The problem is...

that due to a design constraint they can't cross their ankles.

WTF?

That may be so, but snorting cayenne pepper is just weird.

I'm waiting for two-page expose complete with recreation of how the glowing ginger got the way she is.

Paris, just because I can.

I suppose they had to explain this somehow.

I'm I the only one interested in riding the LOHAN simulator?

Hopefully the tech isn't *that* accurate though.

Dress sense ?

Why has she got her trousers on back to front ?

OK, one down...

OK, one down, but to properly simulate your typical WallyMart you need:

* Morbidly obese person who totally ignores the advice "Dress for your body size"

* Oblivious mother and her 14 feral crotch fruit(*1) she ignores

* Suburban white boy trying to be "gangsta"

* Oblivious person paying more attention to their iThing than where they are going.

* Oblivious person with their shopping cart positioned to block the isle while they look at something.

(*1) - I normally use a more alliterative form but in deference to propriety I will substitute "crotch" for the every-part-of-the-language word.

Re: OK, one down...

Ah WallyWorld. Whenever I find myself anywhere near one I'm reminded of Arthur's reaction when they arrive at the Restaurant.

Arthur: Incredible ! The people ! the things !

Ford: The things are also people

Arthur: The people, the .... other people

For the true experience you really have to visit one in rural Arkansas. Where it's the best shop in town. The big challenge lies in trying not to poke your own eyes out.

Oh come on guys.

Give the poor chappie a break. He bravely flew in a highly experimental craft, with (it seems) no personal lifesaving kit.

Is it any surprise that on landing he gets overrun by a swarm of adoring females?

Which of you can honestly say they wouldn't succumb under such circumstances?

Are you sure he's still in Blighty?

Given that *someone* is driving a one ton nuclear laser tank down to ET's Bar 'n' Grill on Mars right about now, are you sure him and a mate aren't doing a bit of moon(Mars?)lighting for NASA at the moment?

Rumours are true

http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2012/aug/07/london-2012-condoms-olympic-village

"The Australian BMX cyclist Caroline Buchanan tweeted a photograph of the bucket, which featured a sign reading "Kangaroos condoms, for the gland downunder", and a picture of a boxing kangaroo.

She joked that bucket seemed to back up rumours that the village becomes a hot bed of activity as thousands of competitors complete their events and celebrate after years of working to get to the Olympics – tweeting: "Haha, the rumours are true. Olympic village."

Barcelona started the trend of supplying free condoms to athletes when the Spanish city held the Olympics in 1992, with the International Olympic Committee endorsing the move.

The London Olympic organisers provided 150,000 free condoms in dispensers for the 10,800 athletes at the Games, supplied by Durex which paid for the supply rights.

A Locog spokeswoman said they were trying to find out who distributed the Kangaroo condoms, with the container shown to hold condoms from Durex's rivals Ansell Ltd, an Australian company, and Pasante, a private British firm.

She said athletes and officials were allowed to bring products into the village for their personal use.

"We will look into this and ask that they are not handed out to other athletes because Durex are our supplier," said the spokeswoman."

My personal view? Young, fit, active people with something to celebrate? Why not?

I could

make some very disparaging remarks about how this Playmobile figure more closely resembles a cat-walk model than the average NON-pregnant person in this ( antipodean, YMMV ) part of the world.

So I'll leave it at that...
