Fallen entertainer Boy George has been sentenced to public flogging for his recent alleged assault on a 28 year old man in his home. Judge Wilberforce Pinkston-Smyth today declared that following several arrests and a spate of community service, he felt that he had no choice but to resort to recommending a public flogging for the 45 year old singer.
As he announced the sentence gasps were heard around the hushed courtroom, plus a lot of delighted squeals, a couple of claps and a drag queen fainted.
The learned Judge followed up his shocking sentence by announcing that in light of public decency Boy George will have to be fully clothed for the flogging, in a sturdy material such as leather or PVC. He also cited that the flogging should cause no lasting damage and suggested a light whipping with a "tickler" might be appropriate.
Finally, following the recent media frenzy which Boy Georges' community service attracted, Judge Pinkston-Smyth decreed that crowd control should be employed, probably "a few hundred leather-clad biker-types with studded caps and scarves."
When asked for his verdict on the sentence a delighted Boy George commented, "Well, It's tamer than my normal weekends, but I needed a break anyway."
