This will probably win George Michael a lifetime achievement award …

… or something like that. Via This Is London:

A mature, modest and (almost) scandal-free George Michael took the stage in his first solo concert in 15 years. But the pop star couldn’t resist making another controversial dig at George Bush.

During the number, an enormous balloon depicting a cartoon-ish George Bush rose out of centre stage, drawing whoops and yells from the crowd. But the real surprise came when Michael leaned down to unzip the balloon’s trousers, and out popped a British bulldog draped with the UK flag. The dog was stuck to the balloon’s inflated crotch, wagging its tail.

Here’s a photo of Michael’s onstage antics:

If you’re looking for realism onstage, I think you’ve got the wrong George, George.
