Contest #448: Trump Tower in New York is quickly becoming a halfway house for tarnished super celebs trying to salvage their lives and rehabilitate their public images. Michael Jackson recently took up residence in the sable skyscraper while recording a new album. Now Princess Di is looking to escape the fishbowl of England for the aquarium that is New York, and is scoping out a pad in the tower. T.N.T.ers: come up with the next celebrity to move into Trump Tower and briefly describe interior decor and what kind of housewarming party they'd throw.

And now for the results of Contest #444: we asked you for the next animalistic intoxicant and you got us udderly light-headed with:

First Prize: Zoey the Zebra for Zima Frooty Tooties, a new line of Zimas in fun colors with a twist of apple, orange, lemon or grape. A talking zebra with multicolored stripes in a setting akin to "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" vies for the hearts of children of all ages with the slogan, "Just like Sprite, but with a kick. Zima. For the kid in you." Commercials air during the afterschool special, and on Nick at Night. Hey, if Camel can do it... Michelle Richmond, copywriter, Lavidge & Associates, Knoxville, Tenn.

Second Prize: Cow Brau: No udder beer tastes like it. Jim Sabo, commercial producer, Brose Productions, Tarrytown, N.Y.

Third Prize: Budweiser's Blue Footed Boobie Bird beer. "Because when you say `Blue Footed Boobie Bird'...you've had enough!" Mark Seigle, marketing exec, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Los Angeles.

Honorable mentions:

Hair of the Dog Breakfast Beer: The "Cur" for whatever "Ales" ya. Phil Frankenfeld, writer, Milwaukee.

Snail Ale: One slug and you'll be crawling home. Rick Weber, president, Weber Communications, Maitland, Fla.
