YOU OLYMPIC SPORTSTERS know about rock, paper and scissors.

Scissors beat paper every time, right?

Well, now's your chance to watch what a scalpel does to blubber.

According to its promo, Late Night Live tonight will see Phillip 'Saddam was just a careless driver' Adams confront his critic, Christopher Hitchens.

We can predict the Gastropod's spin from this try-out in the Australian: issue-avoidance combined with the usual ad hominem attacks.

Adams will be in the chair, I suppose, but I doubt that will save him.

Ten tonight. Don't forget the peanuts.
