    Thats one of the best yet

    "A Massachusetts woman, who's been parked on a sofa outside the Top Model audition all night the better to secure an early spot in the castings has, after an excess of liquor, decided to impregnate her wife with a plastic syringe containing her brother's man juice:"

    That alone got me some strange looks over the dividers in the office cos I laughed so hard.

    Best news article I have seen all week

    Keep up the good work, and give the photog a raise, he deserves it putting his life on the line to get these exclusive pictures.

    Exellent Reporting

    Well done again Reg - wonderful camerawork too.

    Just one question - did the cameraman get permission from these people and the police to take these photographs?

    Audio? . . . we need audio

    Totally shocking pics, I must say.

    In the absence of audio (c'mon Reg make an effort) thankfully I can lip-read, and the words on the lips of the panic stricken crowd all say the same thing

    Why is it that... online lesbian publication can get exclusive pictures of these events when the mainstream media completely fail?

    You guys rock.

    Let me fix that line for you ...

    "Optimus Prime's anger was, we should explain, caused by Top Model's existence."

    Titles are for conformists

    But seriously can I get a job being Lester's prop manager? Pleeeease :-). I wont take up much space and I'll only come out when it's time for the playmobil re-enactments.

    @Lankydude: Of course an online lesbian publication got the scoop. I thought everyone knew that super models and lesbians are like ham and eggs, just a natural pairing (so to speak).

    One question...

    "Wood was, sources say, cloned from a small fragment of DNA taken from a dress used in 1953 classic Glen or Glenda."
