Lede of the week: Imagine if Peter Pan had been a fucked-up teenage vagrant with a permanent hard-on, Wendy had been a cum-drenched junkie living in Brooklyn and Captain Hook had looked something like Mickey Rourke - you’d think to yourself, “I bet Larry Clark had something to do with this”. - LA Weekly's Style Council

Stoke of the week: "While no one would ever confuse Paris Hilton with Mother Teresa, a homeless man got lucky (oh stop it) when he caught the Hollywood heiress at a McDonald's drive-thru in LA and she gave him a $100 bill." - US Magazine

Excuse of the week: 89 year-old George Weller on how it was that he killed 10 people when the car that he was driving plowed into a crowd at a Farmer's Market in Santa Monica three years ago: ""It seems to me that it was the vehicle itself responding, because I sure as hell didn't have control over it. I was trying my best." - CBS2
