This is an attempt to derail Australian model Sarah Jane in her attempt to get into the Guinness Book of Records. They've won enough this summer already :)

Who can resist the lure of wrinkly stockings?

They're going to have a long way to go to catch up with Danni Ashe.

Hey, she's prettier than Maggie Thatcher.

Ground zero for the whole "most downloaded" movement.

It's a bollocks category, anyway, derived from the notorious fiction that is web access statistics. Unless Norris McWhirter analyses every access log of every web server, and I doubt even he's up to that.

I actually think this is a surreptitious bid to win the record for Fi Glover.

But, you have to admit, she (Ms. Ashe) has lovely breasts.

I don't know about Ms. Jane - I can't reach her site.

Janet Street-Porter isn't even in the running? Shame.

*sigh*... Danni Ashe... :) Thanks for the mammaries! Damn fine looking woman, much better than that plasticky Cindy Margolis ho'.

Y'know, before she started posting her pictures to newsgroups, and then started the website, and making the bajillions of dollars, Danni used to dance at the Deja Vu on Lake City Way right here in Seattle! Uh, not that I go to places like that of course. I just read that somewhere.

Yep, another patented Hal Incandenza thread- stopping post. It's like a gift, I can't explain it...
