Brian May? I can one up that...

"In this age of celebrity culture, it is rare to find someone who has fame, fortune and universal acclaim and yet who remains true to his core values of learning and enlightenment," he added.

"Dr. Victoria Nika Zdrok (born March 3, 1973 in Kiev, Soviet Union) is a Playboy Playmate, Penthouse Pet of the Year, a star of elaborate adult videos, an attorney, a clinical psychologist, sex therapist and former goodwill ambassador.

Zdrok graduated from Pensacola Junior College in Florida at age 17 and West Chester University in Pennsylvania at age 18 with a B.A., Summa Cum Laude. She entered graduate school where she studied for a joint law and psychology program at Villanova University and Hahnemann Medical School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

She received her J.D. degree at the Law School and a subsequent M.A. and Ph.D. in clinical psychology. Her dissertation on "The Effect of Judicial Instructions on Jury Perception of Defendants' Refusal to Testify" was recommended for the Law Psychology Awards."

She's blonde, too. Oooh-err...

An improvement

At least Brian May does something worthwhile for the millions he's paid, Cherie is a waste of skin.

Cherie is one of, if not the, leading human rights lawyer in the UK. She is also married to one of, if not the, (former) leading human rights abuser in the UK, I guess it cancells out, though. Between them, they are worth nothing.

"Cherie is one of, if not the, leading human rights lawyer in the UK."

I prefer "waste of skin". It's shorter, snappier and conveys exactly the same meaning.

O'Really - life as university Chancellor

It just so happened that one Ms Blissett not so long ago attended her graduation from LJM. Rather than compliment Ms Blissett on her fine achievement, Mme Blair had this to say: "Oooooooo that's a lovely top you're wearing".

Clearly a strategy honed to preempt attempts by the newly unemployed, resulting from her husband's education policies, to use the occasion to enquire of Mme Blair whether she had any unfilled vacancies in her entourage.

Dr. May can look forward to his graduation days being spoiled by lots of brats asking for autographs, tips on getting that Brain May guitar sound, the best direct injection devices, what really happened with the fat-bottomed girls stunt, whether the Queen is as short in real life as BBC video footage of her suggests, for jobs even, and perhaps the occasional question about the distribution of HI clouds in the vicinity of the Milky Way. No, not that Milky Way - that's why we send the brats to university.
