My boy Snoot is his BIGGEST FAN!!! Actually, when Snoot came up for a game a couple of years ago, not only did "Ghoulsby" almost knock him over "accidentally" in the club (known as Finnegans then, before the big bust of 2000), but he "may or may not" have stolen some of his Marlboros.

SHOCKER--Fox News to Air Anti-Boss Ad


MARILYN O'Grady, the long-shot Conservative Party candidate challenging Sen. Charles Schumer, has launched a TV ad campaign bashing Bruce Springsteen for his upcoming concert tour to unseat President Bush, reports The Post's Kenneth Lovett. "He thinks making millions with a song-and-dance routine allows him to tell you how to vote," O'Grady says in the ad. "Here's my vote: Boycott the Boss. If you don't buy his politics, don't buy his music." The commercials are set to run on Fox News Channel.

Miller's rock 'n' roll beer cans lacking in diversity


Apparently there is some angry meanies out and about regarding Miller's new marketing campaign. Miller decided to put some white people on their "Rock-n-Roll cans". And the meanies, you know, they make a point...left out are Chuck Berry, Ravi Shankar, Shonen Knife, Midnight Oil and certainly Menudo...surely they have a place. (story here)

But we all know what this is...it is Black and White...what a shame

So, I pose this question, IF St. Ides or Colt .45 started a campaign and put the likes of Ice Cube, Ice-T, Rakim, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E on some luscious forties...Do you think that Eminem or Vanilla Ice would make the grade.

Andy Dick Cracks


August 12, 2004 -- TV comic Andy Dick went on a randy rampage at Suede early yesterday that ended after he burst into tears over the death of his friend Rick James and was thrown out of the Chelsea club by "Little Shop of Horrors" star Joey Fatone.

Dick, the star of MTV's "The Assistant," was desperately in need of a minion to get him under control as he tried to kiss any man or woman he bumped into, including "Austin Powers" actor Seth Green, rolled around on the men's room floor, and asked clubgoers if they had cocaine. full story

Keyes v. Obama


Now everybody knows Alan Keyes stands no chance in November against the Democratic Political Prodigy Barak Obama. Yet still, Sunday he threw his hat in the ring.

Obama was running unopposed after Republican Jack Ryan missed a debate after oversleeping in a swingers club. But now Keyes is running and is doing the same thing he villified when Hillary Clinton ran for the senate in 2000.

Obama, displaying almost irritating good nature, released this statement on his website concerning the whitest-black man entering the Senate race:

Statement from Barack Obama on Alan Keyes' Entry into the Illinois US Senate Race

"I want to welcome Alan Keyes to Illinois and to this Senate race."

"As Mr. Keyes begins to travel the state, he will see that families here are concerned about quality jobs, making health care more affordable and ensuring our children get the best education possible."

"And Illinoisans want a Senate candidate who will attack the problems they and their families face rather than spending time attacking each other."

"I invite him to join me in such a race."

Loosely translated it means--"Ha ha ha, brutha gotsno chance!"

Dave Matthews Band accused of Taking a Dump on Chicago


By MICHAEL HAWTHORNE
Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO -- The bus driver for rock star Dave Matthews called from the road Monday to say his luxury coach was not the one responsible for dousing passengers on a Chicago River tour boat with foul-smelling muck over the weekend.

Witnesses on the architectural sightseeing cruise told police they saw a long black tour bus dump liquid waste Sunday afternoon as their boat crossed under the Kinzie Street bridge.

About two-thirds of the passengers seated on the upper deck of Chicago's Little Lady were soaked with the "brownish-yellow" substance. more



A reality show (video) for Nicky Hilton?


PARIS and Nicky Hilton made it simple for thieves to burglarize their Beverly Hills home — the sexy sibs had a habit of leaving their front door unlocked. Pals say Paris lost her keys and purse so often that the airy heiresses decided to keep their abode unlocked. Nicky found out about last week's break-in and called Paris, who was partying at the time with ex-boyfriend Jason Shaw at the L.A. club Concorde. "She started crying and Jason comforted her," our spy said. Paris has good cause to be upset. Among the items stolen were cash, jewelry and — uh-oh — personal video tapes. Hilton's rep didn't return calls.

Judge tells teens to fear rape in prison


Canadian Press
Aug. 9, 2004 07:25 PM

WINNIPEG - A Winnipeg judge warned two violent young offenders Monday that they face bleak futures - which could include being raped in federal prison - if they don't turn their troubled lives around.

"Next stop is Stony Mountain," provincial court Judge Ronald Meyers told a 17-year-old boy, who along with a 15-year-old pleaded guilty to three armed robberies of Winnipeg businesses.

"I don't know whether you're prepared to consider yourself the girlfriend of some guy in there. But that's what awaits you. An 18-year-old fresh face comes in and it's fair game. Think about that." (more)

how long will it take?


Just because your girlfriend jumped off a cliff......

NEA IONIA, Greece -- As relatives tell it, it was the stuff of Greek tragedy: A love-struck young man threw himself off his balcony Monday, two days after a quarrel prompted his girlfriend -- a member of Greece's Olympic judo team -- to jump from the same spot.

"He had very intense feelings about the girl. He was very much in love," said Nikos Drakopoulos, a printer who lives across the hall from the couple. "He could not see himself living if she was gone."

Giorgos Chrisostomides, 24, was on life-support at an Athens hospital with injuries to his head and back. His high-school sweetheart, 20-year-old judo champion Eleni Ioannou, was at another hospital in critical condition with multiple fractures to her head and body. (for more click here)

RIP


SUPERFREAK

Really, whats wrong with a little foot fetish?

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The Dutch Labour party wants to pass a law making unsolicited toe-licking an offence after police were unable to prosecute a would-be Casanova with a taste for female toes because he had committed no crime.

A police spokesman said on Friday a man had been detained after women sunning themselves in Rotterdam's parks and beaches claimed he would sneak up on them and begin to lick their toes.

"The officers had to let him go. Licking a stranger's toes is rather unusual but there is really nothing criminal about it," the spokesman said.

Dutch press reports said the man, who is about 35, had been licking the toes of strangers for about three years but was only recently caught by police.

Peter van Heemst, a Labour member of parliament, asked Christian Democrat Justice Minister Piet Hein Donner on Friday to explain why Dutch laws forbid littering but not uninvited toe-licking. van Heemst demanded an amendment prohibiting it.

"It is a violation of one's privacy and one's physical integrity," he told a local news agency. "The norm... is that no one should touch your body if you haven't asked them first."

Why don't they just cross in Arizona

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Some TV shows offer an extreme makeover, others a bid for pop stardom. But the hottest reality show in the U.S. Hispanic market is offering the ultimate prize -- a potential green card to immigrants desperate to pursue the American dream.

"Gana la Verde" ("Win the Green") has attracted big audiences and hundreds of contestants willing to eat burritos crammed with live worms, jump off high-speed trucks or wash sky-scraper windows in exchange for a year's legal help in speeding up their visa or green card cases. (whole story click here)

It is a state of affairs when a government, presumabley the Mexican government, is obviously sponsoring this if by anything allowing the game show to speed up the immigration process. Things are starting to shape up along the lines of that Arnie movie "Running Man"!

Soon there will be a game show where if the contestant doesn't cut the mustard he is going to die!

After seven years of incarceration Mary Kay Letourneau has been released.

You may remember, Letourneau was convicted of pedophilia after having an affair with a sixth grader and having two children by the young man (boy). That young man, Vili Fualaau, is now 21 and wants his woman back. There is currently a restraining order of sorts prohibiting the two from seeing eachother. But will it be enough to keep them apart?

Chappelle renews for $50 million

NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) -- Dave Chappelle has signed a massive deal with Comedy Central that will return the comedian's hit series to the network for two more seasons.

Sources familiar with the deal indicate it could be worth about $50 million, vaulting Chappelle, 30, into the rarefied realm of television's top earners. The new contract is believed to mark not only a steep increase for Chappelle as star, writer, co-executive producer and co-creator of "Chappelle's Show," but more significantly, reward him with a hefty chunk of the series' robust DVD sales.

Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?


This picture of Mike Tyson is likely how he will be thought of from here on out. Hitting rock bottom!

Remember when Iron Mike was the baddest man on the planet. Before friday night...before the tatoo...before biting ears...before the rape conviction...before Buster...

He was the MAN...Invincible...Everything that boxing needed. He was a hero and a nightmare all rolled into one.

His career is probably not over (he's got bills to pay)...but the aura that was Iron Mike has long since evaporated...he was/is an animal, he was/is a beast but, man I wish it was like the old days when he beat the snot out of everything in his path. I miss those days. Boxing misses those days. Not since he won the heavyweight title has there been a champion to roll through the competition like he did.

South Africa NOT to cancel X-Mas

This little bit is the story refuting an earlier publication's claim that Christmas was to be possibly cancelled. Chris Cringle had no comment!

CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - South Africa has denied a media report that it plans to cancel Christmas. The Sunday Times newspaper ran a banner headline "Christmas may be canceled" above a story quoting a task team evaluating the number of public holidays as warning no holiday should be regarded as sacred in multi-racial, multi-faith South Africa.

"I would like to reassure all of you that there is no such report which has been tabled before me," Home Affairs Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula told a parliamentary committee on Monday in response to the article.

"There has not been that recommendation."

Last year the Advertising Standards Authority banned a Post Office advertisement asking children to write to Santa Claus, saying it was "profiting from the natural credulity of children" and perpetuating "a falsehood that could break the fragile spirits of the already disillusioned youth of South Africa."

Michigan attempts to ONE-UP Florida's Trailer Park Antics


Woman allegedly assaults boyfriend with fish
By ABCNEWS.com
May 6, 2004 (SAGINAW, Mich.) — Beware of a woman scorned — or allegedly armed with a mounted fish.
A woman was arrested May 3 on allegations that she used a mounted fish with a pointy nose to attack her live-in boyfriend, say police in Saginaw, Mich., who responded to a domestic disturbance and found a 25-year-old man who claimed he was the victim of a knife assault.

According to the police report, the man had small cuts on his arms, right leg and left shoulder. He also had a bite wound on the left shoulder. When questioned, the man's girlfriend allegedly told authorities her attack was an act of retaliation. According to investigators, she said she bit her boyfriend after he bit her first. She denied wielding a knife but allegedly admitted grabbing the fish after he had thrown her down and hit her repeatedly.

Investigators could not find evidence of knife usage at the scene, but observed that the mounted fish resembled a swordfish. The accused woman awaits formal charges.


IDIOT---doing time for shooting self!!!

Man sentenced after shooting himself

July 14, 2004 (Sheffield, England) — David Walker is adding legal insult to injury. He's been sentenced to five years in jail, after shooting himself in the groin with a sawed-off shotgun.

The Englishman stuffed the gun in his pants after drinking 15 pints of beer. Walker told officers in Dinnington, England, he was so drunk he had no idea how he managed to shoot himself.

He was sentenced yesterday, after admitting to possession of a prohibited firearm. The judge noted Walker's injury, but said the five-year prison stretch is the mandatory minimum.

Drug Sniffer Dog Dies of Overdose

Mon Aug 2,10:02 AM ET FROM REUTERS

LONDON (Reuters) - A police sniffer dog died of a suspected overdose while out hunting for drugs, British police said on Monday.

Todd, a 7-year-old Springer spaniel, had been looking for drugs in a field and car in Preston, northern England, when his handler noticed he was looking unwell.

He was taken to a vet and then rushed to an animal intensive care unit at Liverpool University, displaying symptoms of ingesting amphetamines, a Lancashire police spokeswoman said.

He died shortly afterwards.

The death was said to have devastated Todd's handler, Police Constable Roger Moore, his wife and two young children.

"He (Todd) lived with them and they would all go for walks with him -- he was their dog," Sergeant Peter Crane of Preston's dog unit told the Daily Mirror.

"He's going to be very difficult to replace, but police work is dangerous and unfortunately Todd has become a casualty."

Police said a post mortem on Todd was being carried out.
