1. If you're easily seduced by shellfish—or just need a good laugh—look at Prawnography.net, "home of the hardcore crustacean." (Even the use of ".net" instead of ".com" seems a little fishy.) Pick your poison: the gay page features hordes of horny aquatic life (including queen scallops and hot group action) while the Fetish page showcases pierced and, um, battered creatures. You can even send in a seaworthy feature to be printed in the News page ("The mussel-bound individual ... "). OK—I'll clam up and let you enjoy.
2. Looking at this year's Oscar fashions (from J.Lo's diaphanous get-up to Bjork's swan dive) made me wonder about Mr. Blackwell. Go to www.mrblackwell.com and catch up on more than four decades of put-downs and insults. Who else can get away with calling Charo "a rumbleseat [sic] with a pushed-up front" or saying that the Duchess of York "looks like an unemployed barmaid in search of a crown"?
