My liability and I... 'Do you still throw spears at each other?'
Prince Philip has succeeded in insulting the Chinese, Indians, Russians, Pacific islanders and Scots during the Queen's 50 years as monarch. Yesterday, he added Aborigines to the list.
Accompanying the Queen on a visit to the Tjapukai Aboriginal cultural park near the northern Australian town of Cairns, Prince Philip stopped to speak to a group of Aborigine elders. William Brim, 42, the park founder, said the prince asked: "Do you still throw spears at each other?"
"No we don't do that any more," replied Mr Brim.

Jen Love Hewitt in Playboy magazine!
I just read this on a celebrity site. Here's the column. "As of Friday, February 15th, the Hef-man is king. With all of the beautiful women he has introduced to the male demographic, from Pamela to Marilyn, there is a new name to be inducted into the Mansion. Jennifer Love Hewitt. As of Friday afternoon, the hot 20-something starlet signed a deal to pose in the August 2002 issue, which is said to be one of the most expensive deals in the history of the magazine. Her publicist kept her comments short and sweet, simply saying 'Love feels that this is a big step forward in her career, and should lead to bigger and better things'. Bigger and better things indeed, but mostly from the midsection of those men who purchase the Summer issue. The issue is planned to have Love gracing the cover, and having anywhere from nine pictures to 20-plus pictures, depending on the kind of buzz that is generated from future publicity. (This author is hoping for the 20 photo deal) So mark your calendars, cross your fingers, and save your money. The temptation and teasing ends this summer."

As much as I'd like to believe this, it doesn't mention exactly what "celebrity site" the story came from. I'll believe it when I see it otherwise it's still a vicious rumour.
