Exhaustive police efforts

Police in Hampshire, England really thought back-o-bus advertising was the way to go.

Ironically, the good people of Hampshire didn’t feel safer with PC Rob and his little exhaust pipe doing the rounds.

The Trelise Cooper Blues

2007 has not been a good year for building relationships with the authorities for Trelise Cooper and her whanau.  

There was that silly trademark lawsuit that Trelise brought against fellow designer Tamsin Cooper which was eventually dropped in July.  And yesterday not-so-secret news finally broke that Trelise’s step-daughter, Nadia, has been charged with possession of methamphetamine for supply and possession of utensils. 

Meanwhile, Lita has heard from tweety birdies that Trelise herself was recently busted in America.  She was trying to smuggle her own products into the United States without declaring them to Customs.  When asked why her luggage was stuffed with goods stamped with the Trelise Cooper brand she tried to pass everything off as personal possessions, but Customs Officers didn’t buy it.

Incidentally, who is buying Trelise Cooper’s stuff?

Hair chewers beware

Ew!  This delightful bunch of hair was found in an 18 year old American woman’s sore puku.

The woman underwent surgery to remove the mass of black, curly hair, which weighed 10 pounds and measured 15 inches by 7 inches by 7 inches, the doctors said.  A year later, the pain and vomiting were gone, the patient had regained 20 pounds “and reports that she has stopped eating her hair.”

That’s some pretty focused hair chewin’ over a fairly short lifetime.  Committed, or she should be.

“They’re just breasts”

A group of women in Sweden are holding topless protests in Swedish cities, fighting for the right to go topless at their local public pools.

They’re “just breasts”! This is the rallying cry of a network of women who have launched a campaign for the right to bathe topless at Sweden’s swimming pools.

A new wave of feminists have been angered by an incident in September in which two bare-breasted young women were called ashore by a lifeguard at a swimming pool in Uppsala. When they refused to cover up, they were asked to leave the premises.

Bara Brost (Bare Breast) blog explains the aim of the protests.

Brendan Cole: Strictly Come Dancing

Kiwi dancer Brendan Cole is in the centre of controversy and calamity on the British telly show Strictly Come Dancing.

Brendan, who is a judge in NZ’s Dancing with the Stars, is one of the pro dancers in the UK celebrity dance comp.  He is partnered with uber-babe English actress Kelly Brook, who is engaged to American actor Billy Zane.

Last month Brendan was reportedly visibly aroused during dance rehearsals with Kelly.  In last week’s show, Brendan displayed his argumentative side after a bullying verbal assault by the judges, which saw him and Kelly 2nd to the bottom of the leaderboard.  

The latest gossip is that competitive Kelly has accused Brendan of showing up to rehearsals hungover and judge Craig Revel-Horwood has been describing Brendan as a self-righteous, womanising asshole.  Lita can’t wait till Craig and Brendan are back on the same stage here in N to the Z.
