This Just In


Today dufus goes behind the headlines to bring you the most accurate analysis there is on the interwebs, this side of Fox News. In this edition of noname news we bring you the news you probably can't use, and probably weren't interested in to begin with and spiff it up in such a way to prove beyond a doubt that the 10 minutes you'll have spent reading it is 10 minutes you'll never get back. Now, something I've always wanted to say: "This just in..."


Blago allowed to compete on Celebrity Apprentice
- a U.S. District Judge has allowed disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to participate in the Donald Trump reality show. The show is going in a new direction this year. Rumour has it he'll go against Bernard Madoff and the former CEOs of GM, Lehman Brothers and Enron.


Gosselin kids suffer as pawns in split - well that's no surprise. While Jon and Kate may think they're a King and Queen, they're more like a couple of rooks. Check, mate.


Parliament Hill could lose heat - an exploding boiler left the seat of Canada's government and 28 surrounding buildings without heat this week. No problem. Members of Parliament usually generate enough hot air to heat the entire national capital region.


Phil Collins can't play the drums anymore - vertebrae surgery last April on his neck has resulted in his numb hands unable to grasp a drumstick. Must be hell at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Oh, drum sticks. Collins asked his doctor if he'd ever play drums again. His doctor told him, "Yes, sure." Collins replied, "That's great, 'cause I couldn't before."


Elvis Presley hair clump sells for $15,000 - good thing somebody had the foresight to snip it when they did. If he were still alive he'd likely be bald and wouldn't have any hair to sell. I don't know but I think whoever bought the locks got clipped!


Weakened Anna Nicole Smith fed by baby bottle in final days before fatal overdose - she's dead, Jim. How some celebrities live on in infamy beyond death is a grave matter. News comes Anna was so weak in her final days she could only be fed by baby bottle. Makes sense. She was so juvenile during her pregnanacy she continued to do drugs saying she was worried about the effect of withdrawal on the fetus. Uh-huh, yeah. Just who was the dope here?

"That's the way it is...and I'm rolling over in my grave."

Hmmm my confirm word is "pedicar", is that a car that gives pedicures while you're driving it?

Anywhoo, great stories! I love the Elvis one, why anyone would want to buy his hair is beyond me, but hey, to each his own, right!?!

Skye: If I was selling my hair for that much money I'd be "all shook up"...

You know you've hit the big time in racketeering when a federal judge has to clear you to appear on a t.v. show. Anna Nicole was used to sucking on things. I'm sure she died the way she was born. With something in her mouth. Dumb fake blond.

Don: I think we have to redefine "celebrity". To me there's a big difference between someone that we look up to and someone we consider an idiot.
There's something disturbingly erotic about the image of Anna Nicole Smith being fed with a baby bottle.

Time for therapy again!

Ohhh! My captcha word is "Allazing!" That's allazing!

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…
