Police urge women to wear nice panties

Police in Suffolk, England are hoping their tongue-in-cheek reminder to women gets the message across. In their premier issue of Safe! magazine Suffolk Police have warned women that, if you’ve got it don’t flaunt it.

If you fall over or pass out, remember your skirt or dress may ride up. You could show off more than you intended - for all our sakes, please make sure you’re wearing nice pants and that you’ve recently had a wax.

Accompanying the caption are a pictures of a scantily clad women slumped over on the ground — presumably showing more than they intended. With most of the world writing about the magazine, which will be distributed for free in pubs, clubs, hairdressers, schools and colleges across the UK, it’s safe to say that they have at least succeeded in getting their message out there.

The Manbag

The ManBag

Whether you call it a manpurse, a pack or a manbag, real men still stick their stuff in their pockets … or do they. While the size of gadgets are just pushing the edge of what’s pocketable, the number of gadgets we carry around seems to be rising. This makes it often times awkward to stuff that cell phone, BlackBerry, PDA and/or iPod down your pants all at once — nice package bulge.

Smaller than a sports bag and often more stylish to boot, the manbag is becoming a must-have item for all UK gadget fans keen to stow their multiple devices
. According to a survey, 4% of men still opt for the Batman utility belt look, strapping all their gadgets around their waist; while 32% still manage to fit everything in their pockets. This leaves an overwhelming majority choosing to use a purse bag. Interesting.

Lindsay Lohan in GQ

Lindsay Lohan lets us know what’s on her mind in the UK issue of GQ Magazine with several great quotes of the day…

Redheads are more passionate and more sexual than other girls.

Smoking is a dirty habit. It’s a dirty habit for a dirty little girl.

I like my body. And I like my breasts. And no, they’re not fake.

I don’t know if I could be monogamous. I don’t want to be with just one person.

Victoria Beckham has a bad hair day

Victoria Beckham black bra

Would you fly 500 miles to get your hair done? Victoria Beckham would. Victoria reportedly flew 550 miles, from Germany to the UK, for a haircut. Apparently she was furious after a photo of her taken last week made it look as though she was developing a bald spot. The former Spice Girl, who is in Germany watching her husband play in the World Cup, phoned her stylist asking if they could fly out, but ended up going to London for a new set of hair extensions. She wanted it sorted out before the Portugal game.

Lynx Billions of Babes in Bikinis ad

Lynx (Axe to those of us in the States), aired their latest body spray commercial in the UK just prior to the England vs Sweden soccer football game the other night. The spot was aptly titled, Billions of Bikini Babes. I think they got their point across, Spray More. Get More.

They’ve proven once again that bouncing girls in bikinis can sell a guy anything…

Paris Hilton is pelted with powder

Paris Hilton kicked off fashion week in London with a bang by getting herself pelted with powder by PETA activists.

The US socialite opened Julien Macdonald’s show on the first night wearing diamonds valued at 2m [pounds].

But animal rights campaigners from Peta showered flour over Hilton and the designer, who uses fur, as they went to an after-show party in Mayfair.

So is it just me, or does Julien Macdonald look a lot like the King of Pop, Michael Jackson? Maybe it’s all that white flour and the red jacket … and leave it to Paris to let it all hang out in the back. Classy Paris, classy.

No smokes for you

After a long debate, the UK Parliament voted on Tuesday to join the several countries and handful of states in the US that have already implemented a smoking ban. Indoor smoking in England will now be prohibited in public places.

The decision, by an unexpectedly high margin of 384 to 184, brought England into line with Ireland, which barred smoking in public places in March 2004, and with Scotland and Northern Ireland, where bans are to come into force over the next 13 months. The local parliament in Wales has also said it will seek a full ban. The English ban is expected to come into effect next year.

Dannii Minogue dancing dirty

Dannii Minogue, sister of pop sensation Kylie Minogue, was caught on camera at the London strip club Puss in Boots violating the infamous ‘no touch’ policy. Dannii was caught pleasuring and fondling a blonde stripper at the club.

Another astonished punter told us: “Dannii was having the time of her life and didn’t care who saw. She wasn’t in a private booth or the VIP area, she was on the dance floor.

“I can’t believe how far they went. It was more like a porn film. There were hands and tongues everywhere-I thought it was going to turn into a full-on orgy.”

NFSW images of the alleged simulated sex romp can be seen on Egotastic.

A whale of a tale

A whale, yes whale, was spotted swimming in the Thames river in central London this morning.

The 16-18ft (5m) northern bottle-nosed whale, which is usually found in deep sea waters, has been seen as far upstream as Chelsea.

A rescue boat has been sent to protect the whale and rescuers have been trying to keep it away from the river banks.

The RNLI say it is the first whale rescue on the Thames. A spokesman said three whales were spotted east of the Thames Barrier on Thursday but only one managed to get upstream.

But at 0830 GMT on Friday, a man on a train called in to say he might have been hallucinating, but he had just seen a whale in the Thames.

I’m surprised it can even survive in that river of toxic waste!

Kate Beckinsale wants return to the UK

After moving to LA 4 years ago, following the filming of Pearl Harbor, Kate Beckinsale is ready to call it quits and return to the UK to raise her daughter.

She is quoted in Britain’s Daily Star newspaper as saying: ‘I’ve bought a house in Notting Hill. It’ll be nice to come back and do a play.

‘I feel like I’ve been down a particular sort of rabbit hole for a while, mainly motherhood, and I’m just sort of popping out of it. After all I’m not doing a very good job at conquering Hollywood.’

Conquering Hollywood is all about getting the formula right — you have to be hot, you have to get drunk, you have to party, and you have to let the paparazzi take revealing photos of you … or, you have to talk a lot about your boobs … or, you have to marry Jessica Simpson. Kate has the hot part down better than most, (un)fortunately she’s missing the other elements — which is a good thing, but that also means she’ll never conquer Hollywood.
