: FEMALE OR SHEMALE ... 2!
  It's back, and this time with balls.

  A month ago we launched a silly little quiz
  called Female or Shemale. We knocked it up in
  an hour or two and it made us laugh.

  We didn't expect it to get 100 million hits.

  And we didn't expect it to get us thrown off
  two (count them) web servers.

  Anyway, we're curious if doing exactly the
  same idea will work again.

  And so that's what we've done.

-------------------------------------------------

: STICK YOUR BOSSES FACE ON A PORNO PIC
  With this handy automated tool.

  It's the oldest trick in the book. You're
  sitting bored in the office so you download
  a pic of your boss from the corporate
  intranet, stick it on a picture of a nice
  young lady sucking on a penis and show it
  to your work mates. They all think it's
  hilarious.

  And now? Catch up! It's the 21st century!

  B3ta member, Ian Beveridge, has made the
  process dead easy, by removing all the
  difficult bits, and automating the process
  into three clicks.

  Woo for causing chaos in your office. And
  if you get sacked? Tell us, it'll make a good
  story for the next newsletter.

: GAZ TOP INTERVIEW
  He never shagged Janet Street Porter

  Gaz Top is a UK children's TV presenter, and
  for some inexplicable reason the people on
  the B3ta board love him.

  We had no choice put to get in touch and 
  interview him.
 
  We did learn one curious fact from him though,
  Pillock is Old English for penis, derived
  from the archaic word, "pillcock". Oh and
  he never had sex with Janet Street Porter,
  but then we only threw that question in
  because we are cretins.

  Read the full interview.

  (BTW: Are you a celeb? Do know any celebs?
  If you can get us access without us having
  to deal with agents & PAs then we'll love you
  for ever. Send details to http://www.b3ta.com/mailus/)

: THE RATHERGOOD CORNER
  With bunnies, ducks & kittens.

  Joel Veitch runs a site called rathergood.
  He's our mate and we love his deranged work.

  He's done so much stupid stuff this week that
  we've given him his own special section.

  Joel writes - 

  "Do you remember that I asked B3ta people to
  buy my merchandise, so that I could raise
  enough money to blow up a Big-Arsed Bunny?
  Well I've finally got round to putting the
  video online. It's great - and I've shoved
  my favourite rave tune on it.

  "Oh, there was the Little Rocket Duckling too.
http://www.btinternet.com/~e.veitch/video/duckgobang.mpg


  "After that, I thought I'd better balance the
  Evil with Good, so I made this Kitten Band
  playing happy music on a beach. What could
  be more lovely?"

: WHAT B3TA PEOPLE HAVE BEEN MAKING THIS WEEK 
  Get Stu a Job, Swearing, & Weasels.

  Tom Wood writes -
  "I put together this web site because my mate 
  Stuart won't get a job and just sits in his
  room watching TV and playing Playstation."
http://www.geocities.com/stugetajob/

  Nikart writes -
  "I'm trying to find artistic depictions of
  swear words for my website. I've done some
  but I need more. It's just something I'm doing
  to stop myself from killing small animals."
http://www.nikart.com/dirty/dirty.html

  B3ta boarder Sam has put together this
  sweet little animated cartoon about
  a the adventures of a weasel. It's a large
  1.4MB download, but it's very nice.

: SITES IN BRIEF 
  Stuff we like that wasn't made by our mates.

  Blimey! You can buy a fighter jet online! It's
  got an add to cart button and everything. We
  want one.

: HOW TO SPEND YOUR MONEY
  Import foreign confectionary from Japan.  

  Lara Nicholson writes - 

  "It's great. I've had Ant Chocolate - milk
  chocolate containing edible ants that comes in
  a petri dish - crunchy.

  "And Japanese Kinder Eggs - the packaging was
  cool and kitsch and the toy was a real quality
  toy. Not like the usual Kinder stuff."

  (BTW: If you've bought something fun on the
  Internet, let us know at http://www.b3ta.com/mailus/)

: MP3 BOOTLEG OF THE WEEK
  Radiohead Vs Olive?

  Each week we ask the_dr from the Boom Selection
  site to tell us about his favourite bootleg MP3s
  which are doing the rounds on the Internet.
  
  the_dr writes - 
  "This is my favourite track at the moment.
  It's Radiohead's Idioteque vs Olive's You're
  not alone - it's shouldn't work but it does.
http://boom.phink.net/approved/sonof_-_your_not_idioteque.mp3

  "If you want more background on the cut up
  music scene then check out this Radio 1
  documentary. It's got clips of nearly every
  bootleg of note, and interviews with the
  people behind them. It's a 14MB download though
  - ouch!"

  PLUG: If you like this stuff, then you can
  download more at the_dr's site.

: B3TA IMAGE CHALLENGE
  Results - When X Attack - The Worst Job Ever

  Each week we run a competition to test your
  creative skills. We set a challenge and you
  open Photoshop and mess with our tiny minds.

  Last week we asked for ideas for a crappy
  TV series called "When X Attack", and you
  came up trumps.
http://b3ta.com/challenge/whenxattack/

  The winner? Maccaman's "David Attenbrough
  and the Karate Bear" for its lovely walking
  action and total stupidity.
http://users.anytimenow.com/maccaman/wtf.gif

  And this week? We hate working. It interferes
  with our surf time, and so we're interested
  in your worst job ever.

-------------------------------------------------

: MEDIA WATCH
  We've been rumbled.
  
  "I wanted to write a Sunday Times column about
  B3ta, but every time I tried to do it, you'd
  run a picture of a cock or something on your
  front page, and they wouldn't let me."
                   Danny O'Brien, UK Journalist.
