We're still smiling about Nadia's Big Brother win. We couldn't find any Portugese facts, but here's a bunch we thought would please her anyway for Monday, August 9:
» Parliament passed the married women's property act in 1870, which meant they no longer had to sign all their property over to their husbands when they married.
And not a moment too soon* for our Nadia, who's hoping for her own white wedding someday.
» . . . But she wouldn't be the first Big Brother contestant to do so - Sophie Pritchard and Lee Davey from BB3 married a year ago today.
» Norks-a-plenty! Britain's first nudist beach opened in Brighton in 1979, after a campaign by 47-year-old Eileen Jakes. The perfect place for Nadia to let 'em hang free!
» . . . and she'd surely give a trademark, window-shattering chuckle to hear about one particular nudist.
The naked chap in question sued the American Association for Nude Recreation three years ago after taking part in a firewalk and sustaining burns. To his feet, perverts!
» Happy birthday to: Troubled singer Whitney Houston (41). Her hits include "So Emotional" - just like Nadia was on Friday!
Whitney also covered the wonderful Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" - just like we will always love Nadia. Always!**
Whitney starred in a film called "The Bodyguard" - just like the bodyguards that protected Nadia from her adoring public on Friday!
*Relatively speaking, of course. And by relatively we mean "as compared to the history of the universe as a whole".
** lowculture staff retain the right to be fickle.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
