"...just acknowledge how much more resonant the whole water-into-wine thing would have been if Jesus had been able to do cool bar tricks like Tom's character in Cocktail. Or, perhaps, like Tom's commanding officer in Top Gun, you believe Jesus's ego was writing cheques his body couldn't cash, and that the whole Messiah myth will be reinvigorated by an entertainment personality with a better understanding of the need for an "up" ending"

I'm back in my lollerskates.

Well, I don't know if the egregious Mr Cruise is divine, but I've often been heard to mutter "Jesus Christ" when one of his dreadful films are mentioned in the media.

What about the review of "I, a Camera" which comprised just three word. "Me no Leica!".

I once had occasion to ring the Britten-Pears Library in Aldburgh and they weren't amused by my hilarious take on the "Britney Spears Library". Or they concealed it well.

I thought the headline to some story about the Royals having to tighten their belts, "They're Guarding the Change at Buckingham Palace," was pretty good.
