Torino Tip of the Day I

If you're ever in Torino, Italy you'll find this tip quite helpful. In Italy, a "Tabbacheria" or "Tobacco Store" sells way more than cancer-causing agents. In fact, they sell everything from prepaid cellphone cards to loose women, to drinks and even pastries. So, if you're looking for a miscellaneous and sundried item, look no further than your local tobacco store, conveniently marked with a large letter "T."

OK, I have to ask. Are the "loose women" on display in the store or outside the store? I could believe the latter in a place like Vegas, but if you're suggesting this merchandise is available IN the store, then that's just bizarre!

"loose women" you mean, like they just completed some calisthenics?

Yes, I was referring to women who had just appropriately stretched before running a 5 or 10K.

I'm going to venture out on a limb here and say that the cost of human dignity is actually the same in all countries, even if people buy and sell themselves for different prices in different places.

So, in the U.S., the cost might be more like, "How much to make my own rap video?" or "I hope my kids never find out," whatever that works out to in dollars. I don't have a squander-personhood-and-deny-value-as-human-being button on my calculator. (Cheap calculator.)

Given the link, I can only hope that the term "loose women" refers to women who've been stretching before a 5K or 10K!
