CNN anchor Kyra Phillips runs of at mouth while taking a leak


CNN anchor Kyra Phillips ran off at the mouth while taking a leak. Her microphone was left on while she went to the bathroom during a presidential speech, broadcasting her comments about her husband and her sister-in-law live from the ladies' room.

She called herself herself "very lucky" to have a "handsome" and "great, great human being" for a husband.

She also called her brother's wife a "control freak."

A few days later, Kyra appeared on Late Night with David Letterman to read a Top Ten List about her experience:

Top Ten Kyra Phillips Excuses Presented by CNN Anchor Kyra Phillips:

10. "Still haven't mastered complicated On/Off switch."
9. "Larry King told me he does this all the time."
8. "How was I supposed to know we had a reporter embedded in the bathroom?"
7. "I honestly never knew this sort of thing was frowned upon."
6. "Couldn't resist chance to win $10,000 on 'America's Funniest Home Videos.'"
5. "I was set up by those bastards at Fox News."
4. "Oh, like you've never gone to the bathroom and had it broadcast on national television!"
3. "I just wanted that hunky Lou Dobbs to notice me."
2. "OK, so I was drunk and couldn't think straight."
1. "You have to admit, it made the speech a lot more interesting."

Topless porn stars star in 'Boobs on Bikes' parade


What fun it must be to live in New Zealand!

Thousands of people lined Auckland's Queen Street to watch the "Boobs on Bikes" parade earlier today. Despite the fact it's still cold Down Under, 25 topless porn stars showed their best sides in the nippy, chilly weather.

The bare-chested women paraded along the main street on motorbikes and two old army tanks, Reuters reported.

"It does nothing for our image, it does nothing for our city and I just think it gives us indecent exposure around the country and around the world," Auckland city councilor Scott Milne told TV New Zealand. Milne obviously just doesn't like women's breasts, which, I would think, disqualifies him from having an opinion on the parade at all.

"It's shabby and it's sleazy and we just don't need it," he said.

The porn star parade is part of an "Erotica Expo" organized by self-styled "porn king" Steve Crow.

"You'll always have a vocal minority, you're always going to have people who object to everything, be it religion or be it adult entertainment," Crow said.

"If you don't like it don't come," he said.

Protesters held up banners saying "Sleaze Brings Disease in Body & Mind."

Good things come in twos: Here are a couple of breast stories


Widow's Son must have woken up with boobs on his brain this morning.

First he told me about a story about an Israeli woman whose life was saved when her breast implants stopped shrapnel from an exploding rocket.

Then Bloggity Bunny makes some perky points about breast shrinkage during a weight-loss diet, and tells the secrets of bra-stuffing by Hooters girls.

They say good things come in threes, but in this case, I don't expect there will be a third story. Some good things come in pairs.

Propelled by burps, Britney Spears goes time travelling


Seven-month pregnant Britney Spears, who appear to be drunk or stoned, stars in a burp-filled, stupidity-laden home video....

Britney's 'I'm ugly' video

Reprinted from the UK Daily Mail

A bizarre video of Britney Spears belching and ranting at her husband has shocked fans worldwide.

The pop star — who appears confused as she speaks to the camera — moans about being ugly and whines at husband Kevin Federline while eating what appears to be takeaway chicken and chips.

She also moans that she has "missed out on life."

Scroll down to the bottom of the page to watch the video clip of Britney

When pushed further on the topic she says, quite irrationally: "Things! Y'know! Huh? Where've I been? Huh?

"I wanna drink at home! Have you seen Back to the Future?"

The dishevelled girl on camera is a far cry from the megastar fans once knew, when she had a string of chart hits and a glamorous lifestyle.

The video, which has already been seen by two million people on the internet in the past few days, reveals Britney burping, scratching her legs incessantly and rambling about random thoughts such as time machines.

The 24-year-old, who is seven months pregnant and mother to baby Sean Preston, says she believes travelling through time is a possibility.

Referring to the film Back To The Future, she asks: "Is that possible? To time travel...? Yes it is Kevin. I think other people are ahead of us."

Federline, who is not seen in the video, replies: "Maybe, but they wouldn't tell the world. Can you imagine how many people would go back and change s***?".

The pop star, who is wearing a baseball cap and vest, also says: "I'm ugly. My jaw hurts."

As she let out an enormous burp, her husband tells her: "Dude, we're going to do clips of you burping."

Dancing the Circle


"We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars... the stars form a circle, and in the center we dance." — Rumi (13th century)

Freemasons celebrate the squares and angles; Wiccans celebrate the Circle.

True, Freemasons have a seldom-mentioned concept about squaring the circle, and the point in the circle, but no one stops to think about it very much.

Witchcraft ("Wicca") is called the Craft, just as Freemasonry is. Many, including author and word-shaman Robert Anton Wilson, have suggested that perhaps Masonry and Witchcraft are simply opposite sides of the same (circular) coin.

I have long loved this short poem by Robert Frost: "We dance round in a ring and suppose / But the secret sits in the middle and knows."

Awakened Woman magazine recently published an article about the mysteries of the Circle titled "Dancing the Circle." Enjoy.

With the creation of Renate Jope's "Oh Panama!" blog, Technorati began tracking its 50 millionth blog.

Okay, maybe it wasn't Renate who pushed 'em over that mega-number, but still....

Technorati founder and CEO David Sifry published his quarterly report on the State of the Blogosphere this morning. The number of blogs continues to double about every 200 days.

Here's a summary:Read the report.

The Da Vinci Code falls from grace

       0 comments rode Da Vinci's horse a long, long time. It's not dead, but let's not beat it, either. Just put it up, hard-ridden and wet.

The Da Vinci Code and anything related to it have become passe. The Top 50 has for the first time since The Da Vinci Code's publication become Da Vinci Code-free.

But what a ride!

Dan Brown and fellow Brit J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, have redefined how big a modern blockbuster book can be. Once selling a million books was "mega" — now it's more like four or five million. When you factor in Brown's prequel book Angels and Demons, which flew high on the wings of DVC, a Dan Brown book is in one of every two homes in the United Kingdom. That's big!

In America, it's big, too. The Da Vinci Code is even on kids' reading lists.

Brown's next book is reportedly about Freemasons, and is due out in early 2007.

The Morning After Pill: What do you think?


The controversy of allowing the Morning After Pill to be sold over the counter, but only to those 18 or over, has set bloggers a-blogging.

Goddess Bunny shares her view by posting a video from The View. The title she's chosen for the entry says it all.

Pagan Temple's Patrick gives a different take, writing a hot and heavy teenage four-letter-word-filled f*** fantasy. It's the ending, though, not the beginning, that's the obscene part.

Hungry men like heavier women


Hungry men like heavier women, research from England shows.

A recent study appearing in the British Journal of Psychology says how full a man's stomach is can dictate the type of woman he will be attracted to, UK research suggests.

A study of 61 male university students found those who were hungry were attracted to heavier women than those who were satiated. The hungry men also paid much less attention to a woman's body shape and regarded less curvy figures as more attractive.

No one quite understands why, but past research on attraction suggests social, cultural and psychological factors are involved.

What this means for the average Jack and Jill on a traditional date is anyone's guess. Will overweight women try to starve their male companions? Will skinny women tell their dates to stop by the buffet before picking them up? Will a man change his opinion of his date during the course of a meal?

This is interesting study... even moreso when you blend and stir these concepts in with the results of a study that said that if a woman smells like grapefruit, a man will perceive her as being up to six years younger, and with the results of a study that showed that living together makes women fatter and men healthier and thinner.

A few years ago one British study (who pays for these things?) determined that having obese friends made other people judge you more negatively than if you hang out with thinner people, regardless of whether you are obese or not.

The moral of all this?

There isn't one. I just found it interesting. And I'm going on a diet.

Strippers keep their clothes on during river trip; nearby Baptist minister charged with sexually molesting 15-year old boy


Kudos to the marketing department at San Antonio's Men's Palace Club's marketing department. The PR stunt worked. Not only did the Men's Palace Club get the local and national media to come out to watch their strippers tube down the Comal River on Sunday... they got to write not just one, but two, articles about it!

What a great marketing campaign, what a great TEASE! No one even hinted they would be flashing a nipple, yet the local panties-in-a-wad crowd got so nervous the TV stations turned out to watch the lovely ladies drift by, hoping to spot a topless Sacred Fem being busted. Voyeuristic pervs!

The strippers kept their swimsuits on, and were well-behaved.

A different group, however, which included minors, were ticketed for underage drinking, and an adult with them was arrested for providing alcohol to the kids.

Few tubers objected to the group, but some were dismayed.

"It's not a place for them," said one woman, who apparently thinks attractive women shouldn't be seen in public.

The story first got our attention last week, before the event, when New Braunfels city councilman Ken Valentine was quoted as saying the strippers should "be in church" on Sunday, not tubing down the river.

Ironically, a news link from the TV station's website where we read about this leads to a current story about Baptist minister Jerry Dale Carver, from nearby Austin, who was arrested this week for allegedly sexually molesting a 15-year-old boy.

His photo and bio have been stripped from his (former?) church's "meet the staff" webpage at Great Hills Baptist Church. This notice appears on the church's Features page: "The church is saddened by the report today by the Austin Police Department, and we are concerned for all of the individuals involved. This is a serious matter that is the subject of a pending investigation, so it would not be appropriate to make any further public comment at this time."

Before we feel sorry for the congregation and think maybe Carver is just "one bad apple," dig this: Not too many years ago, Great Hills Baptist Church's then-youth minister Rick Willitz was convicted of sexually assaulting a minor. He's still behind bars.

I think the strippers were much safer floating down the river in their bikinis than all dressed up going to church.

Waitress cards a customer, is handed her own ID


A waitress at the Moosehead Saloon in Lakewood, Ohio asked a young female patron for her ID Saturday, to verify she was old enough to order a drink.

Imagine the waitress's surprise when the customer produced the waitress's own driver's license, lost (along with her purse and credit card) on July 9 at a bar in a different Ohio town, the AP reported.

As the waitress called police, the patron became suspicious and fled. Another customer ratted her out, giving her name as Maria Bergan, 23, of Westlake, Ohio.

Turns out the woman was old enough to drink. She was also old enough to know better. The waitress's credit card had been used for $1,000 in illicit purchases.

Bergan was arrested Saturday night and remains in the Westlake City Jail. She has been charged with identity theft and receiving stolen property.
