Monty Burns The Worker 

The voice-over actors for the Spanish version of The Simpsons have gone on strike. The company which hires them has breached its contract by hiring non-union workers, though it claims that because its name has changed the contract is anyway void. Hah.

These actors earn about $40 per episode. Perhaps ironically, the main US simpsons cast struck over pay last year too. Apparently $125,000 an episode wouldn't do...

Gimme Back My Shirt! 

Here's a site that takes the piss out of the covers of romance novels.

Nudity Warning: The first thing you see is a big 'man-chest'. It was enough to put me off heterosexuality, and even bisexuality, for good. Didn't take much, though.

Backdown the Bid 

A bit for those who don't want London to win the Olympic bid for 2012.
