At least when comes to covering Silvio Berlusconi’s now-delayed trial on his infamous “bunga bunga” parties with then 17-year old nightclub dancer Ruby Rubacuori. Lest you not got the not-so-subtle jibe at the Italian prime minister’s virility with the article’s headline, “Berlusconi’s Prostitution Scandal Adjourned after Seven Minutes,” it is also helpfully subtitled “Legalis Interruptus”.
Berlusconi insists he didn’t have sex with Ruby despite paying her some 7,000 euros. Der Spiegel does its best to keep a straight face when it notes that “Berlusconi’s defense team insists that the parties merely involved dinner, movies, karaoke and Scrabble [emphasis added].”
Must have been some game of Scrabble!
