Johnny Hallyday awarded Nobel Prize for raising the average IQ of two countries

Johnny Hallyday, tired of being French, has decided to trade up to an exciting new nationality. Belgian. I don't think he's really put much thought into this. I give you the phrase "sexy Belgian rocker" just as an example.

His decision abruptly doubles the number of vaguely famous Belgians. And - added bonus - he's real, unlike Hercules Poirot, who sensibly left the miserable little rat-hole at the earliest opportunity and showed no inclination to return. Mind you, Hercules didn't like being called French either. I guess there's a natural pecking order even at that bargain basement level...

Jonny Hallyday yesterday. Apparently he'll have to lose the goatee to get Belgian citizenship, as it's a bit too racy for them.
