BS THINGS THAT SOUND DIRTY IN GOLF BUT AREN’T:
• “Keep your head down and spread your legs a bit more.”
• “Mind if I join your threesome?”
• “Nuts, my shaft is bent!”
• “Look at the size of his putter!”
• “Stand with your back turned and drop it.”
• “Nice stroke, but your follow through has a lot to be desired.”
• “Hold on, I need to wash my balls first.”

BS TABLOID TRASH:
• Even though he tried to stop publication, “National Enquirer” has the scoop on Regis Philbin’s supposed extramarital tryst with a sometime cheerleader named Maria Majerek who sold her diary to the tab. Juicy excerpt: “Regis had me strip naked and put my fur coat on. It was pure raw raging sex.” (However, the diary doesn’t mention anything about the fastest finger.)
• How’d the geezers in the new movie “Space Cowboys” remember all that NASA-coached technical jargon? Co-star Tommy Lee Jones confesses to “Mr Showbiz” that sometimes he ripped out a page of script and hid it on the spaceship’s instrument panel and sometimes, he says, “you write on the back of your hand”.
• Clint Eastwood tells “TV Guide Online” he’d have no problem surviving on TV’s “Survivor”. But his “Space Cowboys” co-star James Garner says, “I’d have killed them all in a week, and that would have been the end of that.”
• Melanie Griffith reveals to “Star“, “I had my boobs done after my second child. But I didn’t make them bigger, I had them put back where they were.” (Lord knows where they had escaped to!)
• “Globe” reports that David Letterman doesn’t like lawyers in his audience because they’re too uptight to laugh at his jokes and doesn’t like women in the audience because they’re too embarrassed to laugh out loud. (Hey Dave, these days you should be happy to have ANYBODY in the audience!)
• According to “Entertainment Weekly”, newlyweds Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton didn’t take long to find their future home — it was the first and only place they looked at. Their new $4-million Beverly Hills love nest is the 11,000 sq ft, 8-bedroom estate previously owned by former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash. Billy Bob plans to record his own warblings in the mansion’s custom-built sound studio. (And what about that ‘Velcro wall’ they mentioned they dreamed of constructing?)

NOW HEAR THIS:
There’s a new ‘disposable hearing aid’ on the market. ‘The Songbird’ is aimed at aging Baby Boomers with mild hearing loss (anyone who ever went to a Who concert). It can be replaced when it wears out for about $80. To overcome Boomers’ reluctance to admit they’re getting old, it’s being marketed as a solution for noise-induced, as opposed to age-related, hearing loss. (For people who can still “see for miles and miles” but can’t hear a damn thing.)

DO YOU FLOSS AFTERWARD?
One of the latest fads in Japan is ‘Skin Brushing’. Proponents say a daily 5-minute session using a long-handled natural brush starting with the feet and moving upward stimulates the lymphatic system and helps eliminate toxins. (For a real thrill, try a wire brush.)
