    Taught how to put soap on their bodies?!! Hahahahaha! Um, yeah, Sandusky’s going to jail for a long, long time. And I might try that one next time I want to entice a cutie into taking a shower with me where I intend to rape his cute little butt. OMG, this story just gets better, and better, and of course, completely more sick.

  2. Red says

    What a load a bull that Sandusky “excuse” is. There is no possible reason for a grown man to be showering with a kid.

    On another note, I guess that idiot in Bellingham who attacked that lesbian couple won’t try that again anytime soon.

  3. Rick says

    @Red You know, I have to say, I saw all my PE instructors naked when I was in junior high school and high school. Usually, they were changing out of their “street clothes” into their gym clothes, but on a few occasions, they did take showers with the students.

    So I don’t see it as all that bizarre that Sandusky would have been showering with a kid after they had been playing basketball or something.

    Not saying that he is innocent, but simply having taken a shower with a kid does not make him guilty, either.

    “So I don’t see it as all that bizarre that Sandusky would have been showering with a kid after they had been playing basketball or something.”

    Except he’s not accused of showering with boys, he’s accused of raping them in the shower, rather different. Innocent until proven guilty in the justice system, but his soap excuse isn’t doing him any favors unless you think it’s ok for men to soap up children in the showers cause, you know, that’s what sportsmen do.

  5. TJ says

    But if he did soap up the kids, it would be okay, because he was a manly man. Like the coaches I knew who RARELY showered with kids but when they did, they kept their distance and NEVER soaped us up. He just took it one, harmless, manly step further.

    So Madonna is releasing a CD? Someone save us-she’s been completely and utterly irrelevant for nigh on 26 years (save her autobiography ‘The Sex Book’-yet more rampant attention seeking) and even then only a media carved, ‘autotuned’ gimmick laden “success story”. If Madonna wants artistic credibility, she could at least learn how to sing.

  7. James says

    I’m really glad Julia set that date.

    I love Madonna… but I sincerely hate when musicians use those awfully spelled words in place of the correct way to spell it. What’s so wrong with naming it Give Me All Your Lovin’?
