Rock n Roll injuries – Keith Richards does it this time

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/4957948.stm

Doherty eat your heart out – these old geezers still know how to do it:

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has been taken to hospital in New Zealand after injuring himself while on holiday in Fiji.
A band spokeswoman said Richards had suffered a "mild concussion" and was taken to hospital as a precaution. Media reports in Australia and New Zealand said Richards had hurt his head when he fell out of a palm tree.

But what was he doing up the tree?

And does this really measure up to the most shocking musical injury of all time – Bowie gets hit in the eye by a lollipop:

Degrees in comedy – is anything out of bounds?

Writing about web page http://education.guardian.co.uk/chooseadegree/story/0,,1763903,00.html

The BA in Stand Up Comedy launched by Southampton Solent University. Previously we have had Surfing, Greenkeeping, Brewing.

These things usually prompt horror–filled responses about micky mouse degrees etc etc. I really don't have much of a problem with them in principle BUT would not choose myself.

These new degree subjects are often attacked by those who hate anything vocational or anything vaguely connected with media studies. But is there anything which is out of bounds? Ara degrees in quiz show hosting or reality TV participation or political lobbying beyond the pale? Or is it just a matter of time?
