This picture comes with an excellent rhyme

This week, I was invited to a conference in Florence - for the Arts - an industry in which women are prominent (but mostly cuz it's so low-paying, like everywhere else). But once again, to hear a bunch of guys rattle on - generally reading from their pre-prepared scripts unless of course, they're making ad lib sexist jokes.
Then, a friend told me of a meeting he had in Amsterdam - between all Italians also attending a conference. Turns out one of the two parties was a pretty serious, straight-laced fellow. The other party, in order to 'test his mettle' decided that they'd see what he was made of. And so, the dinner quickly diverted to the Red Light District. I guess, if he could bag a whore, he would bag the business.
This happens the world over -- in fact, escorts doing just their job is pretty standard fare anywhere -- but you sometimes wonder, where the dividing line between upright behaviour in business ends and PMs 'defending their lifestyle' as a model example of a successful businessman cum politician begins.
Perhaps Berlusca can turn the Zipper Problem to his advantage: And start by zipping up his mouth.
