god save the queen

A microsite we developed for Brooke Valentine, called Celebrity Girlfight, was just profiled in today's Daily Star in the UK. From the article:

Brooke Valentine is mounting an aggressive assault on the charts - by inviting fans to beat up Beyonce and J.Lo. The singer, 19, has set up celebritygirlfight.com, where punters can punch up cartoon versions of the top divas plus Christina Aguilera, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. It's all to promote her debut track Girlfight. She said: "I can't say that I fought a lot of girls growing up. A lot of girls wanted to fight me for some strange reason. Brooke had to do what she had do do...."

We're still getting over the silly words the brits use - like "punters", and forgiving their journalistic accuracy, as Christina Aguilera is not yet in the game.

Oh thanks so much for very graciously forgiving us brits for our journalistic inaccuracy, Bill Bailey (a very funny Brit standup comic, for those in the USA)had this to say about some US TV host.

"There's this one celebrity, Rosie O'Donnell, a talk show host, and she said this: "I don't know anything about Afghanistan, but I know it's full of terrorists, speaking as a mother."

So what is this 'speaking as a mother' then? Is it a euphemism for 'talking out of my arse'? 'Suspending rational thought for a moment'?

As a rational human being, Al-Qaeda are a loose association of psychopathic zealots who could be rounded up with a sustained police investigation. But speaking as a parent, they're all eight foot tall, they've got lasers under their moustaches, a huge eye in their foreheads and the only way to kill them is to nuke every country that hasn't sent us a Christmas card in the the last 20 years. Speaking as a mother..."

Us brits with our silly little english words, I know the english language is said to be one of the most difficult to master - apparently American's are still trying - bless 'em - good NIGHT. :P
