In a world that values scruffy, foulmouthed, talentless celebrities, it was refreshing to hear the news that Rod Stewart had been given a knighthood.
Good on you, your Majesty!
Good on you, Tony baby!
How kind of you to give Rod the Mod a bloody title to stop his incessant whingeing !
It can't be easy having all that sex and eating a kilo of gravel a day to keep body and voice together.
Especially when you're an old man.
So arise, 'Sir Rod' !
Yes! it does have a ring to it.
But then again, so do a lot of other bums.
