SIR Richard Branson has revealed that he has taken Class A drugs and is a member of the ‘mile-high club’.The Virgin tycoon, whose airline was the first to introduce double beds on its planes, said he met a “very attractive lady” on a flight to Los Angeles when he was 19.

He told GQ magazine: “We got chatting and it went a bit further. And it was every man’s dream, to be honest.

“The problem with plane loos generally is that they are very small, and the acrobatics can’t take too long because there’s no room and people start banging on the door.”

In the interview with Piers Morgan, the former Mirror editor, the 57-year-old entrepreneur also admitted trying cocaine, Ecstasy, tantric sex and Viagra.

He added: “I took Ecstasy once, but it didn’t have a massive effect on me”.

Branson?  No!  You’re crazy!  I never would have guessed he would do that!

Branson Facts:

  • Offered a $25 million prize to the first feasible technology to reduce carbon dioxide levels in the air
  • Holds record for fastest crossing of the Atlantic by boat
  • Virgin Galactic
  • Located at 36°38’16” North, 93°15’18” West (36.637706, -93.254965)

THE call letters KUNT have landed at a yet-unbuilt low-power digital television station in Wailuku, Maui.

Alarmingly similar to a word the dictionary says is obscene, the call letters were among a 15-page list of new call letters issued by the Federal Communications Commission and released this week.

The same station owner also received KWTF for a station in Arizona.

From Skokie, Ill., comes a sincere apology “to anyone that was offended,” said Kevin Bae, vice president of KM Communications Inc., who requested and received KUNT and KWTF. It is “extremely embarrassing for me and my company and we will file to change those call letters immediately.”

Can somebody explain to me why the call letters KUNT are embarrassing?  It’s “KUNT” not “CUNT”.  Any similarity is implied by the mind of the person reading it. 

This is something I will never understand.  We (that’s a collective “we” as in society) are responsible for the dirty, sinful thoughts that something as harmless as the letters “KUNT” strung together spur in someone else’s mind.  Where did we sign up for that charge?  However it came upon us, I would like to be excused.  Thank you.

Dick Wad: James Bonomo


A former Mitsubishi executive is suing his ex-em ployer because a co-worker allegedly took a picture of his penis after a booze-fueled karaoke bash – and his boss compared it to an “Italian sausage.”

In his suit filed in Manhattan federal court last month, James Bonomo, a former paper sales manager for Mitsubishi International Corp., alleged that his career effectively ended after the humiliating incident during what should have been a routine business trip to China in April 2005.

No comment necessary…is it?
