    "ex-Simply Red singer strips off in a busy high street.."

    BLOODY HELL! I thought you meant Mick Hucknall, thank god it wasn't.

    Saying that, I still clicked the link despite the risk of it actually being him, and there being photos. Hmm.


    Ha, that reminds me of defunct website TV Go Home - fake TV listings.

    They had a regular show called 'Mick Hucknall's Pink Pancakes' in which, each week, Mick would press his scrotal sack against a different pane of glass, with disturbing consequences.


    "BLOODY HELL! I thought you meant Mick Hucknall, thank god it wasn't."
