MCHINJI, Malawi -- The father of the 13-month-old boy Madonna wants to make part of her family criticized human- rights groups who have challenged how the adoption is being handled and said his child should stay with the star.
Yohane Banda said yesterday he had entrusted his son to a Malawian orphanage after his wife died, saying he was too poor to raise him alone. Now, he says, Madonna has given the boy a chance to have a family.
"Where were these people when David was struggling in the orphanage? These so-called human-rights groups should leave my baby alone," he said.
"As father, I have OK'd this, I have no problem. The village has no problem. Who are they to cause trouble? Please let them stop."
Ben Mulroney, Canada's UNICEF ambassador, also spoke out yesterday, saying he hopes celebrities have their hearts in the right place when it comes to adopting African orphans, but fears overseas adoption is just another Tinseltown trend.

I'm not sure what was more amusing about that link -- the photos themselves or all the bitchy comments on that guys balls. LOL.
Either way, worth the "naughty" little work break.

I'm confused - are low hangers *bad*?
The comments on the link all bust on the dude for having saggy or low-hangin balls, but my experienc with (gay) guys is that they like em low.
Which is it? [I ask this in all seriousness]

Envy is never pretty. Gay guys, like str8 women and everyone else, have a wide variety of attributional preferences. There are also fads, as with chest hair shaving or not, that go in cycles. Listening to juvenile-minded str8 males talking about women's breasts all day long gets a bit irksome, so I say we should strike back! and comment on things like pectorals and abs in public.

Although I generally hate anything having to do with either of the Hilton's, this was worth it. Hot! And low hangers or high? Who cares. I wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating Oreos.
