Or perhaps we could get Mr. Clapton to play "***". He's supposed to

So if the lunch menu consists primarily of derivatives of plantations in

Ian Botham (didn't he go gallivanting all across England atop of an

Sachin Tendulkar (he's got to be smoking something if he can bat like
Shane Warne (now we know what those cans contained and what "baked"

L.Sivaramakrishnan (I remember an "authoritative" source who claimed all

Saqlain Mushtaq (he got mugged... yeah right!!!)
