(Newser) – Won't they ever shut up? The hunky Winklevoss twins—snarkily dubbed the "Winkle-vii" by Mark Zuckerberg—are grousing again about how they were ripped off when their Harvard classmate "stole" their Facebook idea (even though they won a reported $65 million settlement from Zuckerberg). Tyler and Cameron discuss their woes while "flexing butt cheeks and flaunting nipples" in a weirdly erotic video interview on Rupert Murdoch's Daily, in which they talk about being "handcuffed" by Zuckerberg, chortles Maureen O'Conner at Gawker.

The only journalist who falls for the silver-spoon boys' not-so-pitiable "David and Goliath" tale, notes O'Conner, is Daily writer Erin Ade, who, whoops, turns out to be a "childhood friend" of the martyr-complex pair. Check out the Winkledross here.
