Silvio Berlusconi Saves Greatest Act Of Public Service For Last

Viva la bunga bunga parties.

Let the call go forth across the land: Bunga bunga parties—even those involving underage women you may or may not have paid to have sex with—are for once and all time legal in Italy. And just in the nick of time, for the great Silvio just happens to have come into some more free time, having completed his community service for tax fraud just last week.

The Court of Cassation rejected prosecutors' appeal and confirmed Berlusconi's acquittal on charges he paid for sex with an underage prostitute during raunchy, sex-fueled "bunga bunga" parties at his Milan villa, and used his influence to cover it up.

Of course, Silvio’s not exactly completely free to get his 78-year-old freak on just yet. For while the high court signed off on bunga bunga and politely asking the police to spare his young lady-friend the indignity of a shoplifting charge, it remains to be seen just how much of a cover-up Italian courts will stand. Probably a lot of cover-up.

Despite Tuesday's high court victory, Berlusconi's legal woes aren't over: Milan prosecutors are also investigating him for allegedly paying off witnesses in the "bunga-bunga" case, and he's still on trial in Naples for alleged political corruption.

A Running List Of Things That Do It For Silvio Berlusconi

Should you ever find yourself in a situation in which knowledge pertaining to the arousal triggers of the former Italian prime minister would come in handy, whether it's bar trivia night or one of his bunga bunga parties, try and remember that Silvio likes prostitutes dressed as: 1. Nuns 2. Communists 3. President Obama One of the young women who attended Silvio Berlusconi's "bunga bunga" parties told a court on Friday that she dressed up as a burlesque version of U.S. President Barack Obama to entertain the former Italian prime minister. In testimony during a trial against the 75-year-old Berlusconi on charges of paying for sex with an underage prostitute, Marysthell Polanco said she had also dressed as prosecutor Ilda Boccassini. Boccassini, known as "Ilda the Red" because of her hair color and what Berlusconi says is her communist political sympathies, is one of the prosecutors in the ongoing trial. "I dressed up as Boccassini with a toga to make him laugh, and also as Obama," Polanco told the court...Previous witnesses who attended his parties painted a more sordid picture, including nudity, mimicked sex, and one described two women wearing nasty versions of nuns' habits performing a raunchy pole dance.
