. I doubt if she were male, they would show the twins fighting to give the guy a BJ. Please.

I think it's the funniest thing I've ever seen. And really, for a gal her age, Angela appears to be, uh, hanging in there quite nicely. Those boobies don't appear to be more than twenty-five years old. Unless you think there's any chance it's not...real....

I don't get the big deal over Merkel. She strikes me as rather drab looking.

Posted by neo-realist | June 29, 2007 7:50 PM

how in the hell is that image sexist? give me a freakin' break.

Posted by jameyb | June 29, 2007 8:37 PM

Is it just me, or is that the same guy on both teats? (or is it tits?)

They're twin brothers, the Kaczynskis. One's the President and one's the Prime Minister. They preside over a right-wing, nationalist, hardline Catholic government. Anti-gay, anti-semitic, etc. The Prime Minister, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, is strongly rumoured to be gay himself. "Sexism" is barely scratching the surface of the hate-filled, virulently intolerant social climate that is Poland today.

@14 well she is from East-Germany
