Pee Wee on speed, B-52's Fred Schneider isn't rich and Australia's fave cookie



Pee wee on bike ... Pee Wee Herman gets a speeding ticket? I didn't know you could do 50 mph on a Schwinn DX.

... Jim Belushi is returning to series TV. We'd be thrilled if he returned to making movies again. (Love ya in Real Men and About Last Night, big guy!)

... Howard Jones turned 55 on Tuesday. Hope he didn't try living life in one day.

... B-52's Fred Schneider tells Howard Stern: "I'm not broke, but I can't retire." Help him out and buy some songs off iTunes. Anything but Love Shack.

... I know this much is true: Spandau Ballet seems be touring the known universe, except the United States. 

TODAY'S READER MAILBLAST is from ... Mooselet in Australia, who wonders if Sean Daly or I have ever tried Tim Tams. "You don't know what you're missing.  I am convinced they are the Australian apology for bringing Vegemite into the world.  A Tim Tam is composed of two layers of chocolate malted biscuit, separated by a light chocolate cream filling, and coated in a thin layer of textured chocolate. Some varieties have other fillings, such as caramel, hazelnut or creme brule. You can get them in the US now in some Target stores. I would be more than happy to send you and Sean some Tim Tams, or even Vegemite if you've never had the, er, pleasure."
