...it is the 47th birthday of Boy George, lead singer of Culture Club. In the 1980s, millions of adoring teenage girls were shocked to discover that George was not entirely heterosexual, and in fact, that his songs of longing were written about his relationship with the handsome drummer of the band. Determined not to be fooled in this way again, the young female fans' passions turned quickly to the more manly, George Michael, pictured here with bandmate, Andrew Ridgley.
...it is the 80th anniversary of the birth of murderous twat, Che Guevera. Fittingly, Guevera, who gave his life to the cause of destroying capitalism, is now a brand. His likeness adorns mugs, hoodies, lighters, t-shirts, key chains, wallets, baseball caps, bandannas, tank tops, club shirts, couture bags, denim jeans, herbal tea, and panties. Guevera once predicted that the GDP of Cuba would exceed that of the United States by 1980.
