Christopher Lee Finally Knighted; Balance of Universe Restored

Note: If you've been living under a rock for the last 60 years (or are a first-year houseman doctor) and do not know who Sir Christopher Lee is, FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE DO NOT POST THIS IN THE COMMENTS OR SO HELP ME GOD I WILL TRACK YOU DOWN AND BITE YOUR HEAD OFF WITH MY BLUNT, GAP-TOOTHED, CAVITY-RIDDEN FRONT TEETH. You think those terrorists who capture reporters and saw their heads off on camera with blunt knives are scary? You ain't seen my front teeth. There's a reason why I alone out of 500 students was asked not to smile in my graduation photo. Now excuse me whilst I go take my Ritalin. --Editor

Image taken from the official website. He holds the Guinness World Record for most movie roles, so you've definitely seen or heard him before. If you haven't, FOR GOD'S SAKE DO NOT POST THIS IN THE COMMENTS. If you do, hire a bodyguard and tell him to watch specifically for crazed fanboys.

Veteran actor Christopher Lee, one of my favourite people in the world (see above Note), has been conferred a Knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours List, making him Sir Christopher Lee.

Lee, 87, has spent his career terrifying cinema-goers.

As well as appearing in classic horror films such as 1958's "Dracula" and 1959's "The Mummy", Sir Christopher also played memorable baddie Scaramanga in the 1974 James Bond classic "The Man With The Golden Gun".

In recent years he starred as Saruman in "The Lord Of The Rings" trilogy and Count Dooku in the "Star Wars" prequels.

All I have to say to this is:

LIKE, DUDES! FINALLY!

You know, I was the one who originally broke to the world the news that Christopher Lee was reprising his role as Count Dooku in the animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I posted the question on his official website and his son-in-law replied, making the official announcement that was picked up by news sites everywhere. Yep, that was me, folks. And my mom said I'd never make an impact in life. Hah! (Oh wait, my parents read this blog. Hi mom! You look lovely today! --Ed.)

which I keep in my room surrounded by flowers and love candles. Really.

Speaking of Christopher Lee, you know he's going to be in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, right? Mmmm... Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter. Feera's probably watching out for that one as well. It's got Johnny Depp. (as is always the case with Burton)

Bal: Uhm. Excuse me. Didn't I make it clear enough in my post that I am a [freaking stalker GET A RESTRAINING ORDER NOW --Ed.] normal well-adjusted fan when it comes to Chris Lee? I knew he was playing the Jabberwocky some time ago. Yes Tim Burton's stuff is THE DOPE man.

He is most excellent. I put him up there with Alec Guinness and Laurence Olivier (although Olivier did not do any of the Star Wars Movies, and Clash of the Titans is best forgotten).

Here I bought a cuddly panda bag (L) that I can hardly put it down!
I believe it is a GREAT find for every panda fanatic!

Dr Grumpy: You have good taste, sir! Though I certainly would not hold Olivier's absence from the Star Wars prequels against him - I believe the man would rather insert red hot coals where the sun don't shine before he got involved with those dungpiles.

And how come I wasn't addicted to your blog before this? (I am now. Can I have your home address? Pretty please?)

The Angry Medic said...

Bestiality Lovers Anonymous: Oh I know JUST where you can put your panda, dear. Did you see the previous post about free surgery for spammers? Come back to me and I'll even take your panda out for free!

Somewhere on the other side of the pond.

When I was in medical school I actually applied to do a 1 month neurology rotation over there at Queen's Square, but got turned down. I ended up doing it at Mayo, instead.

I don't hold it against them. The Queen's Square reflex hammer is still my exam tool of choice.

I thought it was my photo that was surrounded by your flowers and love candles. :(

That's it, I'm reinstating the restraining order.

The Angry Medic said...

Dr Grumpy: Hey I just found out that you be a neurologist. I'm doing Neurology now with neurologists who are as grumpy as you (hard to top, I know). All they seem to do is ship people off to Queen's Square...and IMHO you got the better deal :)

The Angry Medic said...

Kendra: LOL noooooooo! But I spent YEARS regaining your trust! Dammit, gonna have to sell those plane tickets and stalker camera set now.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Forgot one, only reminded yesterday when watching it with my kids.

He was Willy Wonka's father, the dentist, in the recent remake of the movie.

And yes, I agree I got the better deal. I saved a fortune on travel and lodging arrangements.
