Blog uses raunchy pics to increase readership

A new blog is published every 11 seconds, so how do you make sure yours is going to get noticed? You could spend money on ad placements or Alexa SEO (search engine optimization). Or you could use sex...
...raunchy, but tasteful...

Man versus whale situation escalates

Man has been at 'conflict status amber' with the whales since the July 21st attack in South Africa when a W-122 stealth whale, codename Moby, took out a yacht. Fortunately no-one was injured in the strike, but it set the tempo for one of natures strangest standoff's.

Snooki outraged by typo in contract

Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi is red with anger (or is it excessive spray tan? no it's anger) because of a typographical error in the newest draft of her contract with MTV for the new season of Jersey Shore. We were actually suprised to learn that she could read.

North Korea Threaten Nuclear Retaliation

North Korea is jealous of the US and South Korea being friends and playing wargames together off the South Korean coast, and has threatened a nuclear intervention at the combat practice. The hot air eminates from Pyongyang, a city still recoiling from its country's ass-whooping in the soccer world cup.

Marathon Match was a Plot To Draw Viewers

We all know that men's tennis is about as mindnumbingly dull as watching paint dry, but when a single game last 11 hours and takes 2 days to play, it's like watching the paint dry and then slowly peel off the wall.
Almost a double fault
Almost a double fault!
Women's tennis is another matter. Athletic women in short skirts, bending over and grunting with every exertion, now that I could watch for 11 hours (unless any of the players had the last name Williams - TOO athletic for my heterosexual tastes).

OMG? more like WTF?

Does anyone remember the furore about Macaulay Culkin hanging out with Michael Jackson and the tabloid interest it sparked?  Well Macaulay denied that any inappropriate activities took place, and I am inclined to believe him. After all it is perfectly normal for black music stars to hang around with white, teenage kids.

Buckyballs found in space

Astronomers with way to much time on their hands have found something very small, with a silly name and guess what... it's super far away, hanging out not around a swimming pool in Cabo San Lucas, but in the nebula around a white dwarf star.
How many of you remember these?

Archaeologists find new structure at Stonehenge

A story from my homeland about Stonehenge, one of the seven wonders of England. Yes England has 7 wonders, the most recent being How did we get so far in the Soccer World Cup?

The archaeologists used radar to discover the new henge which was apparently a timber construction of similar proportions to it's stone counterpart, built around the same time as it's big brother. I expect that continued study of the area will uncover a third henge with a straw design and the skeletal remains of 3 pigs.

Easy Targets - Mel Gibson and BP

Welcome to the inaugural post of My Twist (now known as Slap the Penguin), my own personal viewpoint of the headlines, whether big or small - local/national/global if I have an opinion then BAM.

First off, MEL COLUMCILLE GERARD GIBSON, the famous American actor who masquerades as a racist, woman hating Australian. [That's right folks, he was born in the US.] I have lost track of all the protected classes he has alienated, and I certainly wouldn't want to be a one-legged Swedish sex-change lesbian coming out of a synagogue when Mel has been drinking.

His alleged comments (alleged now that the integrity of the tapes is now in doubt) regarding oral sex and dwelling destruction remind me of the classic tale of the 3 little pigs.

B.B. Wolf - Little pig, little pig, let me come in (your mouth).
L.P. #1 - You can't put nuts on my chinny chin chin.
B.B. Wolf - Then I'll huff and I'll puff and burn your house down.
L.P. #1 - Bring it on Wolfie, who are the tabloids going to believe? Oh, and I am recording this, which is why I am staying so calm and baiting you into your psycho outbursts of hatred.

As for British Petroleum and their crude behaviour, what more needs to be said. The spill is now the world's largest ecological disaster churning an estimated 140 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. If only it was liquor, we could have Lindsay Lohan save the planet and work off her sentence with community service - cheers.
Only a week ago, the first cap was replaced with a second tighter fitting cap which was described as an 18 ft high, underwater Lego tower. I am definitely going to sleep better tonight knowing that BP has it's finest minds asking their children how to fix the leak.
"Here Dad look what I made to stop the oil."
"Thanks son, It looks just like a Lego tower. It's the best plan we have had since April 20th"
