Bachelors suit up over transsexual shock

They kissed, but weren’t told. A sextet of eligible UK bachelors, who vied for the heart of a gorgeous woman on a new reality TV show are investigating their legal options after being horrified to learn the object of their affection was in fact a transsexual.

Produced by Sky TV, “Find Me a Man”, challenged six hungry men to woo a saucy Latina femme fatale called Miriam. The station did not reveal that Miriam was not all she appeared to be until the end of filming, at which time the contestants sprang a nasty surprise of their own: a letter from their lawyers.

With allegations including conspiracy to commit sexual assault, defamation, personal injury and breach of contract looming, it is unlikely that footage of the courtships, which went as far as kissing and heavy petting, will be screened.

What a croc

He may hunt crocodiles for a living, but that’s no reason for internationally renowned odd-ball Steve Irwin to be denied protected species status.

The khakied one recently took great offence to attempts by fellow wildman Mick Pitman to establish an empire on the crocodile’s scales. After discovering that Pitman, who claims to have fearlessly slaughtered Northern Australia’s most ferocious fauna for decades, had the hide to promote himself as a ‘crocodile hunter’, Irwin moved to defend his multi-million dollar moniker.

Pitman received a testy letter from Irwin’s management reminding him of the fact the title was shielded by trade mark. Having initiated plans for a reptilian inspired rap CD and website, Pitman bared his teeth in retaliation.

“Now I may be a simple bloke from the bush with a swag on me back, but I am not slow,” he told the Herald Sun. “This bloke [Irwin] films [crocodiles], which is fair enough, but that to me is a photographer, not a hunter.”
