2 Fer 1 Deal Today..


wo Fer One... that's right, today only you get 2 articles for the price of 1 article. The first article is related to an article that I did the a week ago about the female topless parade in Swaziland... remember? Well it seems that even the King gets involved. Read below:

For his next queen, who will become his 13th wife, King Mswati III of Swaziland has a pick of 50,000 virgins who presented themselves at a topless parade.

"It's as if the girls are going on an auction sale with the king picking," said Mario Masuku, leader of the banned opposition party. The king will pick his new queen after further review of the video of the festivities.

The portly 37-year-old monarch seemed pleased after viewing the bevy of teenage "flowers" at the Monday Umhlanga, or the Reed Dance, annual festivities. Swaziland ranks as the country with the world's highest known rates of HIV/AIDS infection.

The girls danced, twirled and pounded the earth outside the royal kraal, proclaiming their willingness to become the wife of the last absolute monarch in sub-Saharan Africa, Britain's Telegraph reported. "We are happy, we are healthy and we are alone," sang thousands of tuneful, high-pitched voices. "We are the flowers of the Swazi people."

King Mswati has 27 children from his 12 wives. The Umhlanga is the highlight of Swaziland's traditional calendar. Every chief in the country of 1.17 million people dispatches a group of teenage virgins to the royal kraal.


econd article... Be on the lookout!! Police in Ohio are working on an urgent "missing persons" case -- finding a capuchin monkey before the circus leaves town.

"He ran around once before in Florida during a storm, but he came back the next morning. I'm hoping he'll do that again," he said. Dillion ran off into the woods Monday after he was frightened by a train whistle, his trainer, Philip Hendricks, told the Cincinnati Enquirer.

"One moment he was on my shoulder and the train whistle blew and the next moment he was gone," Hendricks said. Hendricks and Dillion are one of the acts in the Hendricks Bros. Circus, which is playing this week in Springdale, north of Cincinnati. The circus is scheduled to move on Thursday.

Dillion is described as 2 feet tall, weighing about 8 pounds and wearing blue pants and a leash. Hendricks said he is usually friendly and confident around people but suggests that if anyone spots him they should leave him alone and call police.

Observations and Questions
Ok... Remember when I mentioned in the other article that we should also celebrate Umhlanga here... and suggested everyone send me topless photos of themself? I haven't received any yet. And as far as the poor monkey... how does he know to return to the circus if he's never been in that city before?
