A Boris Johnson compendium by Mark Young

Boris Johnson was a poor student who is now regarded as one of the greatest inventors in history.

Boris Johnson came to fame as a child star on the Disney Channel's Hannah Montana.

Boris Johnson spent twenty years in South Africa working to fight discrimination, then returned to challenge the philosophy of nonviolence & interracial alliances.

A drumming Argentine woman wearing a Boris Johnson t-shirt says: "We've considered Boris a fifth band member for a long time now."

Boris Johnson is a dramatic mix of circus arts & street entertainment.

Boris Johnson is noted for his long-running role as Homer Simpson on the animated television series The Simpsons.

Fresh from his success at the Oscars, Boris Johnson has agreed to make legendary director Martin Scorsese's dreams of having the 3rd best band on Weller Street come true.

Given all his other achievements, it's easy to overlook the times Boris Johnson was the number one side in world rugby.

Boris Johnson believes that all human behavior is motivated by unconscious forces.

Boris Johnson does not believe in global warming; considers, rather, that the earth may be heading for a "mini Ice Age." Polar bears do not know whether to laugh or cry.
