More like bad taste promotion than, merchandise, although the magazine will sell by the truckload, but V magazine (no, me neither), have decided to do a photo shoot of Madonna recreating Marilyn Monroe’s final moments.

That's really plumbing the depths. Crass even for Madge.

V Magazine: Madge, we'd like to use you in a photoshoot where you recreate Marilyn's death scene.
Madonna: Gee, well, I don't know. It seems a bit in poor taste.
V Magazine: Well, you get to be naked and show off your recent butt lift...and we'll pay you a shed load of money.
Madonna: OK, now you're talkin'! My fans would love that...

Madge and I are the same age and yup, maybe she has a nice bum but she'll never have cyclist's glutes. :cool:
But who’s glutes are the best? There’s only one way to find out..

Actually she looks like she’s got a good arse for cycling. My own is a bit lacking in botty padding & could do with a bit more for extra comfort on the saddle.

You need some proper botty-padding shorts. Also Bum Butter. Even some chemical depilation, if you don't read the Amazon reviews.

I recall visiting a gay pub in Hoxton (long story) about three years ago and there was a chap in there dressed exactly like Herr Flick of the Gestapo.

Bum Butter?… We're talking cycling not Last Tango in Paris..
Bum Butter or Lard Arse - it's your choice.

Edit - that's actually a perfectly serviceable product slogan. :rollingw:

This is some bright spark's idea of a pre-xmas gift for kids.
It's a supposed wearable webcam, like a magical elf-themed non-electronic curfew tag.

My kids would've slung that RIGHT over the hedge.
(Of course, I'd've purchased duplicates with cards saying

We saw you throw your Elfcam away
Don't look forward to Xmas Day
All you're getting is a kick up the bum
Unless you wear your new Elfcam for Mum.

:evillaugh:)

We'll all be wearing "elf cams" soon, all year round. Cos we can none of us be trusted to behave.
