Eyeful of breast-feeding mom sparks outrage
  • "These readers weren't complaining about a sexually explicit cover, but rather one of a baby nursing, on a wholesome parenting magazine � yet another sign that Americans are squeamish over the sight of a nursing breast, even as breast-feeding itself gains greater support from the government and medical community."
  • My own personal opinion: I thought it was discreet, a very sweet picture, and totally appropriate.

The trailer for Queens, a Spanish rom-com about gay marriage.
  • "'Queens' is an hilarious, touching and contemporary ensemble comedy that finds five headstrong mothers coping with the personal family conflicts surrounding the impending marriages of their gay sons. As these five very different women deal with their own desires, prejudices and history they attempt to survive the weekend as sex, anger, bigotry and love hilariously clash in this ultimate wedding film about the strength of love and the importance of family."

Daily Box Office for Friday, August 18
  • Snakes on a Plane tops a weak day. The box for the top twelve was below 30 million, about 20% below last Friday.
  • Most films were about at expected levels, but Snakes did only $6 million. Experts speculated that it would do $25-30m for the weekend. (Although those were guesses because there is really nothing to compare it to.) Apparently it's not the kind of film which can carry a weekend.

Truly "other crap" ... Las Vegas city officials have made it illegal to sleep within 500 feet of shit.
  • The best part of the story: they admit it was a mistake, and here's how they plan to fix it: "City Attorney Brad Jerbic says the council will consider a revised version of the ordinance that shortens the distance between sleeper and deposits." ... "OK, make it 400 feet. Problem solved."
  • Wanted: Johnny "The Garrote" Mancini, for murder, arson, and sleeping 274 feet from doo-doo.
  • Those Vegas cops must have some mighty long and accurate measuring devices.
  • Does it count if you're sleeping and somebody else in the house forgets to flush?
  • So if the police want to arrest you, all they have to do is "plant" some poop near your sleeping quarters?
  • Seriously, are you kidding me?" asked Lee Rowland, public advocate for the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada. "I don't know how on earth a police officer would determine whether someone has knowingly set up shop next to" urine or feces." Another ordinance making it illegal to feed homeless people in parks passed July 19.

It's art, says the naked woman who'll hug a dead pig on stage. (With a GREAT picture from the UK's Daily Mail.) And it's all taxpayer-funded, so if you're near Cornwall, stop by to see what your taxes are being used for.

It's August 19th and ... you're on notice:

Today's Notes:

  • Mannequin attacks. Will this supermodel war never end? Now they're using their robots.
  • Heroin-soaked panties. "My God, you're so wet. And my hands are so tingly."
  • Moseph. Angelina Jolie has said she plans to adopt every child on earth until she finds the one who swallowed the treasure map.
