A Mischief Of Magpies

If the Sun were the size of a beach ball then Jupiter would be the size of a golf ball and a Mischief of Magpies would be as small as a pea.

Wet Celebs

I was going to post this yesterday, but Blogger appears to be suffering from a few glitches at the moment. But better late than never...

Heath Ledger was reduced to tears after being squirted with water at a film premiere.

The actor was attending the Australian premiere of the Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain earlier this year when he was targeted by the paparazzi bearing water pistols, reportedly in response to the actor's uncooperative behaviour of the set of the film Candy.


Just to clarify here, I'm not condoning a bunch of paprazzi squirting young Mister Ledger, and neither am I suggesting that squiring celebs is necessarily a good idea. On the other hand, we are talking about a water pistol here.

Kim Ledger claims that the incident resulted in his son immediately abandoning his homeland. "Heath had to go into the cinema and introduce that film soaking wet," Kim Ledger told the Sydney Daily Telegraph. "He cried all night. He rang me and said, 'Dad, that's it. Sell the house'.


Someone has things a little out of proportion, methinks.
