What are your ambitions for 2011?Dorney: "To be exposed by Wikileaks."Balidiscovery.com:
Why's that? Have you sent any revealing messages recently?Dorney: "Well, there was the one which said I had evidence that Dame Edna was indeed Harry Potter's real mother…for starters."Balidiscovery.com:
I heard you just were named a 'Monk for a Day' in Thailand - what was that all about?Dorney: " I won a competition run by the Renaissance Hotel in Phuket in which entrants were asked to suggest an '11th Wish' to go with the ten wishes they offer guests each day. I suggested being a 'Monk for a Day and won. So I've just been there with a photographer. The film should be out soon."Balidiscovery.com:

Any interesting parts you'd care to share with us?Dorney: Well, as we walked down the road with a monk collecting breakfast in our begging bowls I thought I saw Angelina Jolie negotiating for half a dozen orphans at a nearby monastery.
