Holy Blood, Holy Grail, Holy Farce

No word on whether Ron Howard will be attending to speak on The DaVinci Code, but the Scotsman is reporting:

PUNK rocker Rat Scabies is to join renowned international authors to discuss his pilgrimage to France in search of the Holy Grail.

The former drummer with The Damned is to address the latest symposium of the Sauniere Society, set up to help shed some light on one of the world's greatest mysteries. He was invited to speak in Musselburgh after teaming up with ex-music journalist Christopher Dawes to write Rat Scabies and the Holy Grail, published earlier this year.

Perhaps it's just me, but I think your symposium may lose a bit of its seriousness if you introduce as one of your speakers a Mr. Rat Scabies. Not that it isn't a great name for a punk rocker.
