A la O'Reilly, a shower of gifts

Still searching for that perfect gift for your closest phone pal? How about the "O'Reilly Approved" Loofah, courtesy of thesmokinggun.com website?

Yesterday, the Court TV-owned document clearing house messengered scores of the abrasive bath cloths to grateful recipients all over Manhattan. The items came in plastic bags sporting a label featuring Fox News star Bill O'Reilly's smirking face and the slogan "Perfect for your Caribbean shower fantasies!" along with the disclaimer, "Red wine and falafel not included."

The Loofah Man's reaction to Bastone's little joke?

It remained a mystery yesterday.

A Fox News spokeswoman told me: "I'm not going to dignify this with a comment."

Can you help us out?
