Well it's not every day I take on a supermodel, but it seems like I am at loggerheads with 'the body' in today's newspapers.
I have nothing at all against international supermodels usually, so it makes a change for me to be scrapping with them rather than the usual suspects.
But a journalist gave me a call yesterday and asked me what I thought about Elle Macpherson's Labradoodle getting paid £10k for a modeling contract.
At first I thought good luck to her, and then I had another think.
Things are already pretty silly with regard to people cashing in on the Labradoodle craze, charging silly money and making outrageous hypoallergenic claims. This is a type of dog that really doesn't need any more hype! And those nutters that follow celebs and buy the same clothes, dye their hair the same shade etc - do we really want them getting a matching dog, too? And will some idiots imagine that all gorgeous dogs can earn money for their owners as models?
As the owner of dog that is 'the face of Budgeon's own brand dog food' I can confirm that it hasn't changed our lives in any tangible material sense!
So, that's probably why I was so grumpy about Elle's dog's £10k modeling deal.
