'More money than God' quite enough, Elton turns down multi-million $ payday

by Jeremy Hooper

   Elton John and David Furnish have reportedly turned down the $10 million dollars being offered by an undisclosed American TV company for the exclusive right to air the couple's Dec. 21 civil partnership. The duo cite a desire for privacy as reason for rejecting the large sum.

To which we say to the aforementioned undisclosed TV producer: Give us half of that and we'll gladly don our gayest, glitter-coated apparel and say "I do" to the tune of "Crocodile Rock" faster than you can say "Someone Saved My Life Tonight." Of course you'll first have to deal with that whole "legalizing it in America" thing, but those are just details. You're a TV person -- you make dreams and mindless drivel happen. We'll start re-writing "Candle in the Wind" to fit our happy occasion; you offer Bush a spot on the next "Apprentice" if he lets the 'mosexuals get hitched.

Now, let's see hear...

Goodbye, single life
Though I barely knew you at all...
