Description: Madonna Interview in Hungarian
 The following is excerpts from an interview with Madonna by a Hungarian
 newspaper (Blikk) translated into Hungarian and then back into English.
 This is a riot.

 Blikk: Madonna, Budapest says hello with arms that are spread-eagled.
 Did you have a visit here that was agreeable?  Are you in good odor?  You are
 the biggest fan of our young people who hear your musical productions and
 like to move their bodies in response.

 Madonna: Thank you for saying these compliments [holds up hands]. Please
 stop with taking sensationalist photographs until I have removed my
 garments for all to see [laughs]. This is a joke I have made.

 Blikk: Madonna, let's cut toward the hunt: Are you a bold hussy-woman
that feasts on men who are tops?

 Madonna: Yes, yes, this is certainly something that brings to the surface
 my longings. In America it is not considered to be mentally ill when a
 woman advances on her prey in a discotheque setting with hardy cocktails
 present. And there is a more normal attitude toward leather play-toys
 that also makes my day.

 Blikk: Is this how you met Carlos, your love-servant who  is reputed?
 Did you know he was heaven-sent right off the stick? Or were you dating many
 other people in your bed at the same time?

 Madonna: No, he was the only one I was dating in my bed then, so it is a
 scientific fact that the baby was made in my womb using him. But as
 regards these questions, enough! I am a woman and not a test-mouse!
 Carlos is an everyday person who is in the orbit of a star who is being
 muscle-trained by him, not a sex machine.

 Blikk: O.K., here's a question from left space: What was your book Slut

 Madonna: It was called Sex, my book.

 Blikk: Not in Hungary. Here it was called Slut. How did it come to
 publish? Were you lovemaking with a man-about-town printer? Do you prefer
 making suggestive literature to fast-selling CDs?

 Madonna: These are different facets to my career highway.

 Blikk: Thank you for your candid chitchat.

 Madonna: No problem, friend who is a girl.
