Brogue rogue in vogue...

Iraqi journalist and amateur topiarist Muntazer Al Zaidi, who on Sunday attempted to trim George W. Bush down to size with a flying size-ten shoe, has become the toast of the Arab world (or should that be the pitta?) Although he could face up to 15 years imprisonment for the act, much support has been flooding in, including an extraordinary offer - Egyptian Saad Gumaa has offered the hand of his 20-year-old daughter, Amal, currently studying at university. It is as yet unclear as to whether this is a genuine proposal of marriage, or if she is simply a convicted shoplifter looking for an easy 'hand-out'!

The Beast With Five Fingers (1946) -

Deceased pianist
Lends hand to secretary
As severance pay.
