Punorama

14:44 UK time, Wednesday, 15 November 2006

roman.203.jpgIt's Punorama results time again.

This week it was Russian Roman Abramovich. He's reportedly a bit stressed so has taken over an entire wing of an exclusive health spa in Austria and hired its entire staff of 30 doctors, life coaches and therapists.

As usual, you were in fine voice.

Aromantherapy - or something very close - was a popular offering this week and was sent in by Mike Grimes, Liam, Robin, Helene Parry, Alan and Al Newell.

This is probably one for just the Brits but we still applaud So dear, So Spa from Julie B. Another goodie that might be lost in translation is Chelsea Tensioner from Brian Gunn and Stuart.

Running with the health theme is Gareth Jones in Anglesey with Private Wealth Care and Danny Burke with In sickness and in wealth . With a nod towards the money side of things is Charles in the US, who suggests No expense spa-ed.

A much-loved US sitcom provides the inspiration for Will Parkhouse with The rest wing and Simon Rooke with The stessed wing.

A gold star to Chris in Witney for Bloc booking, but the first prize this week goes to Niall Nugent for his topical James-Bond inspired entry From Russia with scrubs. Bravo. Top of the class.
