Something you may have picked up about Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi is that he loves to get with prostitutes. Bonus points if they're underage and no points if they're unfuckable lard-arses, who are by definition an exception to his rule. Some people have taken issue with Sil's penchant for sleeping with women 57 years his junior, with several suggesting that Italy's economic woes can in part be attributed to the premier's inability to focus on anything but his next fix. According to Vladimir Putin, such accusations are without merit and you want to know something else?
"However much they nag Signor Berlusconi for his special attitude to the beautiful sex, and by the way they nag him mainly because of jealousy, he has shown himself as a responsible statesman," Putin said at an international investment forum in Sochi, quoted by the state RIA Novosti news agency.
Sorry if you thought Putin couldn't see through you.
