AND IF YOU BELIEVE THAT...: For reasons we can't quite fathom, John Lydon is making a programme for Channel Five about sharks. Anyway, since its due to air in about a week or so, we're now at the stage where they're trying to get us interested, hence a story about how Johnny Rotten scared off shark. Hardly. He didn't present a danger to the shark, so the shark swam away. Probably bored. The idea of anyone being "frightened" by Lydon in 2004 is hugely implausible. Even the 1970s editors of tabloid newspapers by now see him as little more than a funny, cuddly old shoutbox, like everyone's grandad but without the smell of pee.
