BS SIGNS YOU ARE GOING TO DIE A VIRGIN:
• When you ‘slip into something more comfortable’, it’s usually sweat pants.
• Prostitutes regularly pay you NOT to have sex with them.
• People often say you bear a striking resemblance to ‘Mimi’ on “Drew Carey Show”.
• Often find yourself wondering, “Should there be cobwebs on my penis?”
• Your boyfriend dumped you for Chelsea Clinton.

BS SHOW BIZ BUZZ:
Tomorrow they’ll hand out the 9th annual “MTV Movie Awards”, famous for unconventional categories like ‘Best Villain’ and ‘Best Kiss’, but we won’t see it till it airs next Thursday (“Spy Who Shagged Me” & “The Matrix” lead noms with 6 each) . . . From the ‘PLEASE GOD, NO!!!!’ dept – word is Kathie Lee Gifford is in talks to star in her own CBS-TV sitcom . . . Lawyers for Julia Roberts have successfully seized Web domain name ‘juliaroberts.com’, up until now a gathering spot for her fans (who are starting a new site called ‘thatbitch.com’) . . .  “Millionaire” host Regis Philbin is writing a memoir called “Who Wants to Be Me?”, a ‘collection of his thoughts’ (can you write a book using a Teleprompter?).

TODAY’S MOVIE OPENINGS:
Martin Lawrence plays an FBI agent who disguises himself as a full-figured Southern mammy in the comedy “Big Momma’s House” (setting race relations back 50 years) . . . The family flick “Running Free”, the tale of a horse’s life from the horse’s point of view, follows the adventures of ‘Lucky’ in remote Namibia.

ROSE REJECTED FROM REDS RALLY:
Tomorrow in Cincinnati, they’re holding a 25th anniversary reunion of one of the greatest-ever baseball teams, the  legendary 1975 World Series Champion Reds nicknamed ‘The Big Red Machine’, which  includes 3 Hall of Famers — Joe Morgan, Tony Perez & Johnny Bench. The only black mark on the celebration — baseball commissioner Bud Selig has decreed should-be Hall of Famer  Pete Rose cannot participate. (How can you keep enforcing a suspension on OTB’s ‘Man of the Century’? C’mon, young gamblers NEED a role model!)

TOO STUPID FOR US TO MAKE UP:
• UK’s Electrotextiles is developing a computer keyboard made of ‘smart fabric’ that eventually may be sewn into clothing. To use your PC in the future, you may be able to just sit down and start tapping on your lap (“Oh pardon me, I just needed to borrow your lap to answer e-mail”). They’re also making a necktie that functions as a mouse (enabling you to further look like a total moron).
• Scientists in Thailand have developed a way to turn human excrement into fuel. A newly-developed reactor blasts human waste with hot nitrogen gas, turning it into a high-grade fuel they’re calling ‘bio-oil’. (The downside is, if you get constipated in the winter, you freeze.)
• Over the past 3 months, some 30 people have sighted a gigantic reptile similar to the ‘Loch Ness Monster’ swimming in Florida’s Lake Okeechobee. The ‘Lake Okeechobee Monster’ is estimated to be 65 ft long, 10-15 ft longer than ‘Nessie’. (And the 30 members of the Everglades Area Tourism Association also hope that it will attract about 20% more curiosity-seekers.)
