Midnight Express, yep that's right the Oliver Stone film about a chap in a Turkish prison in which good times are most definitely not had, is being turned into a ballet.
I'm not joking.
That's the sort of thing that would have been a throwaway line on Brass Eye.
Can anyone think of any other hugely unlikely cultural events?
I'd like to see Leveson On Ice! which is famous for the hilarity and acrobatics of the custard pie scene.
