Sometimes people say the craziest things.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, former head of the International Monetary Fund, is on trial in France for “pimping,” running sex parties in Washington, D.C., and a couple of cities in France.

Anyway, at his trial yesterday, Strauss-Kahn said: “The prosecution gives the impression of unbridled activity. There were only 12 parties in total – that is four per year over three years.”

Yep.
