This evening's news...

"Rolf Harris to paint Queen's portrait.

The Queen is to have her portrait painted by Australian entertainer Rolf Harris as part of her 80th birthday celebrations.

Her formal sitting with Harris will be filmed by the BBC.

The Queen will celebrate her 80th birthday next April.

Harris, whose hit songs Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport and Two Little Boys made him a household name in the 1960s, said the painting would be "impressionistic"."

This is a wind-up, right? Can you imagine this?

She is lucky Pro Hart isn't doing it.

(The Ozmates will understand)

I will not have a bad word said against His Rolf-ness.

I have always loved his "Two Little Boys". The man's a genius and an inspiration.

I have always loved his "Two Little Boys".

I believe it's Michael Jackson's favorite as well............

Given some of the portraits of QE2 we've seen slapped onto canvas in the past few years, I'm inclined to believe he might do a pretty good job.

If she rewards him, will he become HRHRH?

Jerricho - I thank you. I'll just feed you the lines and you...

I suspect it will be done with a tin of house paint on one of the palace walls.

Trust Rolph? Sure can! ;)

Will Rolf paint while his "kangaroo is tied down sport?"

One hopes it will be a little better than this ;)

I remember Rolf wiggling his big toe as an incentive to get us to learn to swim. Cripes, Queenie is 80 next year???
