Here’s why: They think Benny Hill is funny, beer should be served warm, and this thing is sexy.
For those interested, this is Jodie Marsh, a “famous” Page Three girl at a movie premiere earlier this week in London. Now you might be wondering if she somehow forgot part of her costume, but I can assure you that’s not the case – this is all there is. And just in case you didn’t notice what she’s “famous” for, she’s pointing them out to you.
I’m just curious … how low must your self-esteem be that you are willing to butcher yourself in this fashion and then humiliate yourself in public as an encore? What is she going to look like in 20 years? It can’t be any scarier than she looks now, that for damned sure! Give it a couple of years and I’m sure you’ll find her plying her trade on a corner somewhere.
Her parents must be so proud …

There’s no question that my beloved Florida Marlins are playing far above expectation, and that the Fish Fans are able to enjoy baseball in a way none of us expected to do this season. But that does little to erase the memory of the offseason dismantling that forced us to play so many rookies in the first place. One need only look at how the past Marlins are playing to get a sense of where we might have been this season:
- Josh Beckett – An 8-3 record and 82 strikeouts for the Red Sox; having the blister-free Cy Young season we knew he had in him.
- Mike Lowell – Batting .307 with 9 home runs and only 4 errors for the Red Sox; far from the ballast weight the Marlins considered him to be.
- Carlos Delgado – 22 home runs for the Mets; part of a new “Murder’s Row”.
- Paul LoDuca – Only 5 errors behind the plate for the Mets; on his way to the All-Star game.
I could go on, but you get the point. Now there’s nothing to say that any of these guys could have performed like this for the Marlins this year; nothing inspires a player like getting traded (except for a contract year). But they were thisclose to the playoffs last year, and with the Braves imploding this season there’d have been no one else in the East to challenge them (don’t even say the Mets – they’re riding the backs of a bunch of ex-Fish!).
Oh well … at least we got the kids! :laugh:
