I put on the plastic surgeon's table torn photos from newspapers. So, I want Angelina Jolie's mouth, Scarlett Johansson's chin and skin, Zeta-Jones's ears, Elizabeth Taylor's green eyes and Julia Roberts's hair. As concerns the nose, I thought of the one owned by Meryl Streep. I know, it is crooked, but she won so many Oscar prizes with it. What do you say about my combination, doctor? Isn't it perfect? The surgeon leaves the room and tells the nurse: Take the axe. We make her a head transplant. She is in need of another brain too.
