A Guinea Pig named "Sooty" had a night to remember after escaping from his pen and tunneling into a cage of 24 females. He romanced each of them in turn and fathered 43 offspring. Staff at Littlefriend's Farm in Pontypridd, South Wales, have now secured Sooty's pen - and begun looking for new homes for his children. His owner, Carol Feehan, said "I'm sure a lot of men will be looking at Sooty with envy. He had gone missing after wriggling through the bars of his cage. We looked everywhere, but never thought of looking in the pen where we keep 24 females. We did a head count and found 25 Guinea Pigs, Sooty fast asleep in the corner. He was absolutely shattered. We put him back in his cage and he slept for two days."

SAN FRANCISCO: It may not be OK to be a skank, but legally it is OK to be 
called one.  A California state appeals court has ruled it is not libel to 
call someone a "skank" or even a "big skank" - describing the word as "a 
derogatory slang term of recent vintage that has no generally recognized 
meaning." 

A contestant from the TV show "Who Wants to Marry a Multimillionaire," had 
sued two morning DJ's at a San Francisco radio station after they called 
her a "local loser," a "chicken-butt" and a skank" for declining their 
invitation to appear on their show.  The woman, Jennifer Seelig, was not 
amused and sued, citing slander, invasion of privacy and infliction of 
emotional distress. 

The court, found that participants in the program "voluntarily subjected 
themselves to inevitable scrutiny and potential ridicule by the public and 
the media."  Further, the court rejected the plaintiff's claim that she was
libeled, ruling there was no way to prove that the DJ's had knowingly 
perpetrated a falsehood by describing her in those terms, saying "The terms
local loser and chicken butt are not actionable, because they are too vague
to be capable of being proven true or false."  It added the same argument
applied to the phrase "big skank."
