David "Shorty" and Juliette "Snow White" Colbert
Yankee Joe, out of Oregon, 503363608: we didn't get his rank I'm afraid,
but we promise not to let the Feds know you're here, Joe.
Valerie with little'un Damien: Valerie has the rare gift of appearing
elegant while sipping
beer from a bed-pan.
Sheynaz, with her son Kay. Bit of a split personality is Sheynaz - last
week she was Reena.

him while saying
it, which is.
Anand (got done again), for his stylish appearance and services to the
"laydeez" shall henceforth be called "Casanova". [Ladies, please form an orderly
The committee was faced with a stiff dilemma today: whether to penalise
Barbie Doll for
prematurely removing the shirt, or reward her for revealing the bikini
underneath it. As it
