Shock of the year: George Bush does NOT win the annual Foot in Mouth prize!
Supermodel Naomi Campbell was acclaimed for nonsense Monday after winning the Plain English Campaign's annual "Foot in Mouth" prize. The London-born catwalk star scooped this year's award for her patriotic observation on British cuisine: "I love England, especially the food. There's nothing I like more than a lovely bowl of pasta."

Germaine Greer won the campaign's "Golden Bull" award, which recognises the "worst examples of written tripe." The feminist author of "The Female Eunuch" wrote in her arts column in The Guardian on October 23: "The first attribute of the art object is that it creates a discontinuity between itself and the unsynthesised manifold."

World's oldest person dies at 116
Family members said this year that Bolden had 40 grandchildren, 75 great-grandchildren, 150 great-great-grandchildren, 220 great-great-great grandchildren and 75 great-great-great-great grandchildren.

This is the only Guiness Record which they keep in pencil. I wonder what's the longest anybody ever held that title. That itself would be a more interesting record.

Welcome to the one-and-only all-Chanukkah radio station!
XM108 will run throughout the Festival of Lights, beginning Friday, not only with Hanukkah songs including "I Have a Little Dreidel," but also candlelight blessings.

Thus disproving the stereotype that all Jews are savvy about entertainment.

Although it does bring back memories of my family gathering around the old-fashioned radio to listen to a silent, candle-lit ceremony. It was a tradition that made our family more forgiving. For example, one year Uncle Sid broke the radio, and we didn't even care. Hell, we didn't even notice.

An alcohol screening device, however, indicated she had not been drinking.
