    Note to vacationers to India -- do not share a stage kiss with a Bollywood starlet

    "The judge watched a video recording of Gere kissing Shetty and found him guilty of violating Indian laws against public obscenity, the lawyer, Poonam Chand Bhandari, said.

    Groups of men had burned and kicked straw effigies of Gere and Shetty in sporadic protests across the country after newspapers published the picture of the kiss on their front pages and TV channels aired visuals of the event."


    I wonder if the newspapers and TV stations in question will also be reprimanded for displaying such an 'obscene' act...

    Hinduism is obviously a religion of violence.

    Vishnu and his friends reject your assertion.

    By the many arms of Vishnu, I swear it is a lie.

    So does this mean he isn't going to be on The Daily Show tonight, as scheduled?

    Is the daily show filmed in India? If not, he'll probably be there.

    Unless, of course, India gets an extradition order for him.

    How does India feel about gerbils and public displays of affection?

    Poor Richard Gere. You'd think you could trust a gerbil to keep his damn yap shut.
