I haven’t jumped on the Lady Gaga train yet. But Kid Cudi has. His remix of LG’s “Poker Face” is called “I Poke Her Face” and features Cudi, Kanye + Common all spiting clever fellatio innuendo’s. Listen/download here. Cute, funny, uncool? Thoughts ladies? {Vulture}

Californian Eight-year-old Sandra Cantu’s body was found in a suitcase in a dairy farm pond close to home yesterday. This happens just as the Casey Anthony (the Orlando, FL more suspected of murdering her toddler) evidence photos and videos are released, showing her chuckling after being charged. {CNN} {Orlando Sentinel}

Last week the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) placed Costa Rica, Malaysia, the Philippines and Uruguay on its blacklist of tax havens. This week all four countries have agreed to adopt its tax transparency regulations. {BBC}

I remember when South African reggae star Lucky Dube died in October ’07 after being shot during a hijacking. He had just come to Turks and Caicos, where I was living, and I missed his show. Well the South Africa court just sentenced three men to life in prison for the murder. {YardFlex}

Peru judges are getting ready to deliver their verdict in the trial of former President Alberto Fujimori, charged with “two death-squad massacres which killed 25 people in the early 1990s.” If convicted he faces up to 30 years in prison. That seems quite mild for 25 lives. {BBC}

Happy Tuesday. If you get down, just watch this Reeces Peanut Butter Egg commercial, in time for easter. So simple but it makes me giggle every time.
