An April Fool's column from the Columbus, GA Ledger-Enquirer. Made me laugh.
Neighbours Lower Nazi Flag
This woman claims she didn't know what the flag was, but her baby daughter liked the bright colours, so she flew it. She's finally taken it down after enough protest went on. What kind of rock do you have to live under not to know what a Nazi flag stands for? Now, I'm all for getting the stigma off of the swastika (it was a symbol of good and warmth long before that sawed-off goofball took it for his political party), but damn, come on.
A UK magazine is reporting that LED ZEPPELIN singer Robert Plant claims he used to watch live sex shows with clean-cut ABBA stars Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson.
Plant says he used to enjoy drinking in X-rated bars with the Swedish stars and his LED ZEPPELIN sidekick Jimmy Page.
At the time, in late 1978, Plant and Page were recording ZEPPELIN's "In Through the Out Door" album in ABBA's Stockholm, Sweden, studio with colleagues John Bonham and John Paul Jones.
Plant has told a Swedish TV show that Ulvaeus and Andersson used to accompany them to local sex clubs to get away from their wives — ABBA stars Agnetha Faltskog and Frida Lyngstad.
Plant said, "I knew Benny and Bjorn very well. Jimmy and I were hanging around with them most nights.
"There were some really good clubs. People would go to bed on circle-shaped mattresses in front of us.
"Men and women would start having sex while we were having a drink."
However, an ABBA spokesperson has denied Plant's lurid story: "They've never been to any sex club with Robert Plant."
Thanks to igiggedwitdanny for that one!
