PAMELA BEGETS A WHOLE NEW BENCHMARK

By CBR Staff Writer

BarbedWire’s tip for kooky site of the day must be www.geocities.com/collegepark/8979/pal.html, where one can find many ‘learned’ disquisitions on Pamela Andersen Lee, the pneumatic former star of BabeWatch, and the movie surely named in tribute of this very section, the unfortunately wildly unpopular 1996 sci-fi flick Barb Wire. However, it is far from prurient interest that makes us point out this site; it is the remarkable claim by its author that there is enough silicon in Pam’s augmented silhouette to provide the material for 23 Intel Pentium microprocessors. Which suggests a whole new TLA (three letter acronym) may be being born, a definition of silicon content, the PAL (Pamela Andersen Lee). One foresees many useful applications of the term, such as suggesting that one’s hot new box has the silicon equivalent of 2.3 PALs… or maybe we should kill this trend in its cradle? á
