    She does now?

    Presumably she knows now that it's in the media? I suppose she'd have to describe it in some detail though.

    Shhhh it's a secret!

    "I've a scar that only a woman who had a thing with me would know. It's there and she doesn't know it's there."

    She does now, genius.

    Double bluff...

    If there is no scar, and (having read this) she describes one, well...

    What? You assumed he was telling the truth?

    maybe she was questioned in a taped interview?

    Ginger nut me not!

    Ginger is nay a nut. Really it is a root and this is even better as an euphemism, as it is implied that it is not a scrotal blemish, but a mark of the root.

    Just ask her WHERE the scar is.

    Hell, if his luv spuds are scarred, it may be too painful to get jiggy with it. Left leg? Right thigh? Bum cheek?

    There's a LOT of playground that can have a scar.

    Now, now. Just knowing a scar is somewhere in or on the naughty bits isn't necessarily enough. The unanswered question may very well be something like, "are the scarified bite marks longitudinal or circumferential?"

    Puzzled Paris doesn't remember either...

    Maybe she's the one who *gave* him the scar... other news, Firefox helpfully auto-filled my title with 'Marmite?' when I started typing that. Hmm...

    @Iam Me

    Heh im with you on that one. Though I will fail.

    So do his nuts really taste like ginger though? I for one am not about to find out but can we get a former lover who can comment on this?

    /mines the one with the root in the pocket.......NO NOT THAT KIND OF ROOT

    It has to be said

    He's got quite the balls if he's willing to do that.

    After being screwed to the tune of Rand 478,483.61 one would imagine the old spam javelin is well and truly scarred beyond recognition!

    Melody Maker snuffed it before it got anything like as bad as the NME is now. It may have been a woeful parody of its former self by the time it folded, but at least it still had full sentences in it.

    Always good to see depth in our vulturen.

    I give it a week

    before The Sun manages to track an ex-lover who will describe in lurid detail said scar and maybe even provide pictures.

    Moron deserves to lose the case by not keeping his mouth shut.
