Danish PM and Obama Proves Blondes Have More Fun Even at Mandela Funeral
Making the rounds across the world press is this hot social, gossipy,topic that took place at the somber, sad, funeral of Nelson Mandela. Usually, at any funeral, sadness and silence prevails as people make their way to the podium for a farewell speech. There usually is not laughing, having fun, in the normal manner as everyone is saddened. That is the contrast.
All around the Danish PM, Helle Thorning, or "Gucci Helle", as she is known for her glamor and expensive clothes, there were sad long expressions of grief. So, no wonder President Obama, PM Helle and UK PM Cameron have become icons for their selfie. Now, we all know that "blondes have more fun", at least that is what Clairol cosmetics wants the world to believe- and rightly so. It DOES seem that way.
The Danish PM is attractive and I guess, even at a funeral, there can be brief fun because life does continue even at a funeral. Many look upon the "selfie" flirtation as just that. Two guys flirting with an attractive blond. I get it. Men are men, titles go to the wayside. Women are women and the attractive ones receive more attention-good and bad.
I guess it is the event that makes this seem more flirtatious and gossipy. A national funeral of a world icon, on the world stage, in front of all sorts of cameras and video. It seems that the chemistry between the two men and woman speaks to human nature. One can really see the chemistry, despite them being world leaders, caused them to be "normal" briefly, even at Nelson Mandela's funeral. While all those around them were grieving and somber (just look at Mrs. Obama) these three leaders were like teens or younger adults-laughing and flirting during the selfie.
Mrs. Obama looks annoyed with her husbands antics or flirting, and then later, she actually sits between the Danish PM and President Obama. That speaks volumes of what is happening. The selfie by itself is jovial and some would say disrespectful. Of course, the gossip is, was Mrs. Obama aware of her husband's flirting with the Danish PM, and like any woman, pissed at this fact? Unless you see the last frame of the sequence, you might think she was not aware. But, last frame shows she knew, was furious with his flirtatious husband, and deliberately sat in-between them to stop it.
Can you imagine what they discussed about this? Oh boy.
