Top 100 Guilty Pleasure songs

The music channel VH-1 (British version) has put together a list of the Top 100 Guilty Pleasure songs of all time – the songs you’re too ashamed to admit that you love. The irrestible cheesy songs that you always find yourself singing along to. So how many of these would you admit to liking? (Apologies for the Brit bias in the list, btw)

One point for liking the song, two points if you actually own it (on a cd or on your computer). And try to beat my score of 72.

Please?

Man Gets 20 Days in Toy Banana Flashing

STAMFORD, Conn. - A former Stamford police officer has been sentenced to 20 days in jail for lewd conduct involving a toy banana. Arthur Bertana, 63, was ordered to serve a 4 1/2 year prison term suspended after 20 days and one year of probation.

Bertana, who had been on probation for lewd conduct in Stamford more than four years ago, was arrested in March after police said he placed a toy banana in his pants and flashed people on a main Greenwich Ave.

Police said he would place a shopping bag in front of his pants, exposing a bulge to women in a sexually offensive manner.

"It was a yellow, plush, child's toy banana," Sgt. Roger Petrone Jr. said at the time of Bertana's arrest. "It had a smiley face on it."



It's the last line that makes me giggle.

Basically, this is an attempt to explain just what was going on in the background of the first three movies and especially Episode One.

Abstracted from a number of posts on Newsarama, and pieced together. Sorta makes you want to watch Episode One all over again, huh?
