The much-awaited debut album by Jane's Addiction, "Nothing's Shocking" (Warner's) has disproved the claim in the title. Seven major retailers - Musicland, Target, Camelot, Hastings, Lieberman, Handleman and Sound Warehouse - have refused to carry the disc due to its cover, which features nude female Siamese twins with their hair on fire. Earlier this year, Prince's "Lovesexy" album was kept from some stores because of its nude photo of the singer.

If you look real close at the beauty mark on Justine Boettger's chin, you can tell her apart from her twin sister Corinne. A little makeup and you're in double trouble. The Boettgers, three-sport stars and high-quality students at Girls High, routinely confuse friends, teachers and even relatives. And that's before they try to. "We have an uncle who can't tell us apart," Corinne said. "Even when we say who we really are, he doesn't believe us. He thinks we're kidding.

Marlon Starling and Lloyd Honeyghan hold each other in the kind of disdain that, in the real world, usually leads to a fistfight. Good thing they are boxers, so they can get paid for doing something they say they would do for free. In a fight card billed "Double Trouble," Starling will meet Tomas Molinares and Honeyghan will face Youngkil Chung tonight at Convention Hall. If they both win, the stage will be set for a welterweight title unification bout between the two boxers.

Originality apparently hasn't been keeping pace with development in rapidly growing Voorhees Township, at least not in terms of street names. And in at least one case, that has created a problem for emergency crews searching for residents who have called for help. About 10 streets in different parts of the township apparently have identical names, said Robert Earl, a member of the Voorhees Township Committee, who spoke during a committee meeting Monday. Earl said that the township's fire companies and first-aid squad had asked that the committee consider the problem.

Don't be surprised if you see a few 76ers rubbing their eyes tonight when the take the court against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City. They might have a hard time believing what they see. The last time the Sixers visited the Salt Palace, only one Malone was playing for the Jazz. Guy by the name of Karl. Scored 34 points to lead Utah to a 115-102 win last February. Now there's another Malone. Jeff. But he's no stranger. The Sixers know him from the damage he did to them while with the Washington Bullets.

The Midwest was not kind to the Bulldogs, who opened their Roller Hockey International season with two losses to the St. Louis Vipers over the weekend. The Vipers topped Philadelphia, 11-8, last night. On Saturday, the Bulldogs dropped a 9-7 decision. Last night, the Bulldogs jumped out to a 2-0 lead and led, 3-2, after the first quarter. St. Louis then scored four unanswered goals to take the lead. The Bulldogs were held scoreless in the third quarter as the Vipers pulled away.

Guess who witnessed the 2 a.m. mugging of a Center City man? A robber, that's who. And did the robber help the victim? No way, said the prosecutor. "The robber pulled out a gun and held up the man," Assistant District Patrick Connell said yesterday. "Only in Philadelphia," quipped Connell, after Common Pleas Judge Frederica Massiah-Jackson convicted Anthony Jennings, 24, of Hoffman Place near Brown, of robbery and sentenced him to one to five years in prison.

Mainland High pitcher Jen Devlin took the mound for both games her team played in the Hammonton Tournament on Saturday. Several hours - and 12 innings - later, Devlin left the mound without having given up a base hit. In the Mustangs' first-round game against Woodstown, Devlin faced only 22 batters and struck out 14 in throwing a 6-0 no-hitter. An error by Devlin with two out in the bottom of the seventh prevented her from registering a perfect game. In a 15-2 quarterfinal win against Rancocas Valley, the hard-throwing senior righthander pitched five innings of hitless ball before giving way to Karen Brown after Devlin's shoulder tightened up. The two victories gave Devlin - The Inquirer's Player of the Year last spring when she went 21-2-1 - an 8-0 record for the season.

The NHL may think two referees are better than one, but the Flyers are not persuaded. In the Stanley Cup playoffs, with two referees and two linesmen working each game, the Flyers have been nailed twice for double penalties - both times resulting in five-on-three disadvantages. This didn't happen in the 20 Flyers games called by two referees as an experiment during the regular season. Against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, the Flyers have survived both two-man disadvantages, keeping intact their record of not having been scored on in such situations this season.

Q: MY BOYFRIEND and I have been together nearly a year and a half. We haven't had any problems until now. He has a 3-year-old daughter and two weeks ago she and her mother (his ex) moved in with him. He told me that they don't have anywhere else to live. He told me that nothing's going to change with us, but I know it is. I never saw her as a threat to me until she moved into his house. Now, I'm scared that I'm going to lose him to her. My heart is telling me to stay and work it out, but my mind is telling me to leave and move on. Should I leave or should I stay?

WHILE WALKING through the hallways at Communications Tech these days, Tony and Terrell Parker are no longer exclusively greeted with "Twin. " Often, they're asked to open their mouths. All teeth accounted for, that's Terrell. An upper biggy missing, you're talkin' Tony. Other than that, you're on your own. Meanwhile, thank goodness basketball players wear numbers and that they can't play the exact same position. Though each identical twin goes 6-2, 175 pounds, Tony (No. 11)

DEAR ABBY : I am 26 and have been dating "Mike" for four years. We met in our senior year of college and recently became engaged. I'm looking forward to being married and starting a family, but I'm in love with Mike's identical twin brother, "Matt. " I didn't know he existed until a year ago because they had a falling out at their high school graduation and didn't reconcile until recently. When I met Matt, I knew right away he was the one for me, but I continued dating Mike.

DALLAS - Penn State was so concerned with how it would handle Houston's fast-paced offense that it utilized two scout teams in practice to try to emulate the tempo. "We have more or less the same offensive line every single play and then two sets of wide receiver groups with the quarterback and another group with another quarterback," strong safety Drew Astorino said Sunday. "As soon as one offense is done, the other offense runs right on and runs a play instead of having to go back and look" at the card listing plays.

There are just two Dreddons on the football field for Overbrook. It just seems like more. Devon Dreddon, the younger and larger of the twins, plays running back and linebacker. He snaps for punts, kicks off, and returns kicks. He wears No. 14. Deandre Dreddon, who is older than his brother by two minutes, plays wide receiver and safety. He sees some action at quarterback and is the team's top kick returner. He wears No. 4. There is no other brother wearing No. 24 or 44. But the twins are so active, and so involved in nearly every aspect of the game for the Rams, it sometimes seems as if there's another out there.

DOMINIC COOPER goes positively Pacino in "The Devil's Double," a film biography of a real-life Iraqi "Scarface" and the poor sap ordered to be his stand-in. Cooper brilliantly portrays both Uday Hussein, the singularly sadistic son of Saddam, and the fatalistic, fearful Latif Yahia, a former schoolmate of Uday's yanked out of the army and told to impersonate the dictator's son so that anybody who wanted to kill him - and potential assassins were legion - would take a shot or swipe at Latif and not the real Uday.

Surprise, surprise: Mother Nature gave us more than we bargained for. Commuters who were told Tuesday to plan on having an afternoon headache yesterday actually woke up with an unexpectedly slushy migraine. "It took an hour-and-a-half for me to get from Northeast Philly to Center City," said Tim Chandler, a building maintenance worker who was stunned at how bad the roads were near his house. Forecasters initially predicted minimal snowfall for yesterday morning, with no accumulation expected until at least the late afternoon.
