The Herald Sun reports,

[A] Sydney woman who in September wed al-Qaeda operative and alleged terrorist Willie Brigitte after converting to Islam had been part of a Jewish gay group just 18 months earlier.

Melanie Brown was photographed on the edge of a float in the 2002 Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, wearing long lace-up Doc Martens.

The float called “Twice Blessed” was built by Dayenu, a support group for Sydney’s Jewish gays and lesbians.

Is it just me, or does this vaguely remind anyone else of the old Python sketch about the working-class playwright?

“Good! good? What do you know about it? What do you know about getting up at five o’clock in t’morning to fly to Paris… back at the Old Vic for drinks at twelve, sweating the day through press interviews, television interviews and getting back here at ten to wrestle with the problem of a homosexual nymphomaniac drug-addict involved in the ritual murder of a well known Scottish footballer. That’s a full working day, lad, and don’t you forget it!”

Can I get an “oy, gevalt?”
