Two 19th-century Hungarian statesmen, two porn stars and a dynasty of Hasidic rebbes walk into a bar in Sátoraljaújhely…

N.K alerts us to an interesting historical factoid. Did anyone know that among the famous residents of the northeast town of Sátoraljaújhely are two of Hungary’s preeminent statesmen (Lajos Kossuth and Gyula Andrássy), Rebbe Moshe Teitelbaum (the first) and other founding fathers of the worldwide Satmar sect of Hasidic Judaism, and two of Hungary’s preeminent porn queens (Michelle Wild and Brigitta Bulgari)? We’re going to do some additional online research on all of these fascinating historical figures right now. Starting with the last two.

And here is what people were saying back before we forced readers to use Facebook to comment. Weren't those the days?

    I once knew a guy at school who claimed to have done Michelle Wild, Brigitta Bulgari and the Grand Rebbe during a weird night of sex and water sports at a club in Hatvan back in the late 1990s.

  2. Jackie Treehorn says:

    Ha! Thanks for this blast from the past. Loved Michelle Wild and Brigitta Bulgari. Hadn’t really followed the case with Brigitta but it really looks like she was the victim and the prosecutor was a f#$cking @sshole. If All Hungary Media wants to start a petition for him to be disbarred in Italy, I will sign it!
