Look, if it worked for "The Sun - we love it" then this distinguished blog is prepared to give it a go! After all, under the leadership of my old, ex-best friend, 'Rupe', The Sun regularly featured attractive ladies on page 3 and their circulation, along with mine, shot up to astronomical heights, er, not, of course, that I ever looked at them, you understand, at least, not regularly, but sometimes one would come across a discarded copy and, only out of curiosity, one would have a quick peek!
So all this is by way of introducing a new feature to this blog - our very own 'Page 3' gal!
Here she is, Miss Bo Gilbert, who was born 100 years ago in 1916:
Never mind the age, just check the quality! She is an exceedingly attractive and elegant lady and Vogue magazine which is also celebrating its 100th birthday deserves great praise for featuring her on their ads.
However, to ensure that this blog will not fall foul of any sexism accusations, next month our 'Page 3' will feature our proprietor - er, that's me! - celebrating his 77th birthday. He, sorry I mean me, will be wearing the new, daring, Olympic swimwear kit designed by Ms. Stella McCartney and modelled, rather inadequately, I feel, by Mr. Tom Daley who, I understand, falls off platforms into swimming pools for a living - yeeeees, quite!
In order to maintain the proper decencies for which this blog is famed, I will, of course, be wearing those rather skimpy 'swimmies' over my long-johns. Yes, I know, you can hardly wait but, ladies, beware, such a sight might give rise to dangerous palpitations - you have been warned!
