Flavour of the day

According to an exclusive interview given to E-Online, Miranda Tozier Robbins has said she actually is a fan of the Spice Girls and not Britney Spears. I guess Scary spice is not the scariest thing about Spice Girls anymore.

She also said that she was just trying to prepare for a documentary near Britney’s residence when she was arrested. That was why she was carrying the camera and wearing camouflage clothes. Ya sure, in that case it’d be a while till someone sees Michael Moore. He,too, must be lying hidden in poisnous weed near some celebrity’s gun-weilding ranch-house.

Anyhow, i just have one thing to say to the Spice Girls. A reunion is probably not the best idea considering the circumstances as well as the fact that Miranda still owns those camouflage outfits. Who knows, which one of the Spice Girls would be the first to hear their plants sneeze!!

This must be one of the funniest hijacking incidents in the world. I know hijacking is never a laughing matter. Not unless, you’ve got Harrison Ford fighting the Russians bare-fist but this recent hijacking of a Canadian charter jet in Montego Bay, Jamaica is a very funny episode. Here’s why.

Reason why Stephen Fray (the hijacker and with no relation to the band, The Fray even though he might already be singing “How to save a life” soon) is going to have a tough time explaining his crime in prison:

1) Reuters reported “A would-be hijacker surrendered to authorities on Monday after agreeing to free the last of more than 180 hostages”.

What exactly does the phrase “would-be hijacker” mean? Are the officials not going to count this hijacking? Is it a one-off for Stephen? He’s not getting married to hijacking, is he? Do people expect him to be a successful hijacker with more exposure? Do they expect him to hijack a plane again? Would he never get a window seat again for the rest of his life? My questions wait for their “would-be” answers…

2) Reuters reported “The suspect, armed with a .38-calibre revolver, surrendered peacefully to heavily armed police and soldiers who stormed the CanJet plane he had commandeered”

If Stephen Fry knew what he was doing, he would’ve got a bigger gun. Maybe even outsourced some of his work to Al-Qaeda or Taliban but hey, it’s trendy to be against outsourcing. This is what you get for being trendy. Let me reiterate the fact with some pictures.

This is what Stephen Fry carried...a .38 calibre-revolver...

and this is what 'Heavily armed police' looks like.

With much pondering over both the pictures, I’m starting to get a feeling maybe Stephen was a bit short-handed. What do you say?

3) Jamaican Information Minister Daryl Vaz told CNN that “This is the case of a troubled young man. He definitely has had some mental challenges.”

He said that “Originally, his demands were to be flown to Cuba because the flight actually was going to Cuba and then back to Halifax. That really was his demand. Then, Fray had an apparent change of heart about flying to communist Cuba and changed his request to Europe.”

How do you explain that to your fellow mates in prison? “I couldn’t choose where I wanted to escape to; I had rest of the plan etched on my mind“!!!

Maybe they didn’t have a window seat on the flight to Cuba? It wasn’t like Cuba became communist when he was trying to hijack the plane. Make your mind up, Stephen.

4) Reuters reported that the Jamaican government had said that it would compensate passengers for cash or other valuables they forked over to the “would-be hijacker”, some in an apparent bid to win their safe release.

I’m sure if we get some footage of an on-board camera on the plane, we would see that it was actually Stephen who was ‘forking valuables‘ over to the passengers in exchange of some information on the best holiday spots in Europe…or was it Cuba…? Stephen might have even offered his .38 calibre revolver’ to someone who could tell him if Cuba was still communist or not?

We’ll be keeping track of Stephen Fray’s story for the weeks to come. I’m sure the lad is not going to disappoint. Wishing the ‘would-be hijacker‘ all the very best for the future. I’ll see you on the next flight to Cuba…No wait…Doh!!

Here are the ingredients Jeannie Dalton used to create hers.

1) Jeannine Dalton was born Jeannine Boger in February 1959.

2) Jeannine was Miss North Carolina USA in 1982 and her state’s representative at Miss USA the same year.

3) Jeannine is the mother of three ‘fabulous’ beauty queens (that sounds like your average American family, right?)

4) Her daughter, Kristen Dalton is in the limelight with her recent victory at the Miss USA 2009. Just like her mother, Kristen also won Miss North Carolina USA this year. That sure does her mother proud. (Wonder, how she would have fit in the family if she hadn’t won?)

5) Then Jeannine has Kenzie Dalton, who is a model and an upcoming actress. She has already chalked up appearances on television shows such as One Tree Hill. If that’s not enough for her mom to be proud, she is also engaged to Chad Michael Murray. (Well, who isn’t, right?)

6) Last but not the least; Jeannine has Julia Dalton, the youngest of three, who was Miss North Carolina Teen USA 2008 and also the second runner up at Miss Teen USA 2008. (I’d say, she’s well on her way to upkeep the Dalton legacy)

The recipe I see here is certainly one of a moral and social disaster. This is not your average American family. Does this not look like a family ‘manufacturing’ beauty queens? Do you think children deserve a childhood of vanity over innocence? Then, what stops us from doing something about it and creating more awareness. Let’s give every child a reason to smile for themselves, not for the cameras or judges.
