A new book has been published regarding the Nobel Peace Prize winning atheist, humanist, polar explorer, peace activist, national hero, and overall general good guy Fridtjof Nansen. Specifically, the book contains hitherto unpublished romantic communication between the elderly gigolo and his new flame, the 30 year younger American feminist Brenda Ueland, including some rather provocative still photos of the 67 year old.
Without further ado, and as promised in the title, here he is, in full vigour:
There i a bit of funny twist to this story: A newspaper published these photos on Facebook earlier today... and their post was quickly removed and the paper threatened with having their account banned altogether! This is no ordinary tabloid we are talking about, but rather the preeminent newspaper of Norway. I personally can barely stop laughing at the comment made by the editor that "There is nothing unaestethic or pornographic about these pictures. These are exquisite pictures of a beautiful man."
Yay for US draconian sexual mores and moralisms, and their witless imposition upon somewhat more modern and liberal foreign nations. ;)
