Australian Rugby League Player Admits Shitting In Hotel Corridor

nate-mylesNATE Myles is an Australian rugby league star with the Sydney Roosters  who is very sorry for defecating in the corridor of Crowne Plaza Terrigal.

Myles says it was all “a terrible accident” caused by a stomach bug. He and the chaps had been out until 4am pressing palms and signing autographs. Says he:

I am just very embarrassed and very sorry. I had been asleep for about four hours and I got up to go to the toilet. It was dark and I was a bit dazed. The door to the toilet was right next to the entry door and I went through the wrong one. The door locked behind me and I was stranded.”

The Most Controversial Michael Jackson Pictures

jackson-with-boy1MICHAEL Jackson Watch: HELLO! magazine leads once more with pictures of Michael Jackson. These are “UNSEEN PICTURES”.

It would always take something special to make the lead Jackson narrative something other then the abuse allegations and the mobile face, and thanks to his dying the media has some new threads to tug on and unravel and tie in a knot.

Hello! lists them all on its cover:

“DEBBIE’S CUSTODY FIGHT”

“THE FAMILY FEUDS”

“THE LAST PERFORMANCE”

“THE WILL AND FUNERAL”

All good stuff for the media to sink its teeth into. But can any of these achieve a legacy that will surpass the Jackson controversies to date?

Lest the story move on, Anorak takes a look a nostalgic look Most Controversial Jackson Pictures (so far):

“Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled…”

(Click the ad.)

The woman, like the bun, appears to be made of plastic.

And it surely suggests that the beef might be hewn from all the best cuts.

Susan Boyle Launches Range Of Merchandise

simon-cowell-unveils-susan-boyle-range-of-merchandiseSUSAN Boyle Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Susan Boyle in the news. Susan launches a new range of merchandise, which may say well should she well, retire undefeated…

The Frisky:

Susan Boyle is one reality TV contestant who let fame go to her head. And by that, I mean she had a breakdown as a result of the celebrity that was thrust upon her after appearing on “Britain’s Got Talent.” But she’s not alone. Paula Goodspeed committed suicide outside “American Idol” judge Paula Abdul’s home after being teased about her weak tryout. Then there’s CT from “Real World/Road Rules Challenges: The Duel 2,” who would have killed Adam in a couple fights if producers and cast members hadn’t intervened.

Fallen Princesses: When Reality Bites The Fairy Tale

fallen-princesses-belle2DINA Goldstein’s Fallen Princesses place Fairy Tale characters in modern day scenarios.

As the artist says:

In all of the images the Princess is placed in an environment that articulates her conflict. The ‘…happily ever after’ is replaced with a realistic outcome and addresses current issues... I began to imagine Disney’s perfect Princesses juxtaposed with real issues that were affecting women around me, such as illness, addiction and self-image issues.

If America did Little Red Riding Hoodsee them all…

How To Make A Russian Jet From Cigarettes

russian-jet3IN Anorak’s masterclass today, readers learn how to make a Russian Jet fighter from a cigarette box.

Old Mr Anorak once dispatched me to Cuba, approaching from Cancun. The plane was Russian. The seat fell backwards and remained supine throughout the flight. The overhead fan when touched lighted collapsed. The onboard staff laughed and then went “Whoooooh” when the plane fell and rose repeatedly.

When we landed, there was three-hour wait in the airport while a crowbar was retrieved to prise open the hold.

Anyhow, enjoy. Pass the smokes:
