BUZZ : An anthropology professor found a fossil and thought, it's old, it's got big lips...Mick Jagger! Wake Forest associate professor Ellen Miller named a swamp-dwelling creature that lived 19 million years ago in Africa after Jagger. Its official name is Jaggermeryx naida, which means "Jagger's water nymph." The creature is described as the size of a deer and it looked like a cross between a long-legged pig and a slender hippo. Miller says she considered naming the fossil after Angelina Jolie, but naming it for Jagger was a no-brainer. Miller is co-author of a paper that appears in the September issue of the Journal of Paleontology.
SARAH PALIN and her family reportedly got into a huge, drunken brawl at a party last Saturday in Anchorage. It started whenTrack Palin got into it with a guy he doesn't like. Pretty soon, Sarah was screaming "Do you know who I am?!", Bristol was punching a guy in the face repeatedly, and Todd Palin got a bloody nose. Someone in the crowd reportedly yelled back, quote, "This isn't some damned Hillbilly reality show!" It should go without saying that the Palins were kicked out of the party.
