• Iraq is becoming a no quag zone.

• Run for your lives! It’s the Arkansas Ape!

• Thailand can’t find its own weapons of mass destruction.

• Greg Sheridan has lost his mind.

• How can an idea as powerful and innovative as Gore TV possibly go wrong? This has got ratings success written all over it. Watch out, Fox News! Al’s planning a four-hour interview with Holland’s trade representative to the UN! Try to beat THAT!

• Have fun being shot to death, Ali Ghufron!

• It turns out Norway has been banning films for decades. We must deploy Margaret Pomeranz immediately.

• Britney Spears says she was the man in her relationship with Justin Timberlake. Well, somebody had to be.

• And Gary Sauer-Thompson continues to challenge for the title of dullest blog in the world:

I attended the hearings of the Senate inquiry into the funding and regulatory legislation of higher education yesterday afternoon. I heard submissions from University of South Australia, the student unions of the three universities in Adelaide, Flinders University of South Australia and part of the submission from the South Australian government.

Nobody ever comments on this navel-gazing blog stuff.

(D'oh! )

Okay, only one idiot.

Seriously, though, isn't the point statistically evident enough?

I maintain that regardless what Britney says, there was no man in that relationship.

"But [Ali Ghufron] told the court the judgement was made under laws he did not believe in, and so would appeal."

He believes in the appeal bit then. Just not the rest.

Sheridan has no small problem.That insipid stop start game rugby league is boring, tedious to watch, it could induce a young fella to commit buggery it is that hopeless a game.

If it's rugby, there is only one code, Union.Non-stop, bruising, bone crunching force combined with
tactics that leave league a game for boofheads.

After seeeing "On Deadly Ground" I remember thinking it shouldve been banned too.
Not that it was violent or anything, it was just crap.

Does that mean Britney used a strap-on?
