: WHAT WE'VE DONE THIS WEEK 
  Other than twiddle our thumbs

  >> Tramp O Claus <<
  "I was walking home from the pub," writes 
  Rob Manuel, "and me and my missus saw a really
  rubbish looking Santa poster. He looked more
  like a tramp, really. So we started singing
  a little song about it. Thought it might be
  nice as a special little Christmas card for
  b3ta readers."

  >> Disney Tattoo guy interviewed <<
  "I was sniffing about on the web," writes
  Fraser Lewry, "and I found this bloke who has
  87% of his body covered by Disney tattoos.
  I thought it would be great to interview him
  for b3ta." Yay. This guy is a bit of a
  publicity hound and also asks if we can get
  him onto UK telly. Louis Theroux are you 
  reading this? Here's is one for you.

  >> Face Magazine photoshops <<
  UK style magazine The Face got in touch and
  asked our message boarders to re-design their
  cover for them. They're printed in this months
  issue. But here's a scan too:

  >> New Weebl and Bob << 
  This week Weebl appears on a chat show and 
  watches a load of episode outtakes. Huzzah.

: SOME STUFF TO READ
  That should keep you busy this afternoon

  >> Stupid Japanese Questions <<
  Learn why Japanese people slurp noodles,
  why cucumbers are described as green and
  which tube line is the best for suicides.
  Fascinating stuff. This site would make
  a great book.

: B3TA RADIO
  Your dad's worst gags
  
  On this week's B3ta Radio we'll be laughing
  at the worst gags the collective dads of
  the b3ta-verse have ever cracked.

  As usual we've had hundreds of suggestions.
  Our favourite comes from Katiel who writes:

  "I've been an accident prone ass most of my
  life, and have ended up in the emergency room
  more than a few times. My father's favourite
  joke (no matter what has happened to me) is
  to ask, 'Doctor, will she be able to play
  the piano?' When the doctor affirms that yes,
  I'll still be able to play, he always responds
  with the same 'funny, she couldn't before...'"

  Read them all. Some of this stuff will make
  you wince.

: B3TA IMAGE CHALLENGE
  Results from the Gangsta Challenge

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

  Last week we wanted you to gansterise things:
http://b3ta.com/challenge/gangster/

  We asked B3ta boarder 'damocles' to judge the
  entries - here are his 3 faves.

  Damocles writes -


  #1 "Mo'fo'care - Top shoppery with a top pun
     to boot. And the way things are going, it's
     only a matter of time before we see it on
     the street. (Squid Ink)
http://b3ta.com/board/2446901

  #2 "The rocks that one's got - Cell Block H
     or The Queen? Memories of adolescent young
     males watching religiously in the hope of
     lezzer action have clouded my vision.
     (Zak McFlimby)
http://b3ta.com/board/2447180

  #3 "Blingblingtrix - xcellent shoppery and how
     the  Matrix should have been." (Kiwi Damo)
http://www.b3ta.com/board/2456066


  "The obligatory Special Mention goes to Jola
  for an old joke remade with imagination."
