    Arr&bee, Moe said to say she is already well in shape, thank you, and if she needs any parting of the waves, she has a hairdresser. So, you can choose between Moses, and what Moe says...

  30. #180
    Unless an invitation is received to attend the Royal Variety Performance in London (following Moe's audience with HM the Queen, it would not be unexpected), then Moe's next prestigious date will be at the Annual Academy Awards ceremony at the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood. Although she has received several nominations, you may consider that to be a good opportunity to discuss with her your offer of a comeback role.

    Make sure you have some good security people with you.....

    A bullet and bomb proof limousine has been placed on order, in the event that my client, Ms Moe Superstar, should ever be surprised by anyone associated with Mr Arr&bee Wannabe.

    In the meantime, perhaps I could be enlightened as to the difference between 'The Golden Turkey Awards', and 'The Golden Raspberry Awards'?

  36. #186
    I've just seen on the news that the US embassy has reopened in Cuba after a fifty year hiatus. Was the date chosen to tie in with Fidel Castro's birthday?

  37. #187
    Who knows....and Fidel Castro is now in his 90th year. More likely, simply the diplomatic initiative begun by President Obama (August 4th birthday) last year coming to fruition.

    Trivial thought : perhaps cuban heels will come back into fashion? It's been a long time since I was that well-heeled....
