A British man claimed that a shower gel burned his testicles after he used it. Raymond Cuss, 42, said that herbal-scented suds stripped off a layer of skin and left his privates glowing bright red. Mr Cuss bought this shower gel, marked like Dettol production, for 99 pence (48 Roubles. 1.55 USD. 1.15 Euros) in his home town of Gosport, Hampshire. The Telegraph quoted Mr Cuss as saying, “It was the first time I’d bought this particular shower gel, and chose it because it had the Dettol brand on the front, which I trusted. I had a shower to freshen up when I got home from work and suffered an horrendous reaction”. A doctor instructed Mr Cuss to soothe the inflamed skin by applying a moisturiser twice a day for a month, but he’s since recovered with no lasting physical damage. After this unfortunate incident, Raymond Cuss has received 1,000 UK Pounds (48,420 Roubles. 1,554 USD. 1,180 Euros) in an out-of-court settlement. Representatives of the Dettol company examined the bottle and directed them to the supplier. A Dettol spokesman said, “A review of the product packaging identified it as most likely a product originally made for the Korean market and imported as a grey market product”.

There’s more to babas than just hugs and home-made pierogies… bad guys, watch out!
One of the grapevine sent this on:
A man tried to nick a baba’s purse at Ambridge‘s Holy Ghost Russian church… and she beat the hell of the crook with it!
There must be something in the water in Ambridge (which is near Pittsburgh PA)… don’t be messing with the babas there… you’ll just open up a can of whup-ass on yourself and you’ll be SORRY.
On Friday, Police in Ambridge PA said a man pushed an 80-year-old woman to get to a church’s money jar. Investigators said the man went into Ss Peter and Paul Church, where parishioners were preparing for their Good Friday pierogi sale. Police said the man pushed an elderly woman aside to get to a money jar and fled from the building. Tim Depenhart of the Ambridge PA Police Department said, “He came in and ordered three dozen pierogis. As the woman was taking the order, he pushed her and grabbed the money. She actually fought back and grabbed him before he got away”. Investigators said there was a woman in a getaway truck waiting for him down the street. Police said that they’ve arrested the perp.

Ura for Baba! The Uniates aren’t nasty folks and they aren’t responsible for the noxious shenanigans of their bum-kissing hierarchy. That being said, Central and Eastern European babas and omas have the reputation of being feisty and ornery. As you see, that reputation isn’t just a fable… it’s for real… just like Baba herself. “She actually fought back and grabbed him before he got away”… now, that’s the ticket. Now, don’t go messing with baba (or oma or iaia)… she DOES know a thing or two…
Until the next time, that is…
