Well this is just a great photo, right? It’s the part of a shoot when the photographer tells everyone to “go nuts.” For Italy’s Silvio Berlusconi this means “molest everyone,” while China’s Hu Jintao decides to look as boring as possible and the Arab guy gives a shady, mischievous look, just to freak out Americans. There is too much to say about this, so LET’S JUST DO THIS SHIT: BLINGEE CONTEST. RIGHT NOW. TIME. TO. THROW. DOWN. Send submissions (links and/or attachments) to, subject line “I <3 GORDON BROWN’S ANAL POISON,” by 4:30 ET (ONE HOUR) 5:00 ET and we will post some of the best. The prize is an “iPod.” [TNR]

    …is that Michael Steele in the upper right hand corner?!

  • The Cold Sea

    Berlusoni: Looka ata me! I’m a negro!

  • TGY

    Wild and Embarrassing. A little.

    So, that’s how they ‘go crazy’ in Saudi Arabia, eh? Looks like he wants to draw his drapes for greater anonymity.

  • TGY

    Barry is just a retard like the rest of us, which is partly why we love him. Is that so wrong?

  • AngryBlakGuy

    “and the Arab guy gives a shady, mischievous look, just to freak out Americans.”

    I disagree, that looks more like his “Flirtatious come and kiss me you bad, bad boy” look!

  • Fox n Fiends

    We’re still rich! High-five!

  • magic titty

    So Gordon Brown looks that stuffy all the time, huh?
    [re=279712]The Cold Sea[/re]: Win.

    And Gordon Brown continues to be the most boring man on earth.

  • Nerdalicious

    Sitcom for the cool thumbs up dudes in the middle, anyone?

  • Bearbloke

    BRING ON THE BLINGEES!!! Just watch out for the Soviet judges, they always give low scores…

  • Nerdalicious

    Keep the red & white headress dude in full eye shot whatever you do!

    Can anyone guess which countries are legalizing marijuana? (hint middle 3)

  • TGY

    Oh, and Gordon? Two words: ‘Brown Nose’.

  • Delicious

    Somebody has their hand down Medvedev’s trousers.

  • randomsausage

    wife swapping to surely follow later this evening

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    That pose reminds me of Barry’s speechwriter groping Hillz’s cardboard cutout. Where exactly is Barry’s left hand?

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=279711]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: [re=279721]Rush[/re]: Jimmie Walker.

  • Nerdalicious

    Yeah Hu isn’t down with thumbs up smiling shit. “Rest of G20 Summiteers Fat, Lazy & Hepped Up On That Legalized Marijuana, Me Hu, I here to wook on evil plot with Medvedev to subjugate the woold.”

  • SayItWithWookies

    This means the US, Italy and Russia will be invading the Ukraine at dawn.

  • Nerdalicious

    [re=279736]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]:
    Berlusoni’s thumbs up & HUGE smile sez all!

  • TGY

    [re=279733]Delicious[/re]: Yes, this could be, since he appears to be Berlusconi’s ventriloquist dummy.

  • Country Club Jihadi

    [re=279711]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Henry Waxman in blackface?

  • tunamelt

    I will actually enter this contest. If I don’t win, I have nothing to live for. Fact.

  • Yes You Can Own A Piece of History

    OMG! They are totally going to crack up over this at the closing dinner slide show. I wonder who will win the conference door prize?

  • bitchincamaro

    Me no speak Blingee. Me speak Crayola on my screen.

  • Rush


    Be positive, you’ll always have Socialism and falling Soviet space debris.

  • Reefpilot

    Ah, the word “semi-formal…” our chapter was so goddamn broke most of the time our semi-formals involved going to the local seafood fry pit and having the first ten dollars of our meals covered. Dates too…. if you had a date.

  • bitchincamaro

    [re=279747]tunamelt[/re]: I gotta extra eye-pod, Tuna.

  • Min

    Oh, for heaven’s sake. The keg was for after the photo shoot.

  • Tommy Says Soooo, Jugdish!

    Apparently a couple of guys are happy they found their tickee for their washee.

  • tunamelt

    [re=279759]bitchincamaro[/re]: I’ll take it. (I’m assuming that’s a metaphor. If it’s an actual iPod, I’m less enthused.)

  • sleepy

    [re=279735]randomsausage[/re]: i’m not say’n, i’m just say’n, if it’s wife swapping we’re talkin’, berlusconi’s got dibs on mrs mededved

  • MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend

    This is the greatest and most important contest ever. Here is my unworthy contribution:

  • tunamelt

    [re=279754]Reefpilot[/re]: The only boyfriend I had in college belonged to a Christian frat that didn’t allow dancing or drinking. Most boring frat invite ever.

  • BigDupa

    What’s Ward Connelly doing in that photo? Has affirmative action become a global problem?

  • The Cold Sea

    I just sent a cold blingee to tips. Yeah.

  • frailamerica

    I bet it’s just that Berlusconi doppelganger from that video:

  • norbizness

    The freaks come out at night
    The freaks come out at night (HUT HUT HUT HUT)

  • shortsshortsshorts

    I just put 20 minutes of my life into a Blingee. GO ECONOMY GO!

  • Schadenfried

    Dammit! Fuckety McFuck! I’m at work right now and I can’t compete in the contest!!!

  • Magnus Maximus

    Looks like someone is flashing Gordon Brown off-camera!

  • freakishlystrong

    [re=279766]MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend[/re]: That is extremely dope…

  • tunamelt

    [re=279770]The Cold Sea[/re]: Me too!

    This is the first time I figured out how the blingee website worked.

  • Nerdalicious

    Holy Crap! Russia’s really “opened up” haven’t they?

  • CorkPopper

    [re=279766]MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend[/re]: Oooh, good one.

  • Nerdalicious

    Fan f*****g tastic!

  • digibal235

    It’s a friggin Mentos commercial.

  • tunamelt

    [re=279778]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: You do not have a life.

    Seriously though, can the second prize just be like, some hobo beans and grain alcohol. Because I wouldn’t mind winning that.

  • The Unfairman

    [re=279711]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: He looks like a cross between Mikey Mike Steeleio and Henry Waxman.

  • The Unfairman

    [re=279746]Country Club Jihadi[/re]: Damn you!

  • chascates

    If they don’t go on tour they’d better release a DVD!
    G20 ON TOUR, rock on!

  • JohnnyMeatworth
  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=279792]tunamelt[/re]: You are right. Blog, Wonkette and now Blingee. I should hire a Messican, illegally, and then join Barry’s cabinet.

  • strikethrough

    This is my very first blingee, and my first comment since you left gawker… obviously I had a reason to procrastinate.

    I’m just sorry that the crunky Muammar al-Gaddafi isn’t there too.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=279790]digibal235[/re]: Fresh and full of life!

  • ColHeightsChic

    Angryblackguy: The nerd in me feels the need to let you know that’s Ethiopia’s Prime Minister, Meles.

    He’s trying to look amused, but I suspect he’s a tad bit peeved that he’s been a black world leader for so many years and nobody ever wanted to take a frat-boy pic with him. Ethiopia may just have to invade Kenya now and kidnap Barry’s 14 illegitimate siblings.

  • blinky_twinkie

    Just sent mine in! W00t!

  • TGY

    [re=279807]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: You must also cheat on your taxes.

  • tunamelt

    [re=279807]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Are you squatting somewhere illegally? That would help, too.

  • Red Zeppelin

    [re=279746]Country Club Jihadi[/re]: FTW! I couldn’t quite figure out who he reminded me of, but you are exactly right.

  • Hart88

    Ladies and gentlemen, I’ll be brief. The issue here is not whether we broke a few rules, or took a few liberties with our female party guests – we did.

  • eoberhauser


  • assistant/atlas

    Just in case I am not the winner, I must share with you:

  • revhatchell

    can you hear that? ‘louie louie’ in the background!! we’re all going to be rich again!!! weeeeeeeee!

  • Lazy Media

    This seems to be the Blingee contest that gets us non-blingers off the bench. My first ever, and I SWEAR I hadn’t seen MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend’s first:

  • tunamelt

    [re=279832]Hart88[/re]: Thank you sir, may I have another.

  • MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend

    [re=279840]Lazy Media[/re]: I can haz copyrite?

    Just kidding!! :-)

  • OffTheRecord

    Damn elitist job. I want to make a blingee. Why does my work computer have to be lame?

  • Lazy Media

    Whoever wins has to tell us what an “iPod” is.

  • NoWireHangers

    5PM? EASTERN!? I was at lunch! there’s no TIME! NO TIMMMMMMMMMMMME!

  • facehead

    In before the buzzer?

    Advance apologies to anyone who thought of it first, didn’t have time to scan the competition.

  • sweetcandy
  • mayhemily

    [re=279840]Lazy Media[/re]: Yup, I finally got off my duff for this one. That’s some cold leadin’ happening right there.

  • sweetcandy

    What happen to my post?…….if I double posted, sorry.


  • Dramatist

    Does anyone else wonder if Berlusconi, Medvedev, and Obama knew each other when they were kids and traveled along some railroad tracks one summer with River Phoenix to see a dead body?

  • twowheeljunkie

    Since nowirehangers hasn’t posted yet. I assume she is busy creating the
    winning blingee right now.

  • Dramatist

    Also, that’s quite a limp wrist, Dmitry.

  • tunamelt

    [re=279851]facehead[/re]: Okay, that’s fucking hilarious.

  • Nerdalicious

    These blingees are all so great I can’t imagine picking one. Hilarious.

  • Obamaton

    I can’t believe someone with better photoshop skills than I hasn’t put the “shocker” on Berlusconni’s right hand yet.

  • Red Zeppelin

    Bros before Hos!

  • picadillythirds
  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=279856]Dramatist[/re]: Yes. And Dmitry grew up to play Wesley Crusher. Which explains quite a bit, actually.

  • Jean Hotman, Marquis de Villers-St-Paul

    Well, here’s my contribution to the noble cause.

  • lennixlewis

    This is mine! Now that I’ve looked at others, it’s a little sparse. But I only had twenty minutes because of my West Coast (is the best coast) status.

  • vdoll

    Newell, you are TEH SUXOR! I leave for one fucking hour to go and renew my medical marri gee juana license and you up and pull the MOST EXCELLENT BLINGEE COMPETITION EVAR shit on me and I can’t play for a chance to win your damn socialist iPod which I could have sold for a can of Hobo Beans. NO FAIR.

    Doesn’t matter anyways cause[re=279943]Atheist Nun[/re]: is clearly the winnar. Even with the presence of Jar Jar Binks it is the winnar.

  • smartypants

    Y’all stop playin. Their over there on RedState planning a march of some kind. Something about

    ‘Course that would mean missing the Tax Day Sale at Walmart. And one would actually have somewhere. And buy tea bags instead of Nestea.

    But still…

  • vdoll

    [re=279766]MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend[/re]: Damn, just now saw your MOST OFF DA HOOK BLINGEE and I’d have to say it is the winnar. Also.

  • Nerdalicious

    Oh well, here’s mine anyhoo. I’m a blingee virgin.

  • Nerdalicious

    I wanted to put Queen’s Bitch on Brown’s suit but I didn’t know how to use the text.

  • problemwithcaring

    [re=279892]Atheist Nun[/re]: Still awesome.

  • DustBowlBlues

    I just realized why the G20 is so much fun. There weren’t any Republicans there. John Boner and Mitch (no lips )McConnell make Hu look like Mr. Chuckles and the scary terrorist a character from PeeWee’s Playhouse. (I mean, the scary terrorist in with the thing draped over his head).

  • smartypants

    [re=280050]DustBowlBlues[/re]: Boner is HOT, though. He is SO Western Ken Doll. Who’s hotter than that? Uh-oh…damn my fascist neighbor and his Military Special vodka.

  • Atheist Nun

    [re=279979]Nerdalicious[/re]: [re=279981]problemwithcaring[/re]: Thanx!
