Mone’s totty request is as follows: “What about some long haired guy?”

Mone left no specific instructions, simply “What about some long haired guy?”

So left to my own devices, I’m posting a photo of WILLIE NELSON, the “Red Headed Stranger.” True, he’s not conventional totty material but Willie is music to my ears.

Willie Nelson, born April 30, 1933 in Abbott, Texas. Country music legend and author of a new book entitled The Tao of Willie.

Video clip of The Highwaymen (Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, the late Waylon Jennings and the late Johnny Cash) performing Highwayman live.

And Mone? If you wish to delve further into the realm of the long-haired male, visit the Gallery of Long-Haired Men.

Be thankful you don’t live in North Korea where they’ve waged war on long hair and men are encouraged to get a haircut every 15 days.

Extreme Ironing

Last Friday, 55 New Zealand divers smashed the world record for the most people ironing under water at the same time - under 29 metres of water.

Extreme Ironing is a sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well-pressed shirt.

Colin Farrell: Still Dirty at Thirty

Naughty totty!

Colin Farrell, born May 31, 1976, turns 30 today.


Today’s tantalizing totty was requested by Wyndham because, and I quote, Wyndham is “really keen-on-er.”

Catherine Keener is an Oscar-nominated American actress born March 26, 1960 in Miami, Florida.

Amongst other roles, Keener played femme fatale Maxine in Being John Malkovich; a single mom wooed by the inexperienced Andy in The 40-Year-Old Virgin; writer Harper Lee in Capote, and screenwriter Christine in Friends With Money.

My attempt at pleasing both Wyndham and Prunella as Prunella requested pics of Jake Gyllenhaal. Here they are together in Lovely and Amazing. Jake and Catherine, not Wyndham and Prunella.

Feet exposed!

Is Ms. Keener waving at you, Wyndham?

Why yes! I do believe she’s inviting you over!


With the FIFA 2006 World Cup fast approaching, it’s time I started posting some football totty, wouldn’t you agree?

First up, Team USA’s Pablo Mastroeni.

Mount St. Helens Volcano Cam

Mount St. Helens in Washington State shot a steam and ash plume at least 16,000 feet into the air Monday after a large rockfall from the lava dome in the volcano's crater.

The crater was formed by the volcano's deadly May 18, 1980 eruption that killed 57 people and blasted about 1,300 feet off the then-9,677-foot peak.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, there was no explosion and events such as this one are expected during lava dome growth.

Those who like to keep their eyes open for activity can monitor the Mount St. Helens VolcanoCam.

Totty Week begins with a bang with these hot shots of Adrian Brody. Or is it Adrien Brody with an “e”? No two news sources agree.

Adrian Brody is an Oscar-winning American actor born in Woodhaven, Queens, New York on April 14, 1973.

This request goes out to “Portrait of a Lady” who was first to answer the call for top totty. Now let’s get down to the goods…

Totty Week

The request lines are open

Hey everybody! It’s Totty Week on Infomaniac!

The request lines are open. Got a favourite prime piece of totty? Want to see their photo posted here? Leave a comment and I’ll fill your requests all this week in the order they come in.

Translation for Canadians and Americans: "Totty" is a British slang term for a sexually attractive man or woman, i.e. “eye candy” or “hottie.”

I’ve already filled Frobisher’s request with Ben Cohen pics and Lippy’s request for a photo of Jeremy Guscott. Requests can be for any public figure or celebrity.

Over to the rest of you now.

Ben Cohen

Lord Frobisher requested that I post a few photos of English rugby player Ben Cohen. G’won then. Eat it up, Frobi.

Update: New Ben Cohen photo! Via Bill at Tottyland ...

Photographing Squirrels … continued

Earlier this week I posted a link to Scott Alan Johnson’s ‘flickr’ photographs of squirrels posed with vintage cameras. Please visit Scott’s “Photographing Squirrels” website to see more!

Heist of the Week

Yarn Thieves

A 68-year-old woman and her accomplice stole $13,000 worth of wool this week from a yarn shop in Atlanta.

“She looked like your typical grandmother,” said shop owner Debi Light.

Hell's Grannies

This heist puts me in mind of Monty Python’s “Hell’s Grannies” sketch. Gangs of old ladies are terrorizing the city. These layabouts in lace knock over telephone kiosks and shove people off the pavement.

A young couple are interviewed about their gran who has become addicted to crochet and gets violent if she doesn’t get her 20-balls-of-wool-a-day. Seconds later we see the The Hell’s Grannies ride into a shop on their motorbikes. We can only suppose they’re robbing the store to pay for their next crochet fix.

Happy Birthday, Helen

Today is the birthday of our Helen, otherwise known as Midget Arse.

In a celebratory mood, she started into the vodka about 24 hours before her big day. Then she went out on the town where this account by Tazzy and Piggy would lead us to believe she was out on the town with them.

However, a reliable source reports she was out with her date Big John.

It is reported she fell face first into her cake and, as you read this, she is still sleeping it off, as pictured below.

Loincloths: The New Japanese Fashion Trend

The Mitsukoshi department store in Tokyo's Ginza district reports a boom in the sale of loincloths.

Known in Japan as fundoshi, these traditional garments went out of fashion decades ago but they’re making a huge comeback.

"They're unconstrained and have got good ventilation, and they're suited for Japan's humid summers," a department store official said.

Many businessmen are buying fundoshi as “power underwear” to wear when they want good results at work.

If you’re short on cash, here’s how to make your own loincloth.

Mark Roberts – The Streaker™

Streaker Mark Roberts at the 2006 Olympics with strategically-placed rubber chicken

Mark Roberts, The Streaker™, is the world’s number one serial streaker.

Mark has performed more than 300 streaks including a prance across the ice at the 2006 Winter Olympics Curling event. He’s also bared his wares at the Royal Ascot, Wimbledon, the FA Cup Final, the Grand National and the Superbowl.

“I will keep streaking as long as it gives me a buzz and as long as the crowd enjoys it! The next sporting venue you attend, keep an eye out for me!”

Silicone Flesh Cushion

If, like me, you spend a lot of time sitting around on your arse, maybe you could use a little extra “Sitzfleisch”… flesh for sitting.

The Silicone Flesh Cushion mimics the characteristics of human flesh, giving you extra comfort.

Dinah Washington – Long John Blues

Dinah Washington is one of my favourite vocalists and I’ve been meaning to post about her sooner. Well there’s no time like the present as Prunella must visit the dentist today. So this song is for you, Prunella.

In Long John Blues Dinah sings about visiting “Long John,” the dentist with the golden touch. She sums it up best when she sings,You thrill me when you drill me, and I need you very much.

If you visit Amazon and scroll down to #4: Long John Blues, you can listen to a sample.

Long John Blues

I've got a dentist who's over seven feet tall
Yes, I've got a dentist who's over seven feet tall
Long John they call him, and he answers every call

Well, I went to Long Johns office and told him the pain was killin'
Yes, I went to Long Johns office and told him the pain was killin'
He told me not to worry, that my cavity just needed fillin'

He said, "When I start drillin', I'll have to give you novocaine"
He said, "Yes, when I start drillin', I'll have to give you novocaine"
Cause ev'ry woman just can't stand the pain"

He took out his trusted drill and he told me to open wide
He said he wouldn't hurt me but he'd fill my hole inside
Long John, Long John, you've got that golden touch

You thrill me when you drill me, and I need you very much

When he got through, he said "Baby, that will cost you ten"
Yes when he got through, he said "Baby, that will cost you ten
Six months from now, come back and see me again"

Say you're supposed to see your dentist 'bout twice a year, that's right
But I think I feel it throbbin', yes, I'll go back there tonight
Long John, Long John, don't ever move away
Say, I hope I keep on achin' so I can see you every day

Infomaniac recommends reading Queen : The Life and Music of Dinah Washington by Nadine Cohodas and listening to Dinah Washington with the lights low and a martini.
