    Makes you wonder why he got the knighthood at all. Lately the honours system seems to be getting a bit desperate to look 'relevant'. Maybe they think this will go down well with the geeks!

    I will be getting knighted next week. I once contributed a nickle to my class milk money fund back in the third grade. :rolleyes:
