That’s Dr Dhoni to you

Just like Ian Botham, MS Dhoni is now a doctor of letters. De Montford University gave him the honour, which led to this quite marvellous photograph:

Good choice of complementary colours

You didn’t have a suit, MS? No? Nothing? No smart trousers or anything? Okay, no, it’s fine. No problem at all. It’s just, you know, most people dress up a bit, but it’s fine, it’s fine. Really, we’re not bothered.

Dr Dhoni isn’t our favourite Indian doctor. He’ll have had a very good career indeed if he brings us even half the joy we felt when we saw the sign for ‘Dr Dikshit’.

7 Appeals

  1. MS looks wayyyy more stylin’ than your fella from De Montford. That suit is totally horrendous.

    Also – world’s smallest degree or half eaten banana?

  2. Beware KC. Some Kiwi DJ laughed at an Indian Minister for being called Dikshit and found himself cast as an Antipodean Jade Goody.

  3. This is an incredible picture.

  4. I don’t get it.

  5. That “thing” on their heads will make anyone look stupid, In a suit or nude.

  6. I haven’t been to one of those new-fangled universities like Durham and Imperial, but I’m reasonably sure that this picture hasn’t been taken at a university. Surely a university would have more lecture rooms, halls, refectories and opium dens.

    This leads me to believe that a crack squad from DMU just jumped into a minibus when they heard that the Indian team was training locally, grabbed a degree and a vice chancellor from the cupboard, nicked some costumes from the Drama Socs production of Two Gentlemen of Verona, and set off to endoctorate MS before those bastards from the University of Leicester could get to him.

    You have to be quick with your honorary degrees these days, otherwise there’ll only be footballers left to give them to.

  7. It’s name is De Montfort University, not De Montford.

    I really think this is an important fact.

    It is named after Simon De Montfort, the 6th Earl of Leicester. Another important fact.

    Despite claims that he initiated proto-democracy in England, other aspects of his cv infer that Simon De Montfort, the 6th Earl of Leicester was probably a piece of shit:

    And talking of shit, Leicestershire are currently having the living same kicked out of them by Middlesex:

    Can you get a witness? Yes you can!
