Today's MDN: Shibuya cops think they're cleaning up the neighborhood, but they're really just making the prostitots move around more. Come on! Anyone who reads GALS knows what Shibuya's really like!

Personally, I can't imagine a tasteful picture of Britney Spears period, let alone a nude picture, but then, we've seen enough Paris Hilton lately to put Britney in perspective.
