This seems as good a time as any to quote those immortal words of Raymond Chandler:

"She was a blonde. A blonde to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained-glass window."
I've read that Elvis Presley described his G.I. Blues co-star, the leggy dancer Juliet Prowse, as having "a body that could make a bishop stamp his foot through a stained-glass window." Well, I guess he stole the line from Raymond Chandler.
