Why I'm not moving to England

Maxim covergirl Sophie Anderton has a story about her in an English (link NSFW for adult subject matter and video!) paper that talks about the trials and tribulations of being a model in England:

Money is never far from her mind. She moaned about how there isn't as much money in modelling as there used to be. "The industry now is Russian girls who are willing to do it for £500 a day. So to pay for my fees a lot of people aren't willing to do so," said Sophie.

"I can command 25 grand a day, one shoot without all the advertising and stuff. But that's quite rare.

"For catalogues it used to be £10,000 a day and now its about £4,000 or £3,000. Then there is 20 per cent for the agency and 40 per cent for tax. It goes down rapidly."

Forty percent is what they take for taxes in England! No wonder the sun finally set on the British Empire, its citizens are being strangled by taxation and overregulation. As an interesting economics side note, it's also interesting to note the economic effect that competition (from the Russian models) has in bringing prices down.

Oh, and most of the story is about how she charges $20k (seriously) a night to have sex with her, that she has a regular coke dealer, and if she brings another girlfriend it's extra. But she also says that she'll include "the new 3rd base" for free if she's in the mood.

I didn't click on the link but I'm glad you are sticking around here. Your teeth will be grateful too.

It's the new 1st base, not 3rd base. I think the new 3rd base involves coprophilia of some sort (or maybe those videos of Japanese girls puking). I really don't understand girls.

That's American dollars. But the way the dollar has been falling she's only accepting euros now.


Since I've been up here, I haven't even gotten an at bat. (Not that there has been anything worth swinging at). What was that site with the Japanese Girls puking on each other?
