"No regrets marrying 13yr old girl" Yerima

"About three years ago, I married out two of my daughters. One was 16 and the other was 17. And in December this year God willing, I will give out another of my 16-year-old daughter in marriage again. And nobody on earth can stop that marriage by the grace of God. Her name is Hafsat, she is currently a student in Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria. The potential husband is in the university in Cairo. As soon as it is December, the marriage will take place.  I have not broken any law and all I have done is guided by Islamic injunctions which are fully recognized by the Nigerian Constitution. I give out my daughters in marriage when they get husband. For example, if my fourth daughter, who is 14 now, gets a husband, I will gladly offer her to him. You see, nobody can dictate to me how I run my family or how I give my daughters out in marriage. People should mind their business." Paedophile Yerima tells Thisday Newspapers.

Oh dear...oh dear me...isn't he delicious?

This is the reason I'm still single. This is the kind of body I'd like to lay next to forever. The problem is, I only see men like this on mag covers, movies, and my dreams. *Sigh*
I'm too old to be dreaming huh? lol
But I hear there are lots of guys like this in Yankee...maybe I should relocate to that country for two months and find one...:-)

I saw this interview with Victoria Beckham where she was asked why she likes to sleep in the nude. She replied "If you slept in the same bed with David Beckham, would you sleep in a nightgown?"

No Victoria, I wouldn't. You lucky bitch...lol

Just kidding. The heart/soul/mind of a man is more important than his physical appearance. Yeah right, Linda. lol

All dead. Victims of the Cumbria shooting...

Victims: (from top to bottom) Garry Purdham, 31, Darren Rewcastle, Isaac Dixon, 65, Jane Robinson, 66, Susan Hughes, 57, Michael Pike, 64, Jamie Clark, 23, and David Bird, 52.

A British taxi driver, Derrick Bird, 52, (pictured left) went on gun rampage across western Cumbria two days ago and killed 12 people, including his twin brother and family lawyer. He's believed to have killed his brother David in his bed at his home in Lamplugh. He then lay in wait for the family lawyer, Kevin Commons and shot him too. Neither crime had been reported by 10.30 am when he drove his Citroen Picasso minicab back to the Whitehaven taxi park where he worked and gunned down Darren Rewcastle. Several other cab drivers narrowly escaped death. After this, Bird sped through villages executing complete strangers at random. His terrifying rampage ended only when he shot himself at a Lake District beauty spot.

Bird killed 12 people and injured 11.

Such a sad sad story!
May their souls rest in peace..amen.

Claudia Schiffer - The white woman in black-face

Claudia Schiffer has been accused of racial insensitivity after appearing on a magazine cover made up as a black woman.

The 39-year-old supermodel wore dark foundation and an afro wig in the shots taken by celebrated fashion designer and photographer Karl Lagerfeld.

Now the black folks are mad. They call the photos tasteless, offensive and insensitive.

The white folks call it ART! What do you call it?

Items of clothing men find unattractive

I read this article written by a Liz Jones on MSN today and found it quite interesting. I want to share.

They are items of clothing women think are fashionable, but men hate.
Liz Jones wrote the article, Linda Ikeji provided the pictures.
Check it out...

Trying to impress a man? Then don't wear any of the trendy items listed below. Because according to a survey on MSN, guys just can't stand them. A lot of men say they are total turn-offs


Headbands: Men don't like anything in our hair. Period! They like to be able to run their fingers through our hair (or the weave) without impediment.


Gladiator sandals: Men simply detest these. They take ages to put on and take off. And men think they make us appear short.

Jumpsuits: Men don't like it because they make us look shapeless. A guy was quoted as saying "Jumpsuits are the ultimate in women-dressing-for-other-women. Confusing and overly clever. At best you look like a toddler, at worst, my mum in the 70's"

Leggings: Men say the problem with leggings is that there's no mystery. Every contour is revealed. Another big moan from men is that too may women wear them, no matter their shape. which means too many sausage legs.



Dungarees: Who wants a woman who resembles a builder? Or who hides her breasts and waist behind a heavy sail-cloth of hard, nasty denim? 

Oversized sunglasses: A man said "If I see a woman wearing this, I know she's hiding something. A drink problem? A lie? Besides, you can never kiss a woman wearing a pair."

Tuxedo: Men are simple creatures. They like to see our legs, arms and maybe a bit of cleavage. What they don't want is braces and shirt studs.

Men don't like Gladiator sandals? Really? Na them sabi...I loves it. I wears it.
There's nothing else on this list I wear.
But this begs the question - Should women dress to impress men?
Do we dress to impress men?
Other women perhaps? 
Or should we dress for us?
Please share your thoughts...

Sharia Council Drags Mark, Bankole, NHRC to Court For Invading Senator Yerima's Right to His Family Privacy

This is too sad. Pitiful. And a shame!

According to reports in the news, there's a group called the Registered Trustees of Supreme Council for Sharia in Nigeria and they have dragged the heads of the two chambers of the National Assembly, and the National Human Right Commission (NHRC) to an Abuja High Court.

You know why? Because they support the marriage of Senator Ahmed Yerima to a 13 year old girl.
