When a top tabloid newspaper decides to headline a story about an online paedophile register with the words 'PERV HUNT .COM', you'd think they'd register the website address first. But The Sun didn't. Instead, a wily Popbitch user grabbed it, and is pointing all the traffic that's been generated to... The Sun's own Page 3 Rookies website, which stars 18 and 19-year old topless models. Good point, well made.

hang on, are they suggesting that nerdy readers read "perv hunt.com" in the Sun and then try and visit it??

That's sad it's clearly just a headline.

That's true! I'm surprised though.....


Still master-stroke feeding it back to their Page 3!

People always try and visit/phone fictional addresses/phone numbers etc.

I recall a story about a phone number that was used in the matrix or something, and it was a real lady's phone number and she got thousands of calls.

Oh i 've remembered it now, there's a convention that all fictional phone numbers in the US use the 555 prefix. See http://home.earthlink.net/~mthyen/

But they made some big famous show and used a non-555 number and it was a real person's. it might have been 24 now that i think about it.

Hmm, better the matrix than "call this number for great arse sex" I suppose.....

It's happened a bunch of times. That's why they started using the 555 thing in movies and TV shows, because no one has a 555 number.

Of course a lot of shows do it the opposite way these days. They put a real number in a show, and then people call it and it's an advertisement for the show or something like that.

It's sad that you know this, but I wouldn't want to begrudge you your social life.

Also, at the end of Animal House, when they're doing the summary of the characters lives after/during the great float attack, they show one of the chicks (Barbara) and say that she worked at Universal Studios. They also say that you should go to gate and ask for Babs. The credits for this and other John Landis films contain an advertisement for a tour at Universal Studios. The ad says, "Ask for Babs." As of 1989, Universal Studios no longer honors the "Ask for Babs" promotion, which was either a discount or a free entry.

No one ever calls me anyway. I smell bad even over the phone lines.

Because America is weird about sex.

I always think it's remarkable how Page 3 can make attractive half naked girls seem so unsexy.

Less than Jake also did (covered I think) a song about a girl's number written on the toilet, Jenny (8576309) or something like that. People with that phone number were not particularly amused.

Non-random fact of the day: 8675309 is a prime number.
