And over here, Melvyn Bragg as Aquaman A remote Brazilian town is building a bronze statue depicting Prince Charles as a winged hero saving the world. Says the BBC, in a report with pictures:
The Prince was presented with a model of the sculpture, which shows him with bulging muscles, pinned back ears and only a loin cloth to protect his modesty. […]

Apart from the angel-like wings and muscular physique he also gave Prince Charles a full head of hair. At his feet are human bodies, one of whom is drinking a bottle of wine.

Accepting the scale model of Mr Bentes’ work the Prince said he was “amazed” and “deeply touched”.

One imagines that the “amazed” part is true, at any rate. (Via Off the Kuff.) [06:25 PM]

No argument there... I have always thought Prince Charles was 'touched'.aaAs for the ghasty Melvyn Bragg, less said the better.
