A tale I heard

Actor Hugh Laurie on once accepting the role of a 'spokesmodel' for L'Oreal's male skincare range:

"I made a commercial and I was photographed, I did a poster once. If you're going to ask me questions about skincare, there's not much I can tell you. Don't rub a cheese grater up and down your cheeks. That would be my advice. Don't dunk your face in engine oil or other caustic substances. I don't know anything about it. They sort of ask you to do this thing and you go: 'You're out of your fucking mind, not in a billion years would I consider such a thing.' Then, as they tell you it's a great deal of money, the thought crosses your mind: 'With that money I could build a school in Senegal.' And then you can't say no. Because if you do say no, what you're saying is that your public pose is more important than people getting a school in Senegal or polio vaccinations in Uganda or whatever. You can't do that. You just can't."

Judy took the wrong exit
off the motorway
and drove off
the end of the Earth.
