Photo of the day #41: Tigres VS Monterrey

Israel Jiménez seems far from pleased after scoring the own goal that sealed Tigres' defeat against arch-enemy Monterrey.

Top ranked Tigres was eliminated by #9 ranked and arch-rival Rayados de Monterrey in the Mexican Soccer League Quarterfinals. This is the third time in a row that Tigres is defeated by Monterrey in a playoff derby. More info.

Photo of the day #40: Wear sunscreen.

Jacob Zuma The Spear

Photo of the day #39: The Spear

This portrait of South African president Jacob Zuma by Brett Murray has triggered a scandal and even marches. It’s based on this portrait of Lenin but it also shows his penis. I think it’s cool and if anyone ever decides to paint me in this style with my package exposed, I’m all for it. Especially if they make my package that big.

More info on CNN, where – heaven forbid they show an abstract three color painting of a dick and offend a puritan reader – the painting is censored.

Photo of the day #35: Shakira hits on Shimon

These occasions are becoming less and less bizarre. Now Shakira is all over Shimon Peres. Piqué stands off-camera staring at them jealously. More here.
