From Daily News Analysis India MELBOURNE: An Australian woman who underwent in-vitro fertilization has sued her doctor after she gave birth to twins instead of a single baby, claiming more than $332,000 for the cost of raising the second child till the age of 21. Testifying before the Supreme Court of the Australian Capital Territory on Tuesday, the teary 40-year-old mother said she told Dr Robert Armellin she wanted only one child in November 2003. But an embryologist under the doctor's supervision implanted two embryos, resulting in the birth of non-identical twins. Tango’s Take
From Reuters VENICE (Reuters) - Throwing rice at newly-weds will soon be banned in Venice as the city steps up its fight against pigeons soiling its squares and chipping away at monuments. The mayor of the canal city is preparing a measure to stop pigeons banqueting outside the central Palazzo Cavalli, where civil weddings are celebrated, municipal police chief Marco Agostini said on Monday. Tango’s Take Typical. The Italians, the world’s most unapologetic pasta eaters, are banning rice at weddings. What about Asian-Italians and Latin-Italians (if either exist)? What are they going to do at their weddings with dishes that require rice? Without the rice, arroz con pollo is just chicken, man. We sense some nefarious presence here. We wonder if Silvio Berlusconi owns any noodle companies.
From Reuters BERLIN (Reuters) - Staff at a German butcher's shop were shocked to discover a customer had hidden two sex toys in their sausages for transport to Dubai, police said Wednesday. "It was two latex dildos with a natural look," said a spokesman for police in the southwestern city of Mannheim. After shopping there earlier in the day, the man, who spoke broken English, returned to the butcher's with two large "Schwartenmagen" sausages. He asked a shop assistant to wrap and cool them until he departed for Dubai the next day. Tango’s Take This guy is lucky that they caught him on the German side. Music producer Dallas Austin got caught with some ya-yo (that’s cocaine, whitey) in Dubai. He would have done jail time were it not for the intervention of some friends from Washington and that was only going to go up his nose. Hi-ooooooooo! Thank God he didn’t try to send a hamster.

From LiveScience Whether we’re looking for someone to date or sizing up a potential rival, our eyes irresistibly lock on to good-looking people, a new study finds. Participants, all heterosexual men and women, fixated on highly attractive people within the first half-second of seeing them. Single folks ogled the opposite sex, of course. But those in committed relationships more often eyed beautiful people of the same sex. Tango’s Take
From Monsters and Critics Courtney Love and Pete Doherty have sparked romance rumours after the pair shared a kiss when Love visited him in rehab. The former Hole singer, a former drug addict, went to see the Babyshambles star at the Wiltshire clinic where he is battling to get clean. Pete was allowed to leave the grounds with Courtney and the pair shared a kiss after a budget meal at a British pub chain. Tango’s Take We just threw up in our mouths a little bit. We’re not sure what to add to this. There’s just something about romance rumors, British pub chains, budget meals plus Courtney L and Pete D that we’re really uncomfortable with. Really, really uncomfortable. We’re sure that she’s trying to help but is this a little like sending Rosie O’Donnell to guard the buffet?
