That's just... perfect

I've read most of Clive James's literary criticism (though not yet any of his memoirs), and I try to read any new thing I spot by him on the web, but I had no idea that he had coined the funniest ever description of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

To wit: "a brown condom stuffed with walnuts."

That's the kind of thing that gets you into heaven no matter what else you did on this earth.

Christopher Hitchens reviews the latest volume of James's memoirs here.
