Osmosis extraordinaire

Mark Stephens, the media luvvie extraordinaire (sorry, that should be media lawyer extraordinaire), has been having a little bit of a problem with his siblings of late.
It seems that our Mr Stephens has annoyed his sister with the effortless zeal with which he seems to achieve things. Not through any fault of his own, you understand, but because his enduring popularity and brilliance on all things media has led to East London University awarding him a doctorate (presumably in law, but one supposes that it could equally be in hair).
Normally, doctorates take between three and five years of hard graft to achieve, just as Stephens' sister has done, so you can understand her feeling a little miffed at her brother's latest accolade being awarded for, well… not a lot, really.
