Joining in with the jolly promotion for Sacha Baron Cohne's latest iteration on one idea, Gordon and Carl Stroud enjoy a bit of sniggering:
OUTRAGEOUS comic SACHA BARON COHEN couldn’t sit down for THREE DAYS after a bid to bleach ALL his body hair went badly wrong.
In case you miss the subtle nudge-nudge, the Sun subs helpfully provide a crosshead:
But why was Cohen bleaching himself in the first place?
“He’d heard that all-over hairlessness is a popular trend in the gay community, so he thought he’d bleach all his hair so it looked invisible."
Really? Only in all the promotional material where Cohen does what I suppose it meant to be "standing like a gay", you can see his hairy arms and hairy belly. Perhaps he started with his arsehole and abandoned the whole bleaching thing after it went wrong? Or maybe it's all a way to work in the phrase "couldn't sit down for days"?
Gordon does have some news which will cheer up people holding tickets to see Michael Jackson - David Copperfield's been dropped from the bill after he asked for a ridiculous sum of money to appear. Paul Daniels, I understand, is still available.
