OT: OJ Murder Plot
hecklerspray reports: Imagine for a second that you're a celebrity who'd stood trial for the murder of your ex-wife and her friend. Now, instead of quietly trying to get on with your life, what's the single most guff-headed thing you could possibly do?

Chances are you're currently thinking "Well hecklerspray, I'd imagine the single most guff-headed thing to do in the wake of my murder trial would be to write a book about how the murders would have been different if I'd have carried them out." And you'd be correct, only OJ Simpson has beaten you to it - the massively ill-advised book If I Did It, where OJ Simpson precisely details exactly how he'd have murdered his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman it if was him that got to do it, will be published in a couple of weeks. And, just for the Americans that can't read, OJ Simpson is going to go over the bones of the book in a televised interview with Fox later on this month.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
