Mmmmmmm Lesbians

So at least it's not just Americans who launch frivolous lawsuits - the below is from a article.
Three islanders from Lesbos told a court Tuesday that gay women insult their home's identity by calling themselves lesbians.

Paul Thymou, who lives on the Greek island Lesbos, protests at a gay group using the word "lesbian" in its title. The plaintiffs -- two women and a man -- are seeking to ban a Greek gay rights group from using the word "lesbian" in its name.

Also known as Mytilini, Lesbos was the home of the ancient poet Sappho, who praised love among women. It is a major travel destination for gay women. The Homosexual and Lesbian Community of Greece "causes confusion by using a geographic term in connection with (the group's) special character and social action," said Dimitris Papadelis, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs.

A spokeswoman for the group accused the plaintiffs of homophobia.

"I believe ... the other party's intentions were purely racist," Evangelia Vlami said. "They showed that what bothers them is a specific sexual orientation."

"What will they do next, sue the United Nations? They, too, use the term lesbian," Vlami said.

Plaintiff Dimitris Lambrou has insisted the lawsuit "is not an aggressive act against gay women."Lawyers from both sides are to submit written arguments on Wednesday, and the court is expected to issue its decision in the next six months.
In other signs of the pending apocalypse, Gennifer Flowers and Paula Jones are offering Internet viewers the lurid details of encounters they claim they had with former President Clinton -- for $1.99 a pop.

The women, who gained notoriety in the early 1990s after claiming to have had sexual encounters with Clinton when he was governor of Arkansas, have created a Web site offering videos of their thoughts on Clinton, his wife Hillary and other matters. Each video segment is available for $1.99.
Hey ladies - Hillary is out. No one gives a shit. I tried to find the website, but gave up after 5 minutes, since, hey - I DON'T GIVE A SHIT! In the words of Jack Nicholson's Colonel Jessup from A Few Good Men, "I'm a fair guy, but this fucking heat is making me absolutely crazy." I feel the need to quote that whenever the temperature soars to inhuman levels here in New York - 96 degrees in NYC yesterday!
