Not only is it unusual it's freakin insane.

Tom Jones, singer of such ditties as "She's a Lady" and "Thunderball", has entered the knights of the English realm. Yes that Tom Jones. The one your parents listened to and it drove you nuts. You often mocked him in college. You cringed when he was trying to make a comeback in the mid 90s. You really just wanted him to go away. Now he is the recipient of England's highest civilian decoration. God save the Queen for she is truly insane. What's next? Sir Benny Hill? Oh he's dead. That's right.

"You can't be a sexy person unless you have something sexy to offer. With me, it's my voice: the way that I sing, the way I express myself when I sing." - Tom Jones

What's new, Pussycat? It's Sir Tom Jones now.

I'm still curious what we call Sir Elton John's new "wife/husband"?

Actually, I've always enjoyed "She's a Lady". No, seriously, I do. The rest of his "work" - ugh.

The Queen has really lowered the bar for knighthood, eh?

One of the greatest film climaxes is when Tom Jones helps save the world in "Mars Attacks" and all of the animals start dancing to "It's Not Unusual." How can you top that?

Tom Jones is so hot.

Citysoul - I hope you're being sarcastic. If not I'll have to contemplate a new career in being a cheesy singer who shows his chest hair at every opportunity.
