You know, at this point, Ozzy Osbourne’s loved internationally, by people of all ages. Why not bestow knighthood on the man?
He’s a great representative for England. If you forget about his past of extreme drug ingestion and animal abuse.
That should do the trick!
Helen Maidiotis, from Sydney, is behind the push and writes on the campaign’s Facebook page: “Ozzy has been an inspiration to many great musicians over the last 40 years. He is a credit to his country and I believe that a knighthood for Ozzy is one well deserved and long overdue.”
Little more than 100 people have signed the petition at the time of this writing. The petition seeks 1,000 signatures and should do it within the next 300 days — the petition’s target deadline.
Knighthood’s awarded on merit, for exceptional achievement or service. I’d say Ozzy’s achievements are exceptional. Super human, even. The man’s a heavy metal icon who took more illicit substances than Sigmund Freud, and that dude was a major fiend.
Obviously, such an honor’s up to the Queen mum.
I think she should go for it. Knight Mr. Ozzy Osbourne, Queen — make it so!
