Gay couple Carlos and Harald, both living with HIV, made headlines when they joined the cast of Germany's 'Big Brother.' Their arrival resulted in the immediate exit of another castmate, who refused to live with the pair because they were sick (he later claimed he would have left regardless of the condition, be it HIV or cancer, as he didn't want to be around people with any medical condition).
Well, one half of the couple is back in the news, this time being accused of biting six people during a Gay pride parade in Berlin.
A police spokeswoman said that, "The man was taken down from the float by the police. He was brought in to the detention centre for identification work and then released.”
When asked, Harald claimed “it was self-defence! I was insulted and beaten. I had wanted to get my plastic bag from the float. All of a sudden, someone attacked me from behind.
"I was being held in a headlock and couldn’t breathe. That’s when I bit. I’m very sorry if I’ve harmed people. ... At that moment, I wasn’t thinking that I could infect others.”
Gay Pride is for celebrating, people. Not for biting. Biting is bad!

Beyond the bad acting and the awesome bodies, we think there's a message somewhere in this video ...
A couple of marketing geniuses realized that their veggie fare, sold from a food van, might sell better with a little spice. So for every vegetarian burger purchased they threw in a free porn DVD.
The town of Driffield in the United Kingdom was unaware about the giveaway until some prude complained. The police went undercover. The owners were caught with their pants down, figuratively speaking.
"The van had been operating for about two weeks,” said Sergeant Dave Jenkins. “We received complaints that free porn DVDs were being offered to everyone who spent 5 pounds or more on beer and burgers. Undercover officers made test purchases and found this to be true before Saturday night's operation when the caravan was seized. We won't tolerate this because a youngster could have been given the DVDs.”
When police arrived to make an arrest, the guys were even playing porn in the van.
“It is unbelievable customers were being offered porn DVDs with their beer and burgers at an outlet that did not even have the necessary licenses,” said Jenkins.
That's one hell of a happy meal!

The GOP in Texas are taking a stand, and it happens to be on the back of the gay community (and anyone who supports it). The 2010 platform promotes criminalizing sodomy and would jail anyone conducting a same-sex marriage.
“We oppose the legalization of sodomy," the GOP stated. "We demand that Congress exercise its authority granted by the U.S. constitution to withhold jurisdiction from the federal courts from cases involving sodomy.”
And: “We support legislation that would make it a felony to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple and for any civil official to perform a marriage ceremony for such.
“We believe that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society, contributes to the breakdown of the family unit, and leads to the spread of dangerous, communicable diseases."
We would blame Sarah Palin for the dumbing down of politics, but we're sure these particular players have been lifelong members of the Idiots Only Club.
